Pressure Transducer

Pressure Transducer

Pressure Transducer

I am looking for a pressure tranducer to measure fluid pressure thru a nozzle. It is used as part of a viscometer measurement. The orientation of the nozzle is such that the operating pressure is between -1 PSIG to +2 PSIG. We are currently using a 0 - 15PSIG (4-20ma) pressure transducer however I am looking for something that has a smaller range and will handle vacuum as well. We can not( rather not)redesign the Nozzle diameter because of flow requirements and pumping pressure constraints. I am looking for a range in the area of -5mmHg to 5PSIG.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

RE: Pressure Transducer

Thanks for the link, it's interesting that the UK website have more transducers listed than the US website. I often find this to be true of several overseas suppliers.

RE: Pressure Transducer

HYDAC Technology has a transducer rated in the -1 to 1 bar range. Visit their website at www.hydacusa.com and submit your request to their technical support. Most of their sensors are built with stainless steel and provide long lasting sensors in the 100 million plus cycle range. They also provide great protection from EMC and pressure spikes. Works in pneumatic, hydraulic, chemical and water applications.
