Common practice is to put a "pigtail" of coiled tubing in the line. It partially fills with condensed steam and acts to keep the sensor cooler.

If I mount a pressure transducer just after the pump on a "pigtail" will I get a correct reading just like if I had a standard pressure gauge mounted on my portafilter?

Buy the way: I have ordered a flow sensor off eBay. I plan to mount it before the pump, but I don't know if it will work. http://www.ebay.com/itm/151049733331
