The PR3913 Valve-Mountable pressure transmitter has been designed to meet the requirements of the sub-sea oil industry and is configured to mount directly to the industry standard control valve flange arrangement.

The unique Silicon-on-Sapphire sensor technology provides outstanding performance and gives excellent stability over a wide temperature range. The advanced sensor design consists of a piezoresistive silicon strain gauge circuit, which is epitaxially grown onto the surface of a sapphire diaphragm to form a single crystalline structure. The sapphire sensor element is then molecularly bonded to a titanium alloy sub-diaphragm. This enables the sensor to endure higher over-pressures and provides superb corrosion resistance. The completed sensor exhibits virtually no hysteresis and excellent long-term stability. With outstanding insulation properties, the sapphire substrate allows the sensor to operate over a very wide temperature range without loss of performance.

Housed in fully welded body with wetted parts conforming to the NACE recommendation for material corrosion resistance, this product will provide a durable solution for long term accurate pressure measurement even when permanently situated in extreme depth sub-sea environments. The pressure connection is achieved with an 8mm diameter stem with integral dual redundant o-ring seal grooves. Optional connections are available. Alternative connections are available. The fitting is constructed from Inconel 625 for high chemical resistance. Providing a two wire output signal of 4-20mA with high stability and repeatability for pressure ranges up to 1000bar+. Intended for permanent immersion in pressurised dielectic oil and protected from ingress with a high pressure glass-to-metal lead through the product can withstand external pressure up to 3000 metres depth water and provides secondary pressure containment up to 1650bar. Units can be supplied with hyperbaric test certificates to 3000metres water submersion. Electrical connection is via strong PTFE Raychem Flexlite leads. Pressure ranges available from 0-200bar to 0-1000bar.

An optional ATEX certified version of this product is available approved for explosion protection for flammable gases (zone 0), dusts (zone 20) and mining areas (group I M1).
