The Model DP86 wet-wet differential pressure sensor is a double-sided stainless steel isolated piezoresistive silicon device. With seven differential pressure ranges available, it’s capable of reducing measurement error in fluid flow for both low-pressure gas and corrosive liquid measurement. It’s said that the advantage of using a differential pressure sensor instead of two-gage sensors for measuring fluid flow is the fact that a much higher sensitivity transducer can be used without risking overpressure damage. By using a differential pressure sensor, differential pressure accuracy is independent of the total system pressure. A differential pressure sensor can also be used as a gage sensor where the reference pressure media may be humid, condensing, or corrosive.
