Magnehelic® Differential Pressure Gage Minor Divisions Update
Over the years, Dwyer Instruments, Inc. has continuously improved its position as a global leader in designing and manufacturing innovative controls, sensors and instrumentation solutions. This success is due in part to our invention of the Magnehelic® differential pressure gage in 1953. Since then, the market leading Magnehelic® differential pressure gage has been continuously updated and improved. The Magnehelic® gage is a versatile low differential pressure gage which quickly indicates air or noncorrosive gas pressures – either positive, negative (vacuum) or differential. Over the years, among countless other updates, we’ve invented a high accuracy version of the Magnehelic® gage which provides an accuracy within 1% of full scale and created backwards compatible products.

Rotary Paddle Level Switches Re-Invented
The Proximity Controls Division of Dwyer Instruments, Inc. specializes in both bulk level monitoring and valve position indication. Rarely do these two sides of the business intersect. That is until the engineers at Proximity Controls came across a challenge to improve an industry standard level sensing technology. Continue reading “Rotary Paddle Level Switches Re-Invented”
Market Shifts & the Need for Backward Compatible Products
Technology markets shift. The shift can be incremental, radical, or sometimes disruptive.
Take, for instance, gages used in process automation markets. Gages command about $3.5 billion in global instrument sales, the major portion, over $11 billion now held by transmitters.
The technological shift from a visual indication gage to the first transmitter has been incremental. It has taken over 50 years for transmitters to go from concept to commanding 70% market share. Continue reading “Market Shifts & the Need for Backward Compatible Products”
How to Maintain Your Dust Collector
The inception of the dust collector has allowed companies to effectively capture airborne particulate from an air stream. This has become more important for several reasons. First, containing particulate — toxic or not — is necessary to provide a healthy and clean work environment. Second, increasing local and global awareness of air pollution, containment and the process dust in industrial applications has emphasized the importance of dust collectors. Finally, expanding regulations have pressured companies to properly design, install, operate and maintain dust collection equipment. Continue reading “How to Maintain Your Dust Collector”
