Regardless of the type of application or system, pressure gauges are essential for both safe operation as well as system control. With automatic systems, the precision of the pressure gauges is critical for rapid responses through the automated controls to keep the system in safe operational levels.
Choosing the best sanitary pressure gauge is always important. Not only is it crucial to have an approved gauge for sanitary processes and applications, but the type of gauge and the specific ratings for the gauge have to carefully weigh when making a decision between different options.
The System Environment
All types of gauges, including sanitary pressure gauge, are rated for use in specific environments. This includes both the actual media in the system as well as the external environment conditions.
Pressure gauges should be considered that are designed for the specific type of applications. This includes the temperature, the vibration in the and even exposure to possible corrosive materials.
Mounting the Gauge
Where the gauge needs to be mounted in the system is another factor to consider. Different gauges are designed to offer different connections and fittings, and these are also related to how the gauge is positioned and installed.
Pressure and Accuracy
With a sanitary pressure gauge, the pressure range the gauge is rated for is an important factor that needs to be carefully reviewed and confirmed before installing any gauge. The pressure needs to the measured from the highest possible pressure, or pressure spike, as well as for the low pressure levels in the system.
The accuracy of the pressure gauge should meet all required standards. In most types of applications, ANSI/ASME standards are used to report the accuracy of the gauge. For high pressure applications or system critical types of requirements, high levels of accuracy are required.
