Mechanical Pressure Gages in the CPI

By Silvia Weber |

In today’s digital age, there is still a need for mechanical pressure measuring instruments for safety, efficiency and economical advantages. Selecting the right type is described here Whether at work or at home, more and more areas of life are, or will become, digital. Nevertheless, the manufacturers of mechanical pressure-measuring instruments continue to see rising sales of their gages. Customers in the chemical process industries (CPI) immediately mention two reasons for this continuing strong demand: the safety and efficiency of these instruments. Pressure gages always provide a reliable measurement result that can be read at a glance, with no external power. Even if the power supply fails, they continue to fulfil their measuring task and display the value locally. The continued and widespread use of mechanical pressure-measuring instruments also has an economic basis. Mechatronic and electronic solutions require a higher investment. However, not all employees work in the control room or have a laptop in front of them in order to monitor the measurement processes. In most cases, the service and maintenance personnel are found within the plant and can thus read the pressure directly on site. WIKA[/caption] Types of gages The…
