Pressure Sensing Elements
Pressure sensing elements can be a bit of a minefield to establish the right product for your application. In general, there are two types, either oil filled capsules, or ceramics.
Oil filled pressure sensing elements are available in different sizes and shapes, but the main considerations are going to be the desired output either digital or analogue, material of construction, power consumption, and the pressure range needed. This will dictate the final options available.
Ceramics are a credible alternative however will require an o’ring seal which could present difficulties in assembly or media compatibility. The benefits however are lower cost, lower pressure ranges.
We are more than happy to give you as much advice as we can to ensure the right solution is found.
