High Static, Low DP Switch handles challenging applications.

September 3, 2014

Combining sensitive elastic element and heavily constructed containment vessel, DDS-Series can control differential pressures from 0/6–0/150 in. of water on pressure lines up to 1,500 psi. UL-Listed NEMA 4 water-tight and NEMA 7 explosionproof versions are available with various electrical switches, wetted materials, and setpoint options. Supplied in cast-aluminum housing, differential pressure switch employs near frictionless switching mechanism for optimal repeatability. Read More

Isolation Ring prevents instruments from clogging.

July 1, 2014

Installed in pipeline, Ashcroft® Type 80 or 81 keeps pressure instruments safe from clogging. With process medium contacting only flexible inside wall of isolator, pressure is translated through liquid fill to sensing device atop ring. Needle valve can be incorporated to dampen effects of pulsation, while exclusive Safe Quick Release™ option will permit harmless, leak-free removal of instrument for calibration or maintenance while system is still under pressure.
