The 1/2″ PTFE Pressure Transmitter with gas thread and a 4/20 mA output, class 0.5, and a range of 0 to 25 bar, is ideal for measuring pressure in highly corrosive fluids that cannot be handled by materials like AISI 316 stainless steel. This type of transmitter is primarily used in chemical and refining processes, where it is crucial to have a durable and reliable tool to ensure accurate and safe measurements.
What is a pressure transmitter?
A pressure transmitter is a device that converts pressure into an electrical signal, which can be used to measure and control processes in various industries. These devices are undeniably essential for ensuring the proper functioning of systems and industrial processes.
The importance of PTFE in pressure transmitters
Teflon is a material composed of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), known for its chemical, thermal, and mechanical resistance. Its use in pressure transmitters is, above all, crucial for ensuring optimal and safe operation in extreme or highly demanding conditions.
Features and advantages of PTFE in pressure transmitters
Indeed, one of the main advantages of Teflon is its chemical resistance. This means it can withstand most chemicals without corroding, making it ideal for use in environments where aggressive or corrosive chemicals are handled.
PTFE is also known for withstanding extreme temperatures with great efficiency. This makes it an ideal material for pressure transmitters that need to operate in high-temperature environments, such as in extreme heating processes.
Flexibility and durability of PTFE pressure transmitter
Additionally, Teflon is a flexible and durable material, meaning it can withstand vibrations, shocks, and mechanical stresses without damage. This characteristic makes it perfect for use in pressure transmitters, as it ensures reliable and long-lasting operation.
