Steps In Choosing A Sanitary Pressure Gauge

In a variety of different industries including food and beverage production, bio-medical companies and in pharmaceutical production, specialized equipment that meets industry regulations for manufacturing and materials are mandatory for use.

This includes all devices used on and in the system, including different options in sanitary pressure gauge models and types. There are several manufacturers producing a range of these gauges. Finding the right one for your needs starts with considering the requirements specific to the production line.

Environmental and Use Conditions

While most of the sanitary pressure gauge options on the market will handle the full range of possible pressure levels and environmental conditions, it is important to ensure the correct type and size of the valve is selected.

Some of these gauges will have specific resistance to common issues such as high humidity environments or areas where there may be a considerable vibration that may not be suitable for specific gauge designs and options. The temperature will also be a factor to consider.

Mounting options will need to be a factor. Different gauges may offer a range of mounting configurations including the bottom, back, right, left and top mounting options. Other gauges may be more restrictive in the mounting possibilities.

Digital or Dial

Standard dial or analog types of sanitary pressure gauge designs are very common and offer an easy read option to quickly assess the correct pressure through the system. These can have different dial sizes based on the location of the specific gauge installation or other factors.

Digital gauges offer precision in the measurement of the pressure and typically have a higher capacity for over-range pressures. These combinations of the pressure gauge and switching systems can also have alarms and control options, which adds versatility to the component where highly sensitive and exacting processes must be followed.
