Diaphragm Seal or Chemical Seal Application

Diaphragm seals, also referred to as chemical seals, are used to isolate pressure gauges, switches, and transmitters from clogging and/or corrosive media. Standard diaphragm seal bodies and diaphragms are made of stainless steel; however, a variety of materials from carbon steel to Hastelloy® C-276 are available to meet the demands of most applications. WIKA diaphragm seals can operate in pressure

Diaphragm Seal & Chemical Seal Operating Principle

The drawing below illustrates the operating principle of a diaphragm seal assembly. A pressure measurementinstrument such as a conventional pressure gauge or electronic pressure transmitter is either mounted directly to the diaphragm seal or attached to the seal by means of a capillary or cooling element. A diaphragm within the diaphragm seal separates the gauge / transmitter from the process medium.

Select a Diaphragm Seal or Chemical Seal

Selection Guidelines When selecting a diaphragm seal assembly, the following details must be taken into consideration to ensure a safe and satisfactory operation. For specific technical assistance regarding temperature effects, volumetric compatibility, etc., contact the Forberg Scientific customer service department or send a completed diaphragm seal specification sheet to the factory for analysis.

Direct Drive Gauges Wika New Direct Drive Process Gauge & Direct Drive Test Gauge

Direct Drive Technology: “Battle Proven” Performance in a Process Gauge The military has used direct drive gauges on aircrafts, tanks and submarines since the 1960s for one simple reason: they are extremely resistant to shock, vibration and pulsation. Direct drive gauges have been known to survive direct missile strikes when placed within the hulls of battleships during military testing. Over

Protect you refrigerated air dryer with proper filtration

Author: David J. Connaughton Blog: Compressed Air the Fourth Utility Refrigerated dryers rely on HCFC (Hydrochlorofluorocarbons) to cool compressed air and therefore lower the dewpoint of the compressed air. In a new system, the cooling is quite efficient and dewpoints of as low as 35F (2C) can be achieved with a refrigerated dryer. Over time, the cooling coils lose their

How to drain liquids at high pressure

Author: David Connaughton Blog: Compressed Air The Fourth Utility Occasionally customers have high pressure compressed air or natural gas lines that need to be filtered to remove oil and water contamination. The problem is, how do you drain out the accumulated liquids? Most automatic drains have a maximum pressure of 150 psig (10 bar), well below the pressure of the

Active & passive temperature compensation of pressure sensors

Author: Dominik Lorenz Posted: Knowledge How does an active or passive temperature compensation of pressure transmitters actually work? High-quality pressure transmitters, especially those used in precision critical applications, are almost always provided with an individual temperature compensation. But what is actually the difference between an active and a passive temperature compensation of these sensors? Passive temperature compensation: Sections of the
