5 Reasons Digital Pressure Gauges Are Used More Than Ever

Digital pressure gauges have been around for decades, but until recently, they have become more relevant in industrial, laboratories, and testing applications than ever before.   So, why the change? Here are a few reasons why digital pressure gauge usage has surged. 1.) Cost – The cost of digital gauges has dropped dramatically over the last 5-7 …

Pressure Gauge, Transducer, or Switch Configurations for High Temperatures Using Cooling Towers

Standard specifications of pressure instruments, whether its a pressure gauge, pressure transducer, or pressure switch, are typically limited to the high temperatures they can see without experiencing faults in accuracy or potential failures.  For example on a pressure gauge, the more common high temperature ratings are between 160F to 200F.  And on pressure transducers, the …

Consolidate Instruments And Eliminate Potential Leaks By Using Manifolds

The use of manifolds on any application is a great way to consolidate instrumentation and valves into one location.  This not only saves space but also help eliminate potential leak points on the application.  Below is a picture of a perfect example of an application using multiple valves and tubing,which not only is cluster of …

How To Use Diaphragm Seals On A Differential Pressure Gauge

For differential pressure applications with caustic or thick medias, mounting a differential pressure gauge directly to the process can be detrimental to the integrity of the gauge.  The wetted material of the gauge may corrode away or the differential gauge could potentially become clogged. A solution to this problem would be to isolate the wetted …

How To Prevent Pressure Gauges, Transducers, or Switches From Clogging

A pressure instrument by itself typically has a small orifice for the media to enter into it for measurement.  This works perfectly fine for applications such as water, air, or oil measurements.  But what do you do if the media has solids in it, is thick, and/or solidifies when it cools that can potentially clog …
