A stainless-steel differential pressure switch uses a single set of process connections and eliminates the need for a separate differential pressure gauge, limit switch, and transmitter. The One Series Differential Pressure switch continuously monitors the status of its own health and reports it locally and remotely. The component permits adjustable set point and deadband, and offers an optional 4-20 mA analog signal for remote process trending.

Air pumps incorporate curved baffling chambers that reduce noise levels to less than 30 db at 3 ft. Larger models will pump to a depth of 6 ft and also feature a built-in needle valve control for precise adjustment of air flow. This line comes in a gray color and is available in flow rates of 50 to 400 (liter)/hr. Special expansion chambers absorb vibrations at the valve-block outlets.

Brazed-plate heat exchangers produce thermal efficiency while withstanding high pressures and temperatures. A special brazing process bonds together 316 stainless-steel plates, which feature a corrugated design for maximum turbulation and heat transfer in a small surface area. No bulky pressure-retaining parts are needed. The brazing process also eliminates the need for gasketed or rolled joints.
