If the conveyed fluid is hazardous or under high pressure, a branch
fitted with a bleed valve is inserted between the guage and its isolating
valve, to relieve pressure and /or drain the liquid before servicing the
gage. They are connected to the drain system.

The above mentioned is the primary use of the bleed valve, the other uses
of bleed valve in case of instruments is: it can be used for taking sample and
for adding a comparison gage to the line.

Hope this helps..
