This webinar will discuss the issues associated with liquid-filled gauges and how a new solution overcomes them.
One of the initial challenges in monitoring pressure with dry gauges was caused by applications with vibration and pulsation. It was difficult to measure pressure in these types of applications as the pressure gauge pointer would flutter, making it impossible to get an accurate reading.
Liquid-filling pressure gauges became the common method for steadying the pointer of a gauge in vibrating and pulsating applications. By filling the gauge case with a liquid, the movement of the gauge was dampened preventing the pointer from shaking. Liquid-filling has been the primary way of dealing with vibration until now.
While adding liquid to a gauge allows operators to accurately monitor the pressure of a process, it has limitations on where it can be installed compared to a dry gauge. In addition, liquid-filled gauges have several drawbacks that can introduce unnecessary elements of risk to a work environment.
The challenges associated with liquid-filled gauges can now be overcome with a new product solution that can be applied in applications with vibration and pulsation without the limitations.
Winters' StabiliZR™ pressure gauges are dry gauges that can be installed in applications where liquid-filled gauges have traditionally been installed. The reason for StabiliZR's effectiveness where other dry gauges fail is the StabiliZR movement, which provides pointer dampening without requiring the entire case to be filled with liquid.
