Stainless steel pressure gauges are industrial quality with heavy-duty sensing elements and case designs. These gauges are typically used in more demanding applications. The stainless steel gauge is built for extended life, clean flowing media and harsh corrosive environments.
Industrial quality gauges feature heavy-duty sensing elements, stainless cases, and are typically used in more demanding applications. These gauges usually have greater accuracy requirements over general purpose gauges. The industrial gauge is built for extended life and designed for harsh environments.
Most low pressure gauges utilize a capsule or diaphragm sensing element and accurately measure pressures less than 15 PSIG. Typical measuring units are inches of water, mm of water, oz/sq inch, and pounds per square inch.
Commercial gauges are economical and often referred to as general purpose or equipment gauges. Though commercial gauges may be ruggedly constructed, the service conditions are not expected to be severe. Most commercial gauges are constructed with black ABS or painted steel cases with brass internal parts and connection.
A pressure transducer converts an applied pressure into an electrical analog output signal that is both linear and proportional to the applied pressure to the transducer. Pressure sensors and pressure transmitter are types of pressure transducers. The output electrical signal from a pressure transducer is sent to computers, PLC's, and digital panel meters or other devices that interpret this signal and use it to display, record, and/or change the pressure in the system being monitored.
Air regulators reduce a supplied compressed air pressure to a desired constant lower output pressure. The secondary pressure is generally set by turning an adjustment knob. Air regulators are selected by required accuracy, pipe size, flow rate, pressure range, temperature and maximum inlet pressure. Reduced air pressure is highly desirable for energy conservation, safety requirements, improved air actuator control, controlling force or torque, industrial processes, and air instrumentation.
Electro-Pneumatic regulators are air pressure regulators that reduce a supply pressure to a regulated output pressure, directly proportional to an electrical input signal. I/P pressure transducers control the output pressure with a two wire current or three wire voltage input. The regulated air pressure is used to control actuators, positioners, brakes, cylinders and other pneumatic equipment.
