Why use In-line Filters for Flow Instruments?

With mass flow instruments, the accessory of choice often is a communication cable, these are essential in allowing you to communicate with an instrument and monitor or access the very information that you purchased the instrument to make available. However, one accessory is often over-looked and can be far more essential to the long-term performance and life-time cost of running an instrument, especially in industrial applications; in-line filters.

Non-Clogging Submersible Pressure Transducer For Wastewater Lift Stations

Wastewater lift stations, or pumping stations, are an integral part in the transportation and eventual treatment of wastewater and other used water. Wastewater is commonly transported through piping systems, using gravity to move the water from one location to another. Using gravity helps keep costs down during transportation. However, gravity cannot be used when the wastewater needs to be transported to a higher elevation. This is where lift stations come in. There are three main components of a lift station: Wet well – This is a single tank, located underground, where the wastewater is held until it is ready to

Compound Pressure Transducers

In a compound pressure transducer, the sensor is zero-referenced to atmospheric pressure. In other words, the transducer has been calibrated to provide the zero-pressure output value at full vacuum range of -14.7 PSI (or -1 bar). Typically this is offered for low and medium pressure range, gauge referenced transducers (vented or sealed). It is possible to use a compound pressure range on higher pressures but the tolerances of the transducer, such as full scale error, may exceed the vacuum range of -14.7 PSI. It is not recommended to use compound pressure ranges higher than 500 PSI in order to maintain

Understand Pressure Transducer Temperature Specifications

A common concern when selecting a pressure transducer is the performance in various temperature conditions. Temperature is an important specification, as it has a direct effect on the accuracy of the transducer. Significant errors in the pressure readings or complete failure of the transducer are possible if installed in an environment that is outside the specified ranges. In this blog post, we will discuss the different temperature specifications commonly found on our datasheets and how to interpret them to make the most informed pressure transducer selection. This post will use CS10 Industrial Pressure Transducer specifications for examples throughout this post.
