Learn about pressure sensors:
Pressure sensor is a type of sensor device used to measure pressure, pressure in tanks or pipelines for gas, steam, or liquid. The job of this sensor is to monitor pressure or pressure and transmit that information to the display or controller in the form of a 4-20mA signal.
There is also a type of sensor designed to measure in dynamic mode to record very high rate changes of pressure. Example applications for this type of sensor are combustion pressure measurement in engine cylinders or in gas turbines & internal combustion engines. These sensors are typically manufactured from piezoelectric materials such as quartz.
Pressure sensors include the following types: relative pressure sensor, absolute pressure sensor and differential pressure sensor.
What parameters should I pay attention to when buying a pressure sensor?
Like other high-tech products, pressure sensors also have specifications that require special attention when purchasing and replacing. So if you are looking to buy a pressure sensor, pay attention to the following parameters.
– Purpose of using pressure sensor
– Detailed specifications of the sensor to be used
– Output signal of the pressure sensor (normally 4-20mA)
– Working environment of pressure sensor
– Permissible error of the pressure sensor to be measured
– Response time
– Can the parameters on the sensor be adjusted?
– Connection type of sensor
– Power supply
So what are the applications of pressure sensors in life?
Pressure sensors have a wide range of industrial applications. These can be mentioned as: Measuring water pressure, Measuring pneumatic pressure, Used to measure hydraulic pressure, Used to measure gas pressure and Measure pressure of other liquids…
Pressure sensor used to measure in the boiler system, usually measured directly on the boiler. This area needs quite high precision measurement & is subject to high temperature.
The air compressors also need to measure the pressure to limit the output pressure, avoiding the case of overpressure leading to damage and fire.
To pressurize or control the pressure after the control valve, the pressure sensor plays a very important role because it will directly affect the outlet pressure after the control valve.
On crane trucks, there are often hydraulic berths, the requirement to monitor these hydraulic berths is very important because it will affect the traction force of the dump truck. So they always install pressure sensors to monitor the pressure on these hydraulic cylinders.
Tanks containing water or materials often use pressure sensors to measure the level of these tanks.
