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?
Hydraulic machinery exceeds nearly every other mechanical form of power transmission when it comes to working in extreme environments. Excavators, tree harvesters, mining and tow trucks and other hydraulic vehicles perform the harshest tasks on uneven terrains with heavy loads that apply tremendous forces on hydraulic systems. These tasks can generate extreme shock and vibrations, as well as dramatic changes in temperature, dust and moisture. In addition, pressure spikes/impulses generated within hydraulic systems can present a significant challenge to the reliability of internal components like pressure instruments. So, how can you optimize the performance of your mobile hydraulics against hazards?
