  • New Innovations in Air Pressure Monitoring

    Air pressure sensors are useful sensors that can identify the air pressure levels in an object. A wide variety of products use these sensors, including pressure cookers, automotive tire gauges, and industrial pressure containers. Monitoring the pressure of a container is important to ensure that the pressure does not rise high enough to explode or drop low enough to cause problems in the system. New innovations for air pressure sensors are created every few years. One new innovative method that has been created for the use of monitoring tire pressure...

  • Energy Conversion

    A simple way for me to think of a transducer converting energy is a human eating food and receiving energy from it. This may sound too farfetched to some, but it helps me understand how air pressure transducer manufacturers have to make air convert into a readable energy output for an air sensor. Many times the terms transducers and sensors are used interchangeably. Although, you do need a transducer to have a sensor they are not the same, but it is usually understood if the terms are used synonymously. Air...

  • A Nozzle Reader

    Hidden within the nozzle of an air blaster, which is a piece of industrial equipment used to power dry products that are in the midst of being manufactured, is an air pressure sensor. This small mechanism is vital to the health of the nozzle and the efficiency of the blasting machine it is attached to. Better known as compressed air machines, which are not only used to power dry but also used as a power source for a variety of mechanical processes such as presses, these air blasters need to...

  • The Measurement of Air Pressure Sensors

    In my family, being artistic is the unofficial standard that was not a prerequisite to be loved, but somehow happened to be true for almost all of us. I write while my brother paints and my youngest sister sings and dabbles in acting. However, my second youngest sister is a math wiz, and doesn't have a creative bone in her body. She is separate because of this, but still a vital part of our family, one I wouldn't know what to do without. Her skills may be coming from a...

Industry Information

Air Pressure Sensors

Air pressure sensors measure the force of air as exerted on the device and then convert the information into a readable display. Transducers are similar; they are designed to convert one form of energy into another, while sensors are explicitly intended to measure and provide a reading of the measurement. Sensors are often composed of transducers, so the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. They are frequently encased in stainless steel and found in nozzles or connectors, although separate electronic instruments are common as well.

Air pressure sensors are important because an incorrect pressure can cause injury to nearby personnel or damage surrounding materials and equipment. If a mechanic is unsure how much pressure is in a tire, for example, he could overfill it and cause it to burst, or he could under-fill it and cause excessive wear to the car. Air pressure sensors are used to monitor pneumatic air pressure in heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, pneumatic compressors, gas cylinders and other systems that rely on maintaining certain pressure levels. They are also useful for determining the air pressure of a given room, because air flows from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure. Hospitals monitor air pressure to minimize the risk of spreading infection and disease.


Air pressure sensors are small enough to fit in an open hand; some are the size of a fingernail. They rely on the use of a silicon chip, also called an integrated circuit. The pressure of the air bends the chip according to how much force is being exerted. The bend causes the charge in the integrated circuit to change, which the sensor detects and uses to determine the air pressure. It transmits the information to a gauge or display. Some sensors have audible alarms to alert the operator that the pressure is either too high or too low, while other systems, such as those found in cars, have a light to inform the driver if tire pressure is incorrect. Air pressure sensors are sometimes combined with other useful devices such as pressure regulators and calibrators. Pressure regulators control the amount of pressure running through a system and can be altered to increase or reduce the pressure based on the reading the sensor provides. Calibrators are used to determine if the sensor is making accurate readings. These instruments receive input from the system and compare that with the reading on the sensor to make sure that everything is functioning correctly and accurately. It is a safety hazard if air pressure is unregulated or misread.
