Accurate Differential Pressure Sensor

Dec. 11, 2007
The Model DP86 is a wet-wet differential pressure sensor that is capable of reducing measurement error in fluid flow, for both low pressure gas and corrosive liquid measurement, says the vendor. 

“The advantage of using a differential pressure sensor instead of two-gage sensors for measuring fluid flow is that a much higher sensitivity transducer can be used without risking overpressure damage. By using a differential pressure sensor, differential pressure accuracy is independent of the total system pressure,”  says Pressure Products Manager Dave Wagner.

The DP86 is a double-sided stainless steel isolated, piezoresistive silicon pressure sensor packaged in a rugged 316L stainless steel housing, which makes it suitable for use in liquids and corrosive environments.
