Cooling Adapter for Extreme Temperatures

April 11, 2019

It is important to consider both the ambient and media temperature conditions of an application when selecting a pressure transducer. These temperatures have a direct effect on the accuracy of the transducer. Most pressure transducers supplied by Core Sensors are compensated over a specified pressure and temperature to help minimize the effects of temperature.

For applications where the temperature is outside of the transducers specified temperature range, Core Sensors offers an all 316L SS cooling adapter. This adapter isolates the transducer by increasing the distance from the extreme media temperatures. The temperature of the media dissipates as it passes through the cooling adapter. The same installation method is effective when dealing with extremely cold medias. In this instance, the cooling adapter acts as a heat exchanger.

Standard 1/4” NPT male and female connections allow for quick threaded installation in a modular design. The cooling adapter can quickly be added or removed without additional hardware or equipment. While factors such as ambient temperature, media temperature and airflow need to be considered, temperature drops of 250°F are possible. The max pressure rating of the adapter is 10,000 PSI and weighs approximately 8 ounces.

Core Sensors stocks cooling adapters for quick shipment and can be ordered using part number 00449-00.
