Press Release Summary:
Series 1500 Sensors measure high differential pressures without fluid migration. Diaphram is combined with piston-magnet pointer assembly to completely seal piston area. Bodies and wetted parts are anodized aluminum, type 316 stainless steel, naval brass, or PVC. Available in switch and gauge-switch models that measure more than 18 pressure ranges from 0-5 to 0-300 psid, instruments include 1 or 2 independently adjustable reed switches.
Original Press Release:
"Rolling Diaphragm" Sensor Measures High Differential Pressures without Fluid Migration
MILFORD, Conn. -- The "rolling" action of an elastomeric diaphragm sensor in Series 1500 differential pressure instruments from Orange Research measures differences in pressure between two points in a system. Diaphragm type instruments are used where fluid migration between high and low pressure regions cannot be tolerated. The diaphragm is combined with a piston-magnet pointer assembly to completely seal the piston area. This configuration also allows the measurement of relatively high differential pressures of up to 300 psid.
Series 1500 instruments are constructed with heavy-duty anodized aluminum, type 316 stainless steel, naval brass or PVC bodies and wetted parts. Maximum line pressure is 3,000 psig for all body materials except PVC, which should not exceed 100 psig. Available in switch and gauge-switch models that measure more than 18 pressure ranges from 0-5 to 0-300 psid, the instruments include one or two independently adjustable reed switches-or a DPDT relay can be mounted in an integral NEMA-4 enclosure for applications where water, oil or dust are present.
