Compact flush diaphragm pressure transducer takes the pressure

As part of its GP:50 range of pressure sensors and transmitters for hazardous and harsh environments, Interface Force has announced the Model 188 miniature flush diaphragm pressure transducer. This sensor has been developed to fit into restricted spaces, but is said to offer pressure measurements up to 10,000psi with accuracy to ±0.05%FS.

The Model 188 has been constructed as a single all-welded piece in high performance, rugged stainless steel. Its flush port design eliminates any dead volume suiting it for high viscosity fluid pressure measurements without any port clogging or plugging. This transducer is ideal for use in the oil and gas industry as well as more diverse applications such as paint and adhesives dispensing, food processing and sludge and slurry pressure measurement.

The transducer is supplied with a NIST traceable calibration certificate and has also been rated for high shock and vibration applications.A number of field options are available including extending the operating temperature range from -54 to 177°C.
