Combo pressure/temperature sensors


May 22, 2012

American Sensor Technologies (AST) has introduced an pressure/temperature sensor and pressure/temperature transmitter that provide both pressure and temperature outputs from a single process point. This dual output configuration reduces process penetration points and leaks that are important considerations in critical systems such as hydrogen, oxygen, heavy oil processing, hydraulics, analyzers, offshore, pipelines and ammonia systems. In addition to saving money by performing the task of two units, the Model AST20PT Stainless Steel Media Isolated Pressure/Temperature Sensor and Model AST46PT Explosionproof Pressure/Temperature Transmitter are ideal for low-power systems as both a pressure and temperature reading are generated with the power consumption of one sensor.
