Bailey & Mackey’s range of Pressure Transducers is built to the highest standards of workmanship required for such precision devices. Each individual transducer is subject to a series of stringent pressure and calibration tests before despatch.

The maximum pressure range
that we manufacture to is
0 ‑ 250 bar (0 ‑ 3626 psi)

TRANSDUCER INSTALLATION & USE

Follow these guidelines for safe use at all times

A Pressure Transducer correctly installed and to the correct specification gives an electrical output proportional to the pressure in the system which helps to ensure the safe working of process plant and machinery.

a) Before fitting the pressure transducer to a pressure source check that the range (full scale) of the device is the same or higher than the pressure to be applied.

b) Before fitting the pressure transducer to a pressure source check that the wetted parts are compatible with the fluid being used, and that the pressure connection correctly matches that of the pipework.

c) When fitting the pressure transducer to pipework use correct sealing methods. Do not use the transducer body to tighten the pressure transducer to the pipework, use correct spanners on the hexagon base.

d) Do not use pressure transducers on Oxygen or Acetylene unless approved by our Technical Department.

e) Ambient and process temperature acting on the

transducer should be within catalogue values. The unit should be protected from higher fluid temperatures by means of a syphon tube filled with condensate before use. The fluid in the pressure chamber should not be allowed to freeze or crystallise as this will lead to rupture of the sensing element.

f) Differential pressure transducers should not be used with more than the range of the transducer applied to one side unless approved by our Technical Department. Line pressure must not exceed the line pressure stated on the pressure transducers label. The higher of the two pressures must be connected to the port marked high and the lower of the two pressures must be connected to the port marked low.

g) Ensure that the pressure transducer is connected electrically in accordance with the installation instructions supplied with the unit. Incorrect connection can damage the pressure transducer beyond repair.

If in doubt concerning the application of any pressure transducer please contactour Technical Department who will be only too pleased to give you advice.
