Last September, we wrote about the different types of pressure and how each type is referenced. This post discussed atmospheric (barometric), absolute, gage, vacuum, differential, and hydrostatic pressure. For a refresher on these pressure types, click here. This post will expand on last September’s post by listing some more key pressure measurements and explaining their importance. Continue reading “Select Key Pressure Measurements and Their Importance”
Many Dwyer Instruments, Inc. products sense and measure pressure. This includes: gages, manometers, transmitters and switches.
Pressure is the amount of force acting on a specific area and is equal to the force divided by the area.
There are many types of pressure that are used and measured, including: atmospheric, absolute, gage, vacuum, differential and hydrostatic. Continue reading “What is Pressure and How is it Referenced?”
Question: I am trying to measure building pressure relative to outside air pressure. However, in doing so, I am seeing fluctuations in the differential pressure readings. Is there any way to minimize or eliminate these fluctuations? Continue reading “Ask the Expert – Issues with Referencing Outside Air Pressure”
