This wiki has been updated 14 times since it was first published in February of 2019. With so many types of industrial and commercial applications requiring pressure transmitters, the variety of options on the market can be a bit overwhelming. Since choosing the appropriate model for the job is extremely important, both in terms of effectiveness as well as safety, we've curated this list of high-quality choices to make sure you find the one that best fits your needs.

Editor's Notes

June 07, 2019:

A pressure transmitter is a device that measures the pressure and level of industrial gases and liquids. Essentially, it converts physical pressure into an analog electrical signal, which is then translated into an indicator display, like an LCD panel. These devices are found in a huge variety of applications from fire trucks to oil pipelines, and HVAC systems to medical devices. Technological advancements in manufacturing, combined with this large market of consumers, has resulted in manufacturers making these powerful instruments small and affordable.

When choosing a transmitter, the importance of accuracy and reliability really can't be emphasized enough. Since this device is responsible for your system consistently operating at the correct pressure (a factor that directly affects both the quality of your product, as well as the overall efficiency of your operation), it's particularly crucial that it does its job correctly. More importantly, it alerts the user when that pressure gets too high, helping to avoid potential catastrophes that would threaten the safety of employees as well as expensive equipment. Whatever size or type of operation you have, using a low-quality or incorrect type of pressure transmitter can have huge consequences. Basically, it's not something that you ever want to cut corners with in terms of reliability.

This list of selections reflects that emphasis on quality and is made up of options manufactured and sold by legitimate companies. In addition to buying a trusted brand, it's just as important that you fully understand the requirements of your application, and that you make sure that you are buying the correct size and type of transmitter. Remember to also read the manufactures instructions carefully before installation, and always install when the flow is turned off.
