High range pressure sensors, digital test gauges, loggers & calibration pumps for measuring and testing hydraulic equipment.
These instruments are used for measuring very high pressures on compressed gas & hydraulic systems.
Applications for high range pressure measurement include hydraulic actuators, aerospace flight controls & landing gear test rigs, destructive testing, water cutting machines, construction plant machinery, injection moulding, and oil exploration industry.

Measuring high range pressure is typically required when working with hydraulic systems that generate large loads and forces, such as cranes, lifts, construction equipment, and structural test machines. On hydraulic systems the pressure is often in the order of a few hundred (x100) bars or a few thousand (x1000) psi.
Hydraulic pressures can be highly destructive to sensitive components such as measurement instrumentation, and therefore these devices have a very robust mechanical design to withstand the rapid rise and fall of very high pressures over many cycles.
It is also possible to measure pneumatic systems with very high pressures. In some ways pneumatic systems are less destructive than hydraulic systems because there is no fluid movement to create a hammer effect, however the safety risks are a greater concern, because of the risk of escaping high pressure gas which is capable of propelling objects to a high velocity.
Pressure units which are used to describe high pressure ranges include bar (bar), megapascals (MPa) or pounds force per square inch (psi, lbf/in2), or kilopounds force per square inch (kpsi, ksi).
