5 handy tips to increase the longevity of a pressure sensor

Here are some simple, easy tips to implement that will result in fewer failures and longer lasting pressure sensors.

Just as a large ship is steered by a rather small rudder, pressure sensors play a much larger role in process monitoring and control than their size indicates. Likewise, they may not be the most expensive or complex cog in the machine, but their failure can have big consequences.Pressure transducer failure can be problematic for a range of reasons, but two primary concerns are:1. Damage to the system can be substantial when a pressure sensor fails and pressure falls or soars out of spec.
