Pressure Sensor Provides Pump Protection

Red Valve Co. announces the introduction of the Series 43 Pressure Sensor with grooved ends for grooved-end piping systems.

The Series 43 is suited to pump protection applications, such as a blockage downstream of a pump, that would cause pressure to buildup in the pump housing. A pressure switch connection to the pressure sensor will automatically stop the pump and protect the housing.

The principle of operation is simple. As pressure is sensed by the 360° elastomer sleeve, the captive fluid transfers the pressure to the instrument, providing a consistent, accurate reading. The Series 43 is available for 2 in., 3 in. and 4 in. grooved-end piping systems.
