pressure switch | microswitch

Your pressure switch can be impacted by many factors when used in an application. Pressure and temperature ranges can interfere with your measurements if you are using the wrong pressure instrument for the job. An appropriate microswitch for your pressure switch can mean the difference between a reliable, repeatable reading or not. How can you ensure you are choosing the right microswitch for your application?

Thermowells | Bimetal Thermometers | thermocouple

Thermowells are essential to protecting your thermometer or temperature sensor in your high-pressure or high-temperature applications. They can protect your investment and keep your measurements accurate, no matter how extreme the environment. One of the top questions we receive here at Ashcroft from those in the temperature measurement industry is how to properly fit a thermowell. What measurements are needed? What is a u-dimension and how does it factor in? Many factors are at play, and it can be easy to get the wrong size if you aren’t paying attention.

pressure transducers | low pressure

Accurate and reliable pressure measurements are crucial to maintaining the efficiency of your low-pressure applications, such as in cleanrooms and isolation rooms. For these critical applications in the health industry, inaccurate measurements could result in the contamination of your entire process. How can you ensure your pressure transducer can handle your low-pressure environment?
