With this, there is now also a mechanical measuring instrument available for safe pressure monitoring in hygienic applications. Its measuring principle, with a flush welded diaphragm, enables mechanical pressure transmission, whereby the risk of product contamination through a transmission fluid is eliminated. As a result of its high overpressure safety, the instrument can also withstand critical process conditions.

The operational flexibility of the PG43SA-S is supported through a large selection of small process connections − for example, to DIN 32676 (clamp) or to DIN 11864. Tested in accordance with 3-A Sanitary Standards, the pressure gauge with hygienic case is CIP, SIP and wash-down capable. It can thus be cleaned reliably and time-efficiently. An easily accessible zero adjustment on the top of the case enables calibration if needed.
