Steam pressure transmitters are widely used in the measurement and control of various high-temperature steam piping systems. The monitoring of steam pipes is very important. To measure the pressure of steam pipes, have you encountered the following problems:
- Don’t know which pressure transmitter to choose?
- Is it good to use a high-temperature pressure transmitter to measure the pressure of the steam pipe?
- The core of the pressure transmitter removed at the steam site. The diaphragm has been dented by the impact. Is it scrapped directly?
- How to choose the type and what should be paid attention to when measuring the steam pipeline?

Steam pressure transmitter installation
- When wiring, pass the cable through the waterproof connector (accessory) or flexible tube and tighten the sealing nut to prevent rainwater from leaking into the transmitter housing through the cable.
- Prevent the pressure transmitter from contacting corrosive or overheated media;
- When measuring the liquid pressure, the installation position of the transmitter should avoid the impact of the liquid (water hammer phenomenon) to avoid damage to the sensor overpressure;
- When measuring the liquid pressure, the pressure port should be opened on the side of the processing pipeline to avoid precipitation and slag;
- When measuring gas pressure, the pressure tap should be opened at the top of the process pipeline. The transmitter should also be installed on the upper part of the processing pipeline. So that the accumulated liquid can be easily injected into the processing pipeline;
- Prevent dross from depositing in the duct;
- When measuring steam or other high-temperature media, a buffer tube (coil) and other condensers should be connected. The working temperature of the pressure transmitter should not exceed the limit;
- When freezing occurs in winter, the transmitter installed outdoors must take anti-freezing measures. Avoid volume expansion of the liquid in the pressure inlet due to icing, leading to damage to the sensor;
- The pressure guiding tube should be installed in a place with small temperature fluctuations;

What should be paid attention to when measuring the pressure on the steam pipeline?
Pressure transmitters are used for steam metering and pipeline monitoring.
The temperature in the steam pipeline is generally relatively high. The low is more than one hundred degrees Celsius, and the high is two to three hundred degrees Celsius.
The start and stop of the valve will also cause the pressure in the pipeline to fluctuate.
Today we are going to talk to you about what to pay attention to when measuring the pressure of steam pipes?
