Gauge pressure transmitter working principle
What is gauge pressure?
Gauge pressure, also known as ‘relative pressure’ or ‘vented gauge pressure’,
is the measurement of pressure relative to the current atmospheric or barometric pressure.
A gauge pressure sensor has the back of the sensing element open (or ‘vented’),
to provide a reference to atmospheric pressure.

What is the principle of a gauge pressure transmitter?
A gauge pressure (GP) transmitter compares a process pressure against local ambient air pressure.
Gauge pressure transmitters have ports to sample the ambient air pressure in real-time.
Today’s highly accurate gauge pressure transmitters can be affected by fluctuations in the local ambient pressure.
Measurements above the ambient air pressure are represented as a positive number,
while a negative number represents measurements below ambient.
A gauge pressure measurement is indicated by the letter ‘g’,
following the unit of measure of the reading (i.e., inH₂O(g) or psig).
Application of gauge pressure transducer:
gases or vapors and then converted to a 4-20 mA DC signal output.
The SI1151/3051/3351GP intelligent pressure transmitter
can communicate with the HART Communicator to set,
monitor or form an on-site monitoring system with the host computer.
Example Industrial Applications:
Open tank level, Line pressure, and Blanket pressure in a tank.
Sino-Instrument Gauge Pressure Transmitters,
made in China,
are high-performance cost-effective devices,
used where long term accuracy and reliability is a priority.
Designed for Harsh Environments:
Sino-Instrument pressure transmitters use a silicon micro-capacitance cell,
proven on hundreds of difficult applications.
They are installed in harsh environments on oil pipelines,
power stations, gas compressor stations,
water treatment plants and steel plants.
They are equally suited to applications in chemical,
biochemical, food, beverage and water treatment processes.
They have European, American, Russian and Chinese approvals.
Field repair is possible using only one amplifier for all pressure transmitter types.
Applications in HVAC, water treatment, food,
paper, pharmaceutical, chemical, petrochemical, offshore,
sub-sea and nuclear industries,
can be satisfied with this range of transmitters.
Standard transmitters are held in our UK facility for next day delivery.
By selecting from a large range of materials,
we are able to customize the transmitter and supply remote seals.
We temperature compensate for the whole assembly to maintain the highest level of performance.
Selecting from 316SS, Hastelloy, Monel, Tantalum, Gold, and Ceramic.
We can custom build a transmitter to our own high standards,
or to your individual specifications.
To provide high flexibility, remote seals can be fitted to any of the SI series of transmitters.
