Are you planning to set up your own industrial plant or factory? If you want to facilitate the smooth functioning of industrial processes then pressure transducers are a must. However, for this first you should know what pressure transducers are and what they do.
Pressure Transducers – The basics explained
Pressure transducers, in simple terms, are devices which sense the pressure applied on different industrial equipment. They can accurately calibrate the pressure applied by gases or liquids. Keep in mind that they can also sense the pressure under variable conditions.
This is the precise reason why pressure transducers are used in both aeronautics and oceanographic vehicles. The conditions are extremely variable in both cases and only a pressure transducer can measure the pressure in such conditions. Different types of pressure transducers are manufactured, keeping in mind the specific industrial conditions.
For example, a distinct pressure transducer is available for sensitive industrial environments exposed to an intense range of temperatures.
If you are looking for an economical transducer, then you should opt for the strain gage type. This particular transducer works on the principle of pressure exerted which causes strain on instrument gages. The transducer then accurately measures the strain caused.
Understand that pressure transducers are also available in different types. Absolute, gauge sensors, differential pressure sensors and sealed sensors are some of the various types of pressure transducers.
