Pressure sensors are extensively employed in numerous industrial automated control settings, such as water conservation and hydropower, railway transportation, intelligent buildings, production automation, aerospace, petrochemicals, oil wells, power generation, ships, machine tools, and pipelines. This article will provide a concise overview of the applications of specific frequently utilized pressure sensors.  

Basic Knowledge of Pressure Sensors Applications

Pressure Sensors Applied in the Oil & Gas Industry

The three key primary requirements for pressure sensors are reliability, stability, and high precision in the oil & gas sector.

The reliability depends on the pressure transmitter's structural design, mechanical processing technology, and materials. The stability and high accuracy are mainly guaranteed by the stability and measurement accuracy of the pressure sensor element. The sensor element's static pressure characteristics and long-term stability influence the pressure transmitter's stability. The demand for pressure sensors in the oil & gas industry revolves around four main aspects: measuring accuracy, fast response, static pressure characteristics, and long-term stability.

Pressure Sensors Applied in Water Treatment

Pressure Sensors Applied in water treatment

Pressure sensors facilitate critical control and monitoring functions in the water treatment and environmental protection industry, ensuring system protection and maintaining optimal water quality. By converting pressure (typically the pressure of liquids or gases) into electrical signals, pressure sensors serve multiple purposes, including measuring static fluid levels and providing accurate liquid level measurements. Incorporating these sensors contributes significantly to effectively managing water supply and sewage treatment processes, enabling enhanced system efficiency and quality assurance.
