Varying temperatures of the medium and the surroundings, combined with high humidity, can lead to condensation within the pressure transmitter. This in its turn will cause corrosion damage to the electronics or the sensor.
Condensation within a vessel
Occurs frequently in:
- cooled piping or tanks (e.g. in breweries, dairies and the beverage industry)
- exhaust systems (automobiles)
Extra code 631 - encapsulated version
The encapsulation of the sensor in silicone gel reduces the volume of air within the sensor so far that it is not possible for sufficient condensation to arise to the extent that it would cause damage.
