Pressure measurement is the analysis of an applied force by a liquid or gas fluid on a surface. Summit offers products from several world-class manufacturers that can measure all these pressure types with a variety of top-quality instrumentation.
The definition of absolute pressure is the pressure of having no matter inside a space, or a perfect vacuum. Measurements taken in absolute pressure use this absolute zero as their reference point.
Differential Pressure (DP) transmitters measure the difference between two pressures. They use a reference point called the low-side pressure and compare it to the high-side pressure. A DP transmitter can be used as a gauge pressure transmitter if the low-side is left open to the atmosphere.
Draft pressure is typically measured in inches of water column, millibar or pascals pressure units.
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.
Level measurement is one of the more essential measurements in a process. Whether the application is for monitoring or control, the level measurement needs to be accurate, reliable, and quick.
The integral orifice flow or low flow meter eliminates impulse lines, reducing leak points by over 50% and decrease start-up time due to the flexibility of numerous process connection options.
Multivariable measurements simultaneously measure differential pressure, static pressure, and external temperature all in one device. Engineered with mass flow and multi-sensing capabilities, these devices can calculate either compensated mass or volumetric flow rate.
