Pressure Switches Offer Customer Flexibility

November 15, 2010

Pressure Switches are rugged field-mounted instruments. The pressure sensing element of the pressure switch is a force-balance, piston-actuated assembly. The sensing element is sealed by a flexible diaphragm and a static o-ring or an optional metal diaphragm may be welded to the pressure port for more demanding applications, thereby eliminating the o-ring. A wide selection of wetted parts materials for media compatibility and containment are available. Features include: rugged construction, high-cycle rate tolerance, self-locking adjustment, high over range and proof pressures, narrow dead band and excellent corrosion resistance to hostile environments.
