AutomationDirect (Cumming, GA) has added new pressure sensing accessories from Winters. These accessories will protect delicate pressure measurement equipment from damage caused by pressure surges, superheated media and more. Additionally:
- Included in the new product release are siphons that protect pressure gauges, transmitters and switches from the effects of high-temperature media such as steam.
- New pressure snubbers protect instruments by suppressing pressure pulsations and spikes.
- Added manual isolation and throttling needle valves isolate instruments from the sensed media, while block and bleed valves isolate instruments with the added ability to bleed off unwanted pressure.
- Both valves also allow for quick and easy removal and maintenance of measurement instruments without shutting down the process.
