Applications for diaphragm pressure gauges:

  • With liquid filled case for applications with high dynamic pressure pulsations or vibration
  • Suitable in corrosive environments for gaseous, liquid or highly viscous media.
  • Process industry: chemical/petrochemical, power stations, mining, on and offshore, environmental technology, mechanical engineering and plant construction

Special features of diaphragm pressure gauges:

  • Threaded or open flange process connections
  • Wide selection of special materials
  • All stainless steel construction
  • High overpressure safety
  • Ranges from 6" H20 (16 mbar)

Specifications for diaphragm pressure gauges:

Diaphragm pressure gauges measure gauge, absolute and differential pressure. In processing industries, they can be installed in applications with highly corrosive, viscous media.

Diaphragm pressure gauges are ideal for these harsh conditions because the media can clog the narrow presure ports of threaded connections of Bourdon tube instruments as well as the internals of the tube.

To prevent such clogging, diaphragm pressure gauges are connected to the process with an open flange. This configuration provides a large pressure chamber, which prohibts media from settling.
