Ideally, a pressure transmitter is installed with the sensing element as close to the process as possible. Short impulse lines allow for the fastest dynamic response. But many industrial processes run at elevated temperatures and heat transfer by radiant, conductive or ambient paths can damage a transmitter’s wetted materials or, more commonly, shorten the life of its electronic components. So, when process temperatures climb above 220°F, it’s time to consider protective solutions that increase transmitter life and preserve process uptime without sacrificing responsiveness. To learn about the range of solutions designed to facilitate safe and accurate pressure measurement at high temperatures, Control sat down with Doug Greaves, U.S. product manager, temperature and pressure, ABB Measurement & Analytics.
