Pressure Gauge Accessories

Dale Foster Sales offers a variety of accessories for pressure gauge testing, installation and use. For detailed product information, specifications, pricing, and availability on pressure gauge accessories; please begin by selecting one of the product groups listed below:

Pressure Gauge Snubbers

If your system has pressure spikes, water-hammers, pressure pulsations from a pump, or rapid pressure changes, using a pressure gauge snubber can prolong the life sensors. Snubbers are designed to improve readability and prevent wear on delicate gauge mechanisms by slowing rapid pressure changes and reducing shock and chattering.

A pressure gauge snubber dampens the spikes and surges that, over time, will cause a pressure gage or transducer to fail. The pressure snubber has a porous metal disk that protects your gauge or transducer. Easy to install, the snubber goes between the gauge or transducer and the process. If a single snubber does not correct the oscillation, it recommended placing an additional snubber in line with the first.

DFS-Gauges carries pressure gauge snubbers from WIKA, Trerice and Ashcroft. See our blog entry about See our blog entry about When to Use a Pressure Snubber and How to Choose One.

Needle Valves

Designed for leak tight shut-off of flow to the pressure gauge, these needle valves allow isolation of the instrument from the pressure media for maintenance or removal. Needle valves may also be used to throttle flow and aid in dampening pulsations. These valves are available in a choice of connections and materials of construction.

Gauge Cocks

Quarter-turn gauge cocks provide an economical way to shut off the flow of air to a pressure instrument, allowing the instrument to be isolated from the pressure media or removed from service. These brass gauge cocks are intended for use on air lines where leakage is not a concern.
