5 Considerations When Selecting a Pressure Transducer for Industrial Applications

1. Pressure

The first and most important consideration is pressure. A number of questions must be answered to ensure the correct transducer is selected. What is the pressure range that the transducer will measure? What is the maximum pressure the transducer will encounter? What is the potential for over pressure in the system?

How to use a single Power Supply to power pressure transducers

When installing a pressure transducer system selecting a power supply, may not be one of the first things that comes to your mind. Since a single power supply can be used to power multiple pressure transducers, many regard it as a non-vital task. Nonetheless, it is essential to have the proper configurations between the power source and devices in order for all components to communicate properly and to avoid receiving inaccurate data. Here are some of the best practices we found for using a single power supply to power multiple devices.

Pressure Sensor Calibration for Cleanrooms

Within a building there many applications for differential pressure transducers, but none are more critical than those measuring the pressure parameters in a cleanroom. A cleanroom is a critical area used to manufacture medications, containers, enclosures, and other medical devices that require the products to remain sterile from manufacturing through delivery to the customer. The products manufactured in these environments are used to treat and care for the general population and are handled differently than other products.

How To Measure Velocity And Flow

In HVAC/R applications it is helpful to understand the methods used to determine air velocity. Air velocity (distance traveled per unit of time) is most often expressed in feet per minute (FPM).  Multiplying air velocity by the area of a duct allows you to determine the air volume flowing past a point in the duct per unit of time. Volume flow is generally measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM).

What is the difference between Unidirectional vs. Bidirectional Differential Pressure Ranges?

Nowadays, there are many applications that require positive and negative differential pressures between a reference room and a room of concern. Isolation rooms, respirators, ventilation and air exhaust systems, overshooting and shooting a given liquid level inhalation, and exhalation setups, are a few applications where these pressures are monitored. It is important to understand the difference between unidirectional and bidirectional differential pressure transducers to make sure you choose the best unit for your application.

How to Troubleshoot a Pressure Transducer

Pressure transducers today are more rugged and reliable than ever. Made of stainless steel construction, they provide abundant overpressure protection, improved total error band, and offer negligible orientation and vibration effects. They are ideal for long-term use even in harsh environments of extreme temperature, humidity, and vibration.

Can A Room Pressure Monitor Help Me Save Energy?

Monitoring and controlling room pressure in laboratory and healthcare settings can do more than just ensure directional airflow (positive or negative pressure rooms). Proper room pressure also contributes to saving energy. Overpressure or under-pressure scenarios mean that airflow, or even temperature control, are not optimal.
