We recently met with Aaron, a customer working on a project in West Virginia who needed to replace pressure transmitters on water transfer pump skids.
The transmitters had been installed on the discharge line, and were outside exposed to the elements. The transmitters had plastic connectors which had a tendency to degrade over time due to the wind, rain, and sun, leading to premature failure. Without functioning pressure transmitters, the pump skids themselves would shut down and limit water transfer operations.Continue reading “Pressure Transmitters Used for Pump Skids”
A system integrator in California recently needed to monitor air flow of hydrogen and methane gas, requiring threaded connections to a steel line that the gases flowed through, as well as from the flow sensing device to the transmitter reading flow for their system controller. Hydrogen and methane are difficult gases to deal with, requiring a robust solution to monitor flow through the exhaust line without potentially posing a hazard.

What are the differences between pressure transducers and pressure transmitters?
Many readers have likely heard the terms transducer and transmitter used interchangeably without much confusion. When searching the internet for either term, search engines provide nearly identical results. Are there any differences? The short answer is “yes”.
