Here's how some of our customers use this product...

Measuring Pressure in Compressed Air Lines

The Background: Our customer is commercial machine shop that has a compressed air system they use to power some of the shop tools. They are updating the system and are looking for a way to more reliably measure air pressure.

The Problem: The customers old system had a single, old, unreliable analog pressure gauge. The system leaked and the customer was unable to find the source of the leaks. To run the shop tools, it’s important to keep the air pressure between 80 and 120 psi.

The Solution: We suggested the customer use AST 4000 pressure sensors and a panel meter. By including a sensor on each line, the customer can narrow down the source of leaks. The AST 4000 provides an accurate measurement of air pressure and can even be used with a process controller to have the compressor accurately maintain enough pressure in the lines at all time.
