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.
Some pressure instruments require a fill fluid to help with pulsation and vibration in certain applications. Filling the cavity of a pressure gauge with liquid lubricates and dampens the internal components to reduce or eliminate the effects of heavy vibration and/or pulsation. A system fill is commonly used in assemblies when one or more instruments are installed above a diaphragm seal. There are many types of fill fluid options available today, so which one is best for your application?

Your application requires specialized pressure measuring equipment that has the proper accuracy, safety and quality features you need. If your application involves excessive pulsation and/or vibration you need to take measures to protect your pressure gauge from damage.
There’s a wide range of accessories for your pressure instruments that can help make your process safer, more efficient and precise. Snubbers, dampeners, capillaries, pressure limiting valves, siphons and other accessories are common additions to the most challenging applications. One question I’ve heard often during my time in this industry is: do these accessories impact the accuracy of pressure measuring instruments?
To ensure the highest quality of water for use across many essential industrial, commercial, and residential sectors, you need the right tool for the job. From material processing and waste management to personal use, a steady supply of application-appropriate water is essential. But how do you know if your water quality is sufficient?
I was recently working on an industrial project for a critical application that required a lot of instrumentation, specifically pressure gauges. The client’s only criteria seemed to be the cost, with very little consideration to the application. The buyer kept saying, “A gauge is a gauge. What is the cost?” I replied that not all applications are the same, and not all pressure gauges are created equal! The only honest answer to “how much does a pressure gauge cost” is: “It depends.”
