The Diaphragm pressure gauge type MPE is used to measure gases and liquids.
The MPE diaphragm pressure gauge application spans from 10 mbar to 60 bar.
The measuring element consists of one circular diaphragm,
clamped between a pair of flanges.
The positive or negative pressure,
acting on these diaphragms causes deformation of the measuring element.
The magnitude of the deformation is proportional to the pressure to be measured,
and it is coupled to the pointer mechanism.

Diaphragm pressure gauge working principle
A diaphragm pressure gauge is a device,
that uses a diaphragm with a known pressure to measure pressure in a fluid.
It has many different uses,
such as monitoring the pressure of a canister of gas, measuring atmospheric pressure,
or recording the strength of the vacuum in a vacuum pump.
The diaphragm pressure gauge consists of a circular membrane,
made from sheet metal of precise dimensions, which can either be flat or corrugated.
The diaphragm is mechanically connected to the transmission mechanism,
which will amplify the small deflections of the diaphragm,
and transfer them to the pointer.
The animation below shows the pressure gauge working principle.
You can see the movement of the diaphragm and the functioning of the transmission mechanism.
The process pressure is applied to the lower side of the diaphragm,
while the upper side is at atmospheric pressure.
The differential pressure arising across the diaphragm
lifts up the diaphragm and puts the pointer in motion.
The deflection of the diaphragm is very small (+/- 1 mm),
making it necessary to use a high-ratio multiplying movement,
to rotate the pointer along the full length of the scale.
The actuation of such a high-ratio transmission mechanism is possible,
because diaphragm deflection is able to generate large forces.
Applications of the diaphragm pressure gauge
Pressure gauges with horizontal diaphragm
allow to find suitable versions for even difficult kinds of media,
such as aggressive, contaminated or viscous media.
The stainless steel bayonet ring case is designed for applications,
where a rust-resistant,
sealed case of high chemical resistance is required
(dirty damp, or corrosive atmosphere).
- For measuring points with increased overload
- With liquid-filled case suitability for high dynamic pressure loads and vibrations (model 433.50)
- For gaseous, liquid and aggressive media, also in aggressive environments
- With the open connecting flange option also for contaminated and viscous media
- Process industry:
- Chemical, petrochemical, power plants, mining,
- on-/offshore, environmental technology,
- machine building and general plant construction
