Differential pressure measurement
Continuous level, flow and differential pressure measurement
Differential pressure transmitters with piezoresistive pressure sensors and welded metallic membrane or electronic dp or diaphragm seal is used mostly in the process industry. Deltabar offers continuous level measurement in liquids as well as volume or mass flow measurement. It is also possible to do filter monitoring with the differential pressure transmitter.

Beside the pressure devices with silicon or diaphragm seal for level measurement Deltabar electronic dp is a differential pressure system combining two sensor modules and one transmitter. In level applications, the high pressure sensor (HP) measures the hydrostatic pressure. The low pressure sensor (LP) measures the head pressure. The level or differential pressure is calculated in the transmitter using these two digital values.
Differential pressure measurement: Measuring Principle
Silicon cell: The operating pressure deflects the process isolating diaphragm and a fill fluid transfers the pressure to a resistance bridge (semiconductor technology). The pressure-dependent change in the bridge output voltage is measured and evaluated.
Diaphragm seal: The operating pressure acts on the process isolating diaphragm of the diaphragm seal and is transferred to the process isolating diaphragm of the sensor by a fill fluid.
With silicon cell for process pressures up to 700bar (10,500psi)
Small flush-mount process connections and guaranteed overload resistance silicon cell
With diaphragm seal process temperatures from -70 up to +400°C (-94 to +752°F)
The electronic differential pressure system eliminates traditional mechanical issues resulting in greater process availability and reliability. Also safety risks are minimized with the electronic dp system architecture and design
