Product Description

The DMP331P flush diaphragm pressure transmitter can be used on liquids or gases up to a maximum temperature of 300 Degrees Celsius.

High temperature media

The very high process media temperature tolerance is achieved by integrating a cooling element between the isolating flush membrane and the silicon strain gauge sensing element.

As long as the ambient temperature is significantly lower than the media temperature, the cooling element will dissipate high temperatures and reduce the temperature being conducted from the isolation diaphragm to a level that is within the operating temperature range of the pressure sensor electronics.

It is common practice to stand off a pressure sensor with a long piece of dead ended pipe to reduce the temperature at the sensor, but this can reduce the dynamic response of the pressure measurement and add unwanted volume to the system which can upset the performance of a test or a process.

By using a flush isolation diaphragm with a cooling element it is possible to measure high temp media pressures without introducing any extra volume to the system or damping the response of the pressure reading.

Hygienic fittings

A variety of hygienic flush diaphragms can be specified for clamp on or screw in fitment.

For sanitary food and biotech installations a food grade oil fill can be specified to protect the product being processed or stored in case the open diaphragm is accidentally damaged causing it to leak the fill fluid into the system.

Pressure ranges

The DMP331P high temperature pressure sensor can measure ranges from 100 millibar up to 40 bar with an accuracy of 0.175% full scale (0.25% for <0.4 bar) best straight line which includes non-linearity, hysteresis and repeatability errors.

Output signal

The pressure transmitter’s electronics provide a 4 to 20 milliamp current or 0-10 volt output signal. There is an ATEX approved version for intrinsic safety to allow use in a hazardous area with an appropriate IS zone barrier, and a SIL2 approved electronics version for applications requiring high electronic reliability.

Electrical connections

There are many electrical connections to choose from including an IP68 cable gland for external wash down cleaning of the sensor and the popular DIN43650A plug & socket with an IP65 protection rating.

Compensated & media temperature range

For the option where the media temperature is rated to 200°C, does this refer to the compensated temperature range?

There is a cooling element between the media and sensor so the compensated temperature range is much lower. 200°C refers to the media temperature upper limit. The cooling element works by dissipating heat into the surrounding ambient temperature air.

The compensated temperature range is -20 to +85°C, with the integrated cooling element, the pressure sensing element should not see higher than 85°C.

3/4″ Tri-Clamp & 121°C Autoclave

I would like a autoclave pressure sensor which would resistant to 121°C degrees for 30 minutes and working in a 0-3 bar range. The pressure sensor should have a 3/4″ TC connection.

As standard the DMP 331 P can be used on media temperatures up to 125 degrees Celsius, and a 3/4 inch TriClamp (TC) connection is also possible as specified below.

NPT threads with flush diaphragms

Do you offer any other threading options such as NPT for the DMP331P flush diaphragm pressure transmitter?

DMP331P Hygienic Flush Pressure TransmitterNo the DMP331P is not available with a tapered NPT thread. Flush diaphragms and tapered threads such as the NPT type do not go together very well because the diaphragm is very sensitive to mechanical stresses during installation. An NPT thread seal is created by the tightening together of the male and female thread which causes a lot of localised stress. Parallel threads such as G1/4 do not provide the seal directly, but instead compress an O ring which sits around the outside of the male thread between two flat or grooved surfaces. A parallel thread requires significantly less torque than tapered threads to make a seal.

Also, it is often required by the installer to ensure that the flush diaphragm is not protruding from or recessing into the surface of the vessel wall. It is very easy to determine the precise depth of flush diaphragm when it is fitted with a parallel thread, but the depth a tapered thread device once installed is not so precise and can vary between devices and re-fitments of the same device.

-0.6 to +0.6 bar pressure range

Can the DMP331P pressure transmitter with flush pressure port be provided with a compound pressure range of -0.6barg to +0.6barg?

Yes it can, but it will be a custom scaling of the output and it should only be used with media that will always be below a temperature of +70 degrees Celsius.

Using oil filled sensors in food processing

Why do some pressure measurement devices need to have a food grade oil filling?

The majority of pressure sensing devices which include an oil filled capsule have a thin isolation diaphragm containing a silicone oil filling. The silicon oil provides the pressure transfer medium between the process media and sensing element.

If the isolation diaphragm fails for whatever reason, the oil may leak into the process contaminating the product being processed. In food processing, any substance that might contaminate the process, must be harmless if consumed.

Standard silicone oil is not food compatible, and therefore some manufacturers will offer an alternative oil fill such as peanut oil, vegetable oil or a food grade silicone oil to make their products suitable for the food and drink industry.

Withstand 400°F to measure 130 psi steam pressure

We are plant based food processing company and we need a pressure transducer to measure 0-130PSI steam which can tolerate temperatures up to 400 degF, would the DMP 331 P be able to do this?

A DMP 331 P fitted with the 300°C cooling element will allow you use the sensor on steam at 400°F, and since the application is on food we would recommend a food grade oil fill behind the isolation diaphragm as a precaution to protect the process from contamination.
