The degree of success of any process control system is directly proportional to how accurately and timely process parameters can be measured and utilized by the control algorithms. This is especially true in processes that rely on critical pressure readings, such as water treatment and chemical production; where sensors are required to measure the pressure across a filter or orifice plate, or the level in a pressurized vessel.
Accutech offers three pressure-sensing field units designed for use in a variety of industrial applications.
The GP10 gauge pressure field unit provides static pressure data in a variety of ranges from 5 to 10000 psig and is ideally suited as a detector for any pressure-triggered event that requires attention, such as a pipe leak or pump fault. The AP10 absolute pressure field unit offers absolute pressure measurement in the 30 and 250 psia (2 and 17 bar) ranges. Both the GP10 and AP10 have remote pressure sensor options.
For installations requiring a pressure differential reading, the DP20 differential pressure field unit provides data in a variety of ranges from +/-100 inches and +/- 300 inches water, and 300 psi. The product also accommodates static pressures up to 2000 psi. The differential pressure field unit may be operated in one of four modes: Differential Pressure, Orifice Flow, Open Channel Flow and Level, and may be configured with a 22-point custom curve feature.
