  • Pressure Regulators: A Serious Safety Measure

    Almost every system and device used in industrial, commercial and residential settings requires some sort of safety feature, whether it is a warning label on a can of food or a hair dryer, or a linear slide that limits how a machine opens and closes to a certain extent. With pipes, a safety mechanism is necessary to ensure that if there is a back-up or some other sort of problem with the gas or liquid flowing through the system, the pipes don't burst in response. That sort of reaction would...

  • The Popular Pressure Sensor

    Popularity is a fleeting thing when you are in high school, and it seems like the most important characteristic one can own. However, it is a thing that fades for most people as they move on to college and the adult world, and they forget why it was so important once. Popularity in industrial and commercial products is something that rarely fades if a product truly is necessary in our day and age. Since the beginning of the machine age, pressure sensors have been one of the most popular products...

  • Absolute Pressure Sensor: The Perfect Vacuum

    A vacuum is not always the classic vacuum that lives in residential closets and gets taken out to suck up cat hair, dog fur and spilled cereal. Some vacuums are used in much more scientific applications, employing the same general idea as commercial vacuums but in a very different way. The phrase perfect vacuum refers to the pressure difference between absolute pressure and the atmosphere. Perfect vacuum is a standard that the absolute pressure is built upon, creating a measurement by way of and through the perfect vacuum. It involves...

  • Tackling Tough Fluid Sensing Challenges

    If an application calls for the accurate fluid sensing of liquid level, pressure or flow, Gems Sensors & Controls can help. Their extensive fluid sensing portfolio has evolved from nearly 60 years of field-proven successes in a variety of markets. Common customer fluid sensing challenges can include the point-level or continuous level sensing of hydraulic oils. They might involve the monitoring of sticky, corrosive, lubricating or coating fluids. They could require reliable measurements of sticky foams and suspended solids. Or, perhaps the monitoring of fluid media with changing dielectric properties...

  • Gems Sensors & Controls Announces the Launch of the 3500 Series Pressure Transducer

    New 3500 Series pressure transducers follow on from the highly successful 3100 and 3200 series transducers from Gems, bringing a versatile low pressure capability to the product line and opening up a host of new applications across medical and general industrial markets.  Available in 7 pressure ranges from 0-1 bar (0-14.5 PSI) to 0-16 bar (0-232 PSI), the 3500 series is characterized by its compact size, absolute, compound and gauge reference capability and its ability to operate over a wide temperature range...

Industry Information

Pressure Sensor

Pressure sensors are instruments used to measure and report the pressure of a fluid in an enclosure. Pressure sensors can be used to measure fuel pressure in a fuel line, oil pressure in an engine, barometric pressure at a weather station, water pressure in a pump system and many other kinds of pressure in many contexts. Pressure sensors are important safeguards to many kinds of equipment that involve pressurized fluid.

Because so many industries involve pressurized fluid in some way, pressure sensors are very important tools throughout industry. Wastewater treatment, petrochemical extraction and development, plastics processing and thermoforming, automotive manufacturing, aerospace products development and a long list of other industries rely on pressure sensors in some capacity to ensure the effectiveness and safety of their products and processes. Pressure sensors are also often known as pressure transmitters; the two terms are synonymous, and they are descriptive of a pressure sensor’s purpose: to make monitoring technicians or systems aware of the extent to which an enclosure is pressurized. Some pressure sensors can also be pressure regulators, which both sense and control pressure levels, sometimes automatically and sometimes semi-automatically. Such sensors are designed to monitor changes in pressure and are often connected to safety devices that activate shut-off switches.

There are five types of pressure sensors: gauge, absolute, vacuum, differential, and sealed. Gauge sensors are calibrated to measure the pressure relative to atmospheric pressure at a given location. Atmospheric pressure at sea level is approximately 14.7 PSI. Because many, if not most, of the systems, equipment and processes that require the use of pressure sensors are only concerned with pressure levels relative to 14.7 PSI, gauge sensors are the most common of the five types of pressure sensors. Absolute sensors measure the pressure relative to 0 PSI, which is the complete absence of pressure. Since it is impossible to completely evacuate an enclosure (no prefect vacuums exist in nature either), it is more accurate and meaningful to say that absolute pressure sensors measure pressure without regard for ambient pressure conditions. Such pressure sensors are useful in conditions that are subject to frequent ambient pressure changes; scuba gear, for example, often employs absolute pressure sensors.Vacuum sensors are used to measure pressure that is less than local atmospheric pressure, while differential sensors measure the difference between two or more pressure inputs in the unit. The last kind of sensor, sealed, is similar to the gauge sensor, except that it measures pressure relative to the pressure at sea level, 16.4 PSI.
