Explosion Proof Pressure Switch YX18-F

Explosion Proof Pressure Switches are designed for pressure control within harsh applications. The wiring contacts are sealed in a solid space through a solid sealed shell to achieve explosion-proof effect.

Explosion Proof Pressure Switch YX18-F

The explosion-proof construction provides superior protection, while its compact design allows for easy integration into custom equipment or systems. This model is ideal for pressure alarm, shutdown or control within hazardous areas when limited size and process compatibility are needed.

Sino-Inst offers a variety of Pressure Switches for pressure control. If you have any questions, please contact our sales engineers.

Features of Explosion Proof Pressure Switch

  1. The operating point is stable and will not be affected by shock, vibration, temperature changes or other environmental conditions.
  2. The contact will not shake due to pressure fluctuations, and the open or closed state is clear.
  3. It is not affected by the impact of the pump and the vibration fatigue of the contact.
  4. Long life, high stability and action repeatability.

Principle of Explosion Proof Pressure Switch

The working principle of the explosion-proof pressure switch is that the micro switch action caused by pure mechanical deformation.

When the pressure increases, the different sensing pressure components (diaphragm, bellows, piston) will be deformed. They will move upward through the railing spring and other mechanical structures. The top micro switch is activated. The electrical signal is output.

The setting method is divided into continuous displacement type and force balance type from the functional principle.

According to the principle, explosion-proof pressure switches can be divided into mechanical explosion-proof pressure switches and electronic explosion-proof pressure switches. The mechanical type is divided into ordinary and sealed types.
