Pressure Measurement Using Isolation Ring

The D81 Isolation Ring from Winters Instrument provides a solution for measuring system pressure in processes involving fluids with potential to clog or damage sensors and impulse lines. The isolation ring has a hollow elastomer that is located between two flanges. A fitting on the elastomer section allows for connection of a gauge or transmitter without disturbing the process fluid. Pressure in the piping system is mirrored by pressure within the hollow portion of the isolation ring, measured by the connected instrument. The instrument does not come in contact with the process fluid, nor are there any small diameter impulse lines to foul or clog. Applications in mining, water treatment, pulp and paper abound. Any challenging fluid is a good candidate for application consideration. Models are available up to 48" line size, with wafer, flanged, or threaded connections.

Vibration Dampening Improves Pressure Gauge Reading

Bourdon tube pressure gauges can exhibit rapidly oscillating indicators when subjected to pulsations from the measured line. The fast moving pointer on the dial face makes it impossible for an observer to obtain an accurate reading from the gauge. One solution has been to fill the case with a viscous liquid that served to dampen the vibration. While this is generally effective, it does create an additional potential maintenance burden related to the liquid.

A better solution is a dry gauge with a suitable means of dampening pointer oscillations that rivals that of liquid filled gauges. Winters Instrument, a manufacturer of industrial instrumentation on a global scale, offers a range of pressure gauges with their StabilZR™ dampened movement that provides liquid filled performance in a dry gauge.

The short video included with this post compares a standard dry gauge, liquid filled, and StabilZR™ versions. You can see the performance difference. Learn more about the StabilZR™ pressure gauges by sharing your process instrumentation challenges with application experts, combining your own process knowledge and experience with their product application expertise to develop effective solutions.

High Visibility Process Gauges Deliver Improved Readability in Low Light Conditions

Process gauges can sometimes, by necessity, be located in areas with low lighting or other conditions that do not promote easy viewing and reading of their dial face. Winters Instruments, manufacturer of a range of industrial instrumentation including dial face gauges, has released their WinBRIGHT high visibility pressure gauge dials. The new gauge dials provide either a highly reflective background color or glow in the dark option for the company's offering of pressure gauges in the 4" through 6" diameter range.

The video provides a quick overview of the new offering. Considering these gauges for installation in existing or new processes can bring better visibility to operators and technicians reading process gauges. More information is available from instrumentation specialists, with whom you should share your process measurement challenges and requirements. Combining your own experience and process knowledge with their product application expertise will yield a positive solution.
