How industrial pressure sensors are used in harsh environments?

Submitted by • December 30, 2019 n2s-tech.com

The pressure sensor is typically an instrument that consists of a sensitive element to determine the actual pressure in the sensor. They are designed in such a way, that they can be used in industrial applications and also in harsh environmental conditions.

A wide range of applications use bulky mechanical switches or stainless steel and ceramic pressure transducers are used in robust and large – scale housings. In cases of local environmental conditions that include oil, mist and dust, also the vent must be protected from exposure to these elements. The components that sense the pressure are located on the reference side and exposing them to contamination also may lead to performance degradation. Silicon and ceramic pressure sensors are used in automotive applications .
