Pressure Sensor Housings & Feedthroughs

Product Description

Pressure sensors are measuring instruments that record the pressure of gases and liquids, and convert the result into an electrical signal for transmission in monitoring systems. There are different types of pressure sensors - absolute and differential pressure sensors are the most frequently used types of sensors for industrial, automotive and medical applications.

Pressure sensors are extremely delicate and can be overloading, resulting in irreparable damaged if the measuring range is exceeded. To prevent this, pressure sensors can be reliably protected using hermetically sealed glass-to-metal housings and feedthroughs.

Advantages

Our custom pressure sensor housings and feedthroughs are extremely resistant to corrosion, which helps enable the sensors to maintain a long lifespan – particularly for those used in industrial applications. The materials used in pressure sensor housings and feedthroughs are made to meet food grade standards and can therefore be utilized in transport and food storage applications. These materials are suitable for medical applications as well.

Our glass-to-metal sealed pressure sensor housings and feedthroughs provide reliable protection and are resistant to a range of harmful environmental influences.

Applications

In the automotive sector, pressure sensor housings and feedthroughs are primarily used for encapsulating tire and oil pressure sensors.

In the industrial sector, pressure sensor housings and feedthroughs are used predominantly in high-pressure applications, process engineering, control equipment and in food transportation and storage.

In medical electronics, blood pressure monitoring is a common application.

Technical Details

Technology

The types of metal and glass used for pressure sensor housings and feedthroughs are selected based on customer requirements. For example, stainless steel or titanium metal housings can be offered to customers in the medical electronics industry for pressure monitoring. For reliable hermeticity of these housing components, our signature glass-to-metal sealing (GTMS) technology is used. Please click on this page for more information.


Features / Specifications

Glass-to-metal sealed housings and feedthroughs are suitable for measuring extremely high pressures (up to 2,000 bar) as well as for recording extremely small pressure differentials.
