The PR3920 differential pressure transmitter provides very accurate low pressure wet-wet differential pressure measurement on extremely high line pressure sources. Designed for permanent installation in very demanding subsea applications the housing is completely sealed to resist 300 bar external pressure. Intended for submersion in pressurised dielectric oil with seawater for monitoring of subsea well control valves or hydraulic pressure measurement.

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.

The PR3920 pressure transmitter provides surface mounting with a stainless steel mounting plate and dual redundant o-ring face seals. Both the high and low pressure ports can withstand 1000bar overpressure with no damage or loss of performance. The titanium alloy wetted parts provide conformance to NACE corrosion resistance requirements. Electrical connection is via a heavy duty PTFE cable with optional angle of orientation. Output signal is a 4-20mA, 2 wire current loop which can be powered from and external 10-36Vdc supply. Application includes control of chemical injection for sub-sea wells for oil and gas extraction.

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).
