STS Elastomer-free transducer
Automated Control Engineering (A.C.E.) and STS introduce a new pressure transducer that is free of elastomers. For applications in which O-rings are either undesirable or impermissible, a measuring cell with a fully welded process connection is now available.
As the standard welded version is designed only for pressures up to a maximum of 250 bar, STS has developed a new elastomer-free version that incorporates a metal to metal seal that is capable of withstanding higher pressure ranges.
Dictated by the required pressure range and the sensor’s compatibility to various media, the new elastomer-free transducer is manufactured from a range of high grade materials. Stainless steel (1.4435 / 316L) continues to be used for pressure ranges spanning 25 to 1,000 bar, while for applications exceeding 1,000 bar, super duplex steel (1.4501) is used in the construction of both the transducer housing and process connection. For further chemical compatibility, the transducer and process connection can also be manufactured from Inconel.
The new metallically sealed transducer is suitable for a configurations covered within the TM, ATM and PTM product groups.
