Low Pressure Sensors Deliver Innovative Solutions
Low pressure sensors have many uses from the medical field to process automation and HVAC applications. The first step in controlling any amount of pressure is to measure and monitor it. This is where a pressure sensor is needed. Pressure sensors are designed to measure the amount of pressure in either liquids or gases. Low pressure sensors are equipped with a higher level of sensitivity in order to measure very small pressure changes. At Validyne, our low pressure sensors go as low as 0.1 H20 (air) or 3 H2O (liquids), full scale.
In addition to simply measuring changes in pressure, these sensors can also indicate fluid velocity, fluid levels, flow, and altitude. These additional features make pressure sensors important tools for many projects. Low pressure sensors are often used to determine if there is a leak in a system. If pressure is dropping due to a leak, the pressure sensor will pick up on measure the decay over time, making the operator aware that there is an issue needing attention. Depending on the project, it may be most effective to choose a low pressure sensor with multiple ports. For furnace draft applications, the Validyne model DR800 is a great choice.
In some cases, special customization is the only way to achieve the exact results necessary for a particular application. Many low pressure sensors can be completely customized to function specifically for a given job. At Validyne, we offer a variety of low pressure sensors to meet the needs of any situation. Our products provide top-of-the-line quality and innovative solutions. Our knowledgeable team can help you choose which product will best fit your needs. If we do not have your product configuration on hand, we can customize it for you.
Because low pressure sensors are so valuable in the overall functionality of a project, it is important to make sure you are using quality products and installing them properly. If the pressure sensor fails, a leak could easily go undetected, which could undermine your entire project.
