Pressure Sensor Industry Information

Pressure Sensor

Pressure sensors are instruments used to measure and report the pressure of a fluid in an enclosure. Pressure sensors are important safeguards for many kinds of equipment that involve pressurized fluid.

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.

Applications of Pressure Sensors

Pressure sensors can be used to measure:

  • Fuel pressure in a fuel line.
  • Oil pressure in an engine.
  • The barometric pressure at a weather station.
  • Water pressure in a pump system.

Industries Using Pressure Sensors

Pressure sensors are very important tools in many industries because they use pressurized fluid in some way. These industries rely on pressure sensors to ensure the effectiveness and safety of their products and processes.

  • Wastewater Treatment
  • Petrochemical Extraction and Development
  • Plastics Processing and Thermoforming
  • Automotive Manufacturing
  • Aerospace Products Development

Types of Pressure Sensors

There are five types of pressure sensors:

Gauge Sensors
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 perfect 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
Used to measure the pressure that is less than local atmospheric pressure.
Differential Sensors
Measure the difference between two or more pressure inputs in the unit.
Sealed Sensors
Similar to the gauge sensor, except that it measures pressure relative to the pressure at sea level, 16.4 PSI.

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... Read More About This
