Pressure Transducer Temperature Specifications: An Overview

A common concern is the performance of the transducer in various temperature conditions. Temperature is an important specification as it has a direct effect on the accuracy of the transducer. In this article we will discuss the different temperature specifications that are commonly found on our datasheets and how to interpret them.

Wetted Material Options Offered By Core Sensors

One of the most important steps when specifying the most appropriate sensor for your application is selecting the wetted material of the process connection (or pressure port).Core Sensors offers a wide range of wetted materials to ensure the most adequate compatibility in your application.

Cooling Adapter for Extreme Temperatures

For applications where the temperature is outside of the specified temperature range of the transducer, Core Sensors offers an all 316L SS cooling adapter. This adapter isolates the transducer by increasing the distance from the extreme media temperature.

Compound Pressure Transducers

In a compound pressure transducer, the sensor is zero referenced to atmospheric pressure. The transducer has an offset zero output signal such that the baseline signal measures a full vacuum pressure range of -14.7 PSI (or -1 bar). Typically this is offered for low pressure, gauge referenced transducers.

Bi-Directional Pressure Transducers for Vapor Recovery

Core Sensors offers a variety of high quality bi-directional pressure transducers for use in low pressure vapor recovery operations. Unlike a unidirectional pressure transducer that can measure pressures from zero to a defined positive pressure (i.e. 0 to 70mBar), bi-directional pressure transducers measure both positive and negative pressure (i.e. -70mBar to +70mBar).
