When choosing a pressure sensor for process control and monitoring in a gas flow system or a distillery component, plant operators are faced with an array of choices.
Modern pressure sensors are equipped to provide accurate measurements under arduous operating conditions, providing outstanding resistances to a range of industry-specific corrosives. Absolute, differential, and temperature-compensated pressure measurements can be acquired for containers and pipelines containing: pharmaceutical solvents; flue gas; heated crude oil; and more.
This vast range of pressure sensors represents an industrial problem of choice. The suitability of many pressure components is likely to intersect with multiple applications and sectors, yet there are unique attributes to consider when choosing a pressure sensor for your own facility.
This article will outline four key things to consider when choosing a pressure sensor.
1. Pressure Sensor Type
The primary consideration for selecting a pressure sensor is the type of component that your application requires. For example, negative pressure values cannot be quantified by a gage transmitter, while temperature-compensated pressure measurements can only be carried out by a multivariable pressure sensor or an array of separate pressure and temperature monitors. Pressure transmitters can typically be broken down into four distinct types:
2. Pressure Sensor Range
The pressure range is a superficially simplistic consideration for choosing a pressure sensor. Operators typically depend upon pre-determined application pressure ranges and select a transmitter that matches those values. However, density changes or abrupt pressure variations can reduce the efficacy of measurement equipment, and in extreme cases can damage the component. In such instances, it is advisable to select a sensor with a higher pressure range and calibrate it accordingly.
3. Atmospheric / Process Conditions of Application
Prior to component selection, it is paramount that you consider the corrosive influences that your pressure sensor could be subjected to during operation. Seals may need to be wetted to withstand solvent corrosion in laboratory applications, while special considerations should be taken to protect a pressure sensor’s internal electronics. Corrosive process media or incident humidity can damage transmitters, reducing measurement accuracy and increasing the risk of premature component failure.
4. Onboarding Times
Installation of new components usually impacts a facility’s throughput due to mechanical downtime during integration and reduced efficacy from onboarding processes. For example, the pressure-sensitive diaphragms of a transmitter must be welded to measurement sites to acquire force values and convert them into electrical signals. Ease of weldability and low wiring footprints are critical for rapid and efficient component integration in applications where extended periods of component inactivity are not an option.
Pressure Sensors from ABB
ABB provides a robust range of sensors for customers all over the world. Our range has provided unique measurement solutions for facilities in the oil and gas, energy, laboratory sectors, and more.

ABB Introduces the New LMS200 Magnetic Level Gauge Switch
The LMS200 is a non-invasive, magnetically actuated point level switch solution that is highly reliable under demanding conditions. The LMS200 is specifically designed to improve the ease of use, safety and reliability of magnetically coupled switches. The level ‘set-point’ is easily adjustable without changing any process piping or risking a plant shutdown. The result is a safer, reliable and easier way to maintain level measurement systems.
Features & Benefits
Magnetic Level Gauge (MLG) Solutions
When mounted on an ABB KM26 magnetic liquid level gauge, or any other magnetic level gauges that contain a magnetic float, the LMS200 switch can sense high or low levels within a vessel. The unique magnetic coupling action avoids the need for seals, diaphragms, springs, or torque tubes.

ABB LM80 laser level gauge avoids overloading and jams of ore crusher jaws at new Totten nickel mine.
By installing ABB’s LM80 laser level gauges, the Totten underground mine has stopped worrying about jamming, or overloading the crusher system. As the system is automated, the crusher no longer requires an operator to be present at the controls, all monitored from the operator room including ABB 800xA control system with Extended Operator Workplace (EOW).
We asked Mr Paul Horlings, Automation Specialist, Vale Totten mine and Mr Ron Legault, Operator Room Supervisor, Vale Totten mine: What are the main benefits of ABB’s LM80 laser gauges installed in the crusher and the ABB control system 800xA? “Vale Totten mine is an ABB mine and the 800xA Control System is keeping all ABB products together. We process 300 tons of ore per hour in Totten mine and ABB LM80 laser level gauges, installed on crusher jaws, is optimizing the performance in the crusher.”
“The opening where the ore is falling down is approximately 3x3 feet and if we don’t have ABB laser level gauges the ore will get stuck and jam up. The level gauge maintains an even level from feeder to crusher and the crusher does not get overloaded with ore.”
“Previously we had a case where it took 9 hours to unclog the ore that was stuck in the crusher. Now, after installation of ABB LM80 laser level gauge and update of automation software, we don’t have any more clogging problems. It frees up an operator for other activities.”
