pressure gauge | pressure transmitter

Safety should always be top of mind when it comes to critical process applications. The safety of your operators and your customers is crucial and using high-quality pressure measuring instruments can help you avoid disaster. Analog pressure gauges are an efficient and reliable way to measure pressure in your process. But with so many digital options on the market today, why wouldn’t you want the latest technology and all the bells and whistles that come with it? The answer is: you can have both!

Calibration | zero and span

By: Bobby Gemelas, Product Manager
June 20th, 2022

Your pressure sensors are an important part of your application, ensuring accurate and reliable measurements and the safety of your process and its operators. To keep your processes working properly, recalibration of your sensors may be necessary over time. Sensors can degrade over time as components are exposed to wear, temperature and cycling. This can lead to a loss of stability and drift in the output signal of the sensor away from its published specification.

diaphragm seals | flushing port

A diaphragm seal is a useful accessory to protect your pressure measurement instruments from corrosive media or clogging from sludge or slurries, especially in wastewater processing. But diaphragm seals can also be at risk of clogging, which can lead to equipment failure and put a stop to your process. So, how can you help protect your diaphragm seal from the negative effects of this type of process media?

pressure transducers | pressure sensors

Your pressure sensor is a vital component of your equipment or system. When properly specified your system will operate safely and to expected performance levels over the design life of the system or equipment, but only if you have the right sensor that’s appropriate for your application. The wrong pressure sensor can result in equipment damage, worker injury or out-of-specification measurements. So, how can you ensure you choose the right one?

pressure gauge | ultra high pressure

Water jet or water blaster applications require specialized equipment to handle the ultra-high pressure involved. If you’re using pressure instruments not designed to handle up to 100,000 psi, you could damage your equipment and disrupt your process. Ensure you have the right tool for the job with Ashcroft’s new T6500 ultra-high-pressure gauge, specially made for applications using pressurized water to clean surfaces.

pressure gauge | ultra high pressure

Pressure gauges for 40,000 psi and above are critical for numerous applications where monitoring extremely high system pressures is a required safety precaution. Such gauges must be manufactured so they can withstand the rugged conditions they will be exposed to at these extremely high pressures.
