Hydarulic and Mechanical Snubber

Hydraulic & Mechanical Snubbers

Snubbers are restraining devices used to control the movement of pipe and equipment during abnormal dynamic conditions such as earthquakes, turbine trips, safety/relief valve discharge and rapid valve closure. The design of a snubber allows free thermal movement of a component during normal operation conditions, but restrains the component in abnormal conditions.

Hydraulic Snubbers

Most hydraulic snubbers have a piston which is relatively unconstrained in motion at low displacement rates. At high displacement rates the piston "locks up" and acts as a rigid restraint.

General Information

Mechanical Snubbers

A mechanical snubber uses gears and springs to produce the restraint force when activated.
