Diaphragm Seal Common Oversights

In many cases, diaphragm seal troubleshooting can seem complicated. With so many factors to review, you may find it difficult to identify the oversight that led to a given result. Fortunately, there are some common problem-causing issues that are relatively easy to solve.

Issues Related to Size and Type

It is very important to ensure that the connections between seal and gauge are the same size and type. This is a very common oversight and it causes unnecessary compatibility issues that may result in lost time and profit. Similarly, you must make certain that your diaphragm seal is the right size for the specified instrument. No matter your industry, it is essential that your seal match your pressure instrument exactly. Otherwise, it simply will not work.

Capillary-Related Problems

When using a capillary with a diaphragm seal, certain oversights can result in a range of issues. For example, in some cases, a capillary with a gauge may need access to an adjustable pointer. In other instances, a capillary with a gauge might require a certain method to mount the gauge. Ensure that you are prepared for these examples to avoid problematic situations related to capillary use.

Other Issues

Other potential diaphragm seal oversights include:

  • Small Pressure Span Gauge with Crimped Window
