chemical industry | acid leak detection
When your application is exposed to harsh acids and chemicals, your instrumentation needs to stand up to the effects. Substances such as hydrofluoric acid can create dangerous conditions and corrode certain materials, which could result in hazardous leaks. How can you ensure you’re choosing the safest instrumentation for your acid application? This article will discuss harsh acid applications and what types of pressure instruments can best handle these severe conditions.
pressure transducers | semiconductor
In semiconductor applications, your pressure instrumentation needs to stand up to the conditions as well as meet high-purity standards and regulations. Ashcroft's line of fluoropolymer pressure transducers provides reliable pressure measurements for your semiconductor applications. How do you know which of these transducers is the right one for your application? This blog will compare Ashcroft’s ZL91, ZL92 and ZL95 pressure transducers and discuss their features and benefits to help you find the best solution for your needs.

Hydrogen is one of the fastest-growing alternative energy resources used today. Your pressure gauge is a vital component of your equipment or system. Many of these hydrogen applications have processes that can cause hydrogen ion diffusion that can damage your instruments. When properly specified, your system will need to operate safely and to expected performance levels over the design life of the system or equipment, but only if you have the right pressure gauge for your equipment’s application. The wrong pressure gauge can result in potential equipment damage, worker injury or out-of-specification measurements. So, how can you ensure you choose the right one for a hydrogen application? To ensure you have the best pressure gauge for the job, there are a few things that you need to consider.
Pressure Instruments | chemical industry
The chemical industry manufactures a wide range of chemical and material products for industries that require durable and reliable measurement and monitoring technology for their production. You need accurate and reliable measurement instruments that can stand up to harsh chemical environments. Misapplication or failure of instrumentation can lead to severe consequences like equipment loss, employee injury and environmental damage, so it is essential to use instruments engineered to withstand the severe demands of chemical processing operations. This article will discuss some factors to consider when selecting the best pressure and temperature instrumentation for your chemical application.
temperature sensor | thermocouple
Temperature can be measured with a variety of methods. Glass thermometers, resistance temperature devices (RTDs), bimetal instruments, gas expansion (gas-actuated) thermometers and infrared radiation, to name a few. Each offers a unique set of advantages for specific applications. Another extremely common temperature measurement device is the thermocouple. Its simple design makes it remarkably versatile, reliable and cost-effective. But how does a thermocouple work? This article will describe the function of thermocouples, the different types and their material composition.
Pressure Instruments | cryogenics
Liquefied gases, such as nitrogen, oxygen and helium, are used in many cryogenic applications. To measure pressure in these situations, your pressure instruments must be able to stand up to very low temperatures. So, how can you effectively measure process pressure when your pressure gauge is not rated for such a low cryogenic temperature? In this article, I will discuss cryogenic applications, and the different mounting options and accessories available that can help protect your pressure instruments from the effects of very low temperatures.
