 Top 5+ things you should know about differential pressure gauge

  Differential pressure control is strictly required in any cleanrooms. To monitor the differential pressure, differential pressure gauge is used. This article will provide the top 5+ things about differential pressure gauges you should know. Let's find out!

1. What is differential pressure gauge? 

A differential pressure gauge (or a differential pressure transmitter) is a device used to measure the difference in air pressure between two points within a system. 

Maintaining the right amount of differential pressure in cleanrooms is critical for preventing contamination. That's a reason why differential pressure gauges are commonly used in cleanrooms.

2. Applications

Differential pressure gauges Series 2000 are widely used to measure the pressure of fan and blower, air velocity, pressure drops across orifice plates, liquid levels with bubbler systems, and pressures in fluid amplifier or fluidic systems. 

This differential pressure gauge is commonly used in chemical processing, oil refineries, gas liquefication, power plants, pharmaceutical manufacturing, food production, and industrial processes. It assists in flow measurement and filter monitoring.

3. Differential pressure gauge structure

A differential pressure gauge is comprised of: 

  • Sensing element
  • Drive bar
  • Magnet
  • Pointer
  • High-pressure port
  • Low-pressure port
  • Bezel with magnets

4. Differential pressure gauge working principle 

Differential pressure gauge have two ports that are connected to the two pressure sources.

When connected to the pressure sources, the gauge will monitor the difference in the pressure between them, when the pressure reaches a set point the switch will either make or break a circuit as the internal diaphragm deflects under pressure making contact. This will trigger the helix. The helix turns the needle on the gauge to indicate the pressure.

5. Differential pressure transmitter specification
