Petrochemical Gauges: Measurements and Safety Guidelines

A few important uses of Petroleum refining include fractionalization, distillation, cracking, recover, blending and storage. First of all, to use all of these methods’ – measurement of pressure and temperature is essential. Many companies prefer to use mechanical pressure gauges for their better visibility and longer service life as well as their easier protection for Ex applications.

A variety of gauges for petrochemical production is used due to different requirements. Before using these petrochemical gauges, there needs to be a evaluation of many of the following factors.

When is an Industrial Pressure Gauge not just a simple pressure gauge?

Always, because one gauge cannot be used for multiple purposes since there are different situations in which every gauge is used.

Therefore, mechanical pressure gauges can’t be used for all applications. Sometimes the temperature gets too high or there are vibrations or corrosive dangerous chemicals used as pressure medium. In order to meet the requirements petrochemical gauges are required to keep varying ranges of pressure tolerances. Safety and Performance are two important constants of Petrochemical Gauges because you will always want to have safe solutions and prevention of possible leakage will be one of your biggest concerns.

Diaphragm seals are an important accessoire for petrochemical gauges because it protects the gauge from corrosion and hot environment. Also it ensures gauge safety by assuring that temperature inside the gauge remains normal. Therefore, diaphragm seals are the crucial point when it comes to safety protection. You should always be safe with the gauges that can be equipped with a diaphragm seal. Those can be also coated with PTFE or Tantallum for further protection against corrosive mediums.


Petrochemical Pressure Gauges: The Benefits of Stainless Steel:

Petrochemical gauges can be used in various circumstances based on their use in industry. Therefore, to meet adverse circumstances Stainless Steel Mechanical Pressure Gauges should be the first choice. Different companies use a mechanical pressure gauge with a glass fibre case that should not be used. The reason for that is glass fibre is prone to corrosion when it comes into contact with serveral substances. Glass fibre can also not withstand high temperatures.

The stainless-steel construction of  Schmierer industrial pressure gauges provides protection against all kinds of corrosive mediums. Our stainless-steel pressure products are more durable and last longer even in severe conditions which makes them the best gauges for your petrochemical pressure solutions.


High Quality Standards for Petroleum and Chemical Pressure Gauges:

We have customers from different countries that are using our gauges for their petroleum refinery projects. Our measuring instruments are designed and manufactured under ISO 9001:2015. We conduct several tests in our laboratories before bringing them to our customers. All mechanical pressure gauges meet pressure gauges standards EN 837-1 or 837-3.

Chemical and petrochemical industries must meet the standards and because of these standards they are subjected to strict international requirements such as ATEX or ISO. As a result we consider these standards and have manufactured all industrial gauge and electric contact devices to meet and exceed these standards at all times.

Our Contact gauges alongside with our Diaphragm Pressure Gauges are used for petroleum applications in all areas over the world.

We ensure quality performance and long service life with the possibility of repair in our own repair workshop.
