Anvil snubbers are velocity sensitive restraints for minimizing the movement of critical equipment and piping that if subjected to dynamic movements may cause catastrophic failure.
They are the seat belts of the piping system, providing controlled restraint during seismic and dynamic events, while allowing normal thermal movement.
There are seven standard sizes with cylinder bores of 1 1⁄2” to 8” and with normal load ratings from 3,000 pounds to 128,000 pounds. All are available with 5”, 10”, 15”, or 20” strokes except the 1 1⁄2” size which is offered with 5” and 10” strokes only.
Snubbers are available with integral or remote reservoirs.
