Pressure sensors are used for control and monitoring in thousands of everyday applications. Pressure sensors can also be used to indirectly measure other variables such as fluid/gas flow, speed, water level, and altitude
Why use Pressure Sensors
Pressure sensors can be used to sense the reduction in pressure or change in pressure due to a leak. In the event of a change in pressure, managers can be notified or systems can be automatically shit down to prevent damage to components.
Certain manufacturing environments require specific pressures to be maintained. As such, having pressure sensors can notify management to adjust their plant or automatically shut down so as to reduce harmful effects on equipment.
When non-combustible gas is stored in a tank, a pressure transducer can be used to measure the pressure and how that pressure might be affected by environmental factors like heat from the sun or cold temperatures. If measuring a combustible gas, you will need to use a transducer built with an explosive-proof housing or a hazardous pressure transducer that is certified safe to use with explosive gases.
A pressure sensor based at the bottom of a tank can indicate the water pressure above it and thus the volume of liquid in the tank
A pressure sensor will give real time information as to the performance of a pump to make sure that it is working according to the mandatory requirements.
