Ability to meet any challenge
The chemical industry makes extremely high demands on all instruments used within the process. They are subject to strict international guidelines like the PED and ATEX. Electronic and mechanical measuring instruments for pressure and temperature are used for general applications as well as in potentially explosive areas, and must operate as satisfactorily in aggressive environments as in nonaggressive environments. In order to ensure long-term process safety under these difficult circumstances, a regular calibration of the measuring instruments is recommended.
The standard material used in chemical process engineering is predominantly stainless steel, with the widest-used of these being material no. 316L and 1.4404/1.4435. For high-pressure measurement, high-strength stainless steel is used, while for pressure measurements at elevated temperatures, temperature resistant stainless steel is needed. For chemical processes involving highly-aggressive media, – in combination with diaphragm seals / gauges with diaphragm for capsule for pressure measurement, or thermowells for temperature measurement - an extensive range of chemically-resistant materials is available. In these cases, all wetted parts are manufactured from the respective special material.
