High Temperature Dynamic Pressure Sensors
PCB® high temperature dynamic pressure sensors can be structured with a quartz element or a UHT-12™ element.
Quartz sensors operate, without cooling, up to +750 °F (+399 °C) on compressors and pumps. Special mounting adaptors can be supplied to fit existing mounting holes. Water cooled adaptors are available to provide a lower temperature thermally stable environment that allow sensors to operate in applications above their normal operating range.
UHT-12™ sensors operate without cooling up to +1400 ºF (+760 ºC) on turbines.
Hard-line cables are recommended for operating temperatures above +500 °F (+260 °C). The cable can be welded to the sensor for operation in pressurized environments. All of these features ensure reliable operation in high temperature environments.
