Capsule Sensing Pressure Gauge
The sensing element of a capsule pressure gauge consists of two corrugated diaphragms welded together at their periphery to form a capsule.
The pressure to be measured is introduced into the capsule via an opening in the centre of the first diaphragm. The centre of the second diaphragm is connected to the transmission mechanism so that the deflection of the measuring element can be transmitted to the pointer.
When the pressure rises inside the capsule, both diaphragms will slightly deform. By making use of two diaphragms, the total deflection of the measuring element is twice as large.
For the measurement of very small pressure differences, the deflection of a single capsule may be too small. Therefore, multiple capsules can be stacked on top of each other until sufficient displacement is obtained to move the pointer across the full scale. These stacks can be built with either convex or nested diaphragms.
At Goa Thermostatic Pressure gauge division, we manufacture capsule Pressure gauges which can measure a range as low as 0/10mBar or 0/100mmWc.
