  • $\begingroup$ Please provide more context - where have you seen the term? What project are you working on which might require a bypass? Are you thinking of a valve? The more information you give, the higher the quality of answer that you will receive. $\endgroup$ Jan 29 '18 at 14:49

“By-pass” generally means to take an alternative path or route around something, so could be a village or a valve or a flow meter.

Sometimes meters have a by-pass arrangement with 3 valves so that they can be replaced without stopping the flow.
