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", that is, the force required to move the piston increases substantially, usually as a result of the closing of a valve. View Product Information

Mechanical Snubbers

Mechanical snubbers have two modes of operation. In passive mode, i.e., motion caused by thermal loads, the resisting mechanism is disengaged and the snubber "free wheels" with very low resistance. In active mode the mechanism is engaged, and the snubber limits the acceleration to a low threshold value. There are other types of mechanical snubbers, but these are the most common ones.

Sway Braces

A sway brace is a device used for controlling vibration, absorbing shock loadings; guiding or restraining the movement of pipe resulting from thermal expansion; bracing a pipe line against sway. View Product Information

Sway Struts

A sway strut is a device used to restrain movement of piping in one direction while providing for movement due to thermal expansion or contraction in another direction. View Product Information
