Matching up the most appropriate control device for a processing application, taking all factors into account, may not always result in a selection of the most technologically advanced, complex or full featured solution. Sometimes, all that is needed is a device with a limited performance set, but one that performs its functions reliably in a challenging industrial environment.

Industrial versions of temperature, pressure and differential pressure switches are fitted with appropriate mountings for the process and housings for the installation environment. Hazardous location installation can be accommodated. High current switch ratings and auxiliary functions add to the usefulness of these devices. There are almost countless variants available to accommodate almost every application. Don’t overlook these simple and reliable mechanical devices as candidates for application in temperature and pressure control. Share your application requirements and challenges with product specialists for useful recommendations.

Industrial process control applications, by their very scale and nature in financial, operational, and safety terms, call for rugged and well performing devices and equipment. In the area of temperature and pressure related control, switches are often employed to achieve or respond to an enormous range of possible conditions.

Temperature and pressure switch reliability is especially critical in applications located within hazardous zones or locations. Custom Control Sensors (CCS) manufactures pressure and temperature switches for the most demanding applications in hazardous environments.

Products are designed to provide high cycle life through the use of a Belleville spring to reduce mechanical wear on the switch element. The switches have no moving parts, other than the actuating mechanism which has a limited movement of 0.01 inch.


CCS products for hazardous locations are routine deployed on

  • Oil Platforms
  • Pump Control
  • Refineries
  • Control and Annunciator Panels
  • Relay Alarm Systems
  • Pipelines
  • Gas/Steam Turbines
  • Oil Filtration

Included below is a short form catalog illustrating the CCS line of pressure and temperature switches for hazardous and non-hazardous locations. In addition to the suitability of the industrial switches for use in hazardous areas, CCS temperature and pressure switches exhibit these main features:

  • High Cycle Life
  • Wide Range of Set Points
  • Protection Against Environment
  • High Over-Pressure Capability
  • No calibration needed
  • Maintenance free
  • High vibration resistance
Consider your temperature and pressure related applications and share your challenges with a product application specialist for the best solutions.

NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) — Nonprofit technical association that develops and maintains standards that deal exclusively with protection and performance of materials in corrosive environments. The membership represents a cross–section of industry concerned with corrosion prevention and control.

NEC (National Electrical Code) — The American national standard that contains provisions considered necessary for safeguarding persons and property from hazards arising from the use of electricity. Generally, the code covers electric conductors and equipment installed within or on public and private buildings or other structures.

NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) — A voluntary organization that adopts standards for electrical equipment. NEMA standards are designed to eliminate misunderstandings between the manufacturer and the purchaser and to assist the purchaser in selecting and obtaining the proper product for a particular need.

Pressure and Temperature Switches Glossary - Important Terms to Know Part 1

The following two part series, courtesy of CCS Dualsnap (Custom Control Sensors) provides some very important terms to know when applying or purchasing industrial pressure switches and temperature switches.

ACCURACY (REPEATABILITY) — Accuracy is the maximum operational set point deviation of a single sensor (a pressure, temperature, or flow switch) under one given set of environmental and operational conditions. CCS Repeatability is within +/- 1% of set point.

ACTUATION AND DEACTUATION POINT — The actuation point (sometimes called the set point) is the exact point at which the electrical circuit controlled by
the switching element is opened (or closed) on increasing pressure or temperature. The deactuation point is the opposite, or the point at which the electrical circuit is closed (or opened) on decreasing pressure or temperature.

Electromechanical Pressure, Differential Pressure and Temperature Switches - The Basics

Pressure
Switch
(CCS)
Most industrial applications require the monitoring of pressure and temperature of a process. Pressure and temperature measurement can be accomplished either by transmitters, gauges or by switches. This post will provide a quick introduction of industrial electromechanical pressure switches and temperature switches.

An industrial pressure and temperature switch is made up of the three main components: 1) the sensor, 2) the housing and 3) the switching element.

The correct combination of each component assures proper application of the device for its intended use.
