Pressure transmitters for marine applications

How to measure pressure in marine applications? Pressure transmitters for marine applications

In the shipbuilding industry, there are extensive and varied expectations of measuring equipment, including pressure transmitters. Apparatus designed for use in this industrial sector should ensure safe use and guarantee long-term stability. From this blog post, you will learn how pressure transducers are used on ships and in ports, what their technical and environmental requirements are and what safety standards they must meet. We will also look at specific products that meet these challenges, such as JUMO dTRANS p20, JUMO MIDAS S07 MA and JUMO MIDAS C18 SW. Read on!

The role of pressure transmitters in the maritime industry

Pressure transmitters play an important role in the maritime industry, providing the necessary precision and reliability for a variety of measurement applications on ships and in ports. They are used to monitor and regulate pressure in air-conditioning systems, which is important for the comfort of passengers and crew, as well as for optimal cargo storage. In engine rooms, these devices are crucial for monitoring the pressure in oil, fuel, cooling and lubrication systems to ensure the proper operation and safety of engines and other components. In addition, they are essential for ballast management systems, which maintain the stability of the vessel, and for desalination and water purification processes.

Technical and environmental requirements of pressure transmitters in marine applications

The marine industry requires measuring equipment to meet a number of stringent criteria. Equipment designed for this sector must provide reliable performance, long-term stability and resistance to aggressive environmental conditions such as salty, humid sea air. In addition, they must withstand harsh operating conditions such as intense vibration, shock, extreme temperatures and the presence of contaminants.

Moisture and sea salt are two main factors that can cause corrosion and damage to equipment. Pressure transmitters used in marine applications must therefore be made of corrosion-resistant materials, such as high-quality stainless steel or titanium. Furthermore, they must be designed to withstand these harsh conditions without losing precision or functionality.

An example of equipment that meets these requirements are the pressure transmitters in our range, such as the dTRANS p20, which can withstand harsh marine conditions and provide accurate measurements even in extreme temperatures. Our customers use it for pressure monitoring in heating and cooling systems and gas and oil tanks, among others.

MIDAS S07 MA and MIDAS C18 SW pressure sensors have been designed with the marine industry in mind. MIDAS S07 MA is used in heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems to monitor the temperature and pressure of the compressor in the engine room. The MIDAS C18 SW, on the other hand, made of titanium, is ideal for monitoring drinking water preparation processes. With these devices, efficient level monitoring is possible in tankers, bulk carriers, passenger ships, supply vessels and offshore platforms, demonstrating their versatility and reliability in a wide variety of offshore installations.

Safety standards and certification of pressure transmitters for the shipbuilding industry

In the marine industry, adherence to international safety standards and certifications is key to ensuring safe and reliable operations. These standards are set to ensure that all equipment used at sea, including pressure transducers, meets stringent quality, performance and safety requirements.

One of the most well-known and respected certification bodies in the marine industry is Det Norske Veritas Germanischer Lloyd (DNV GL). DNV GL certificates are recognised worldwide and provide proof that a product meets the highest international safety and quality standards. For ship and marine equipment operators, choosing DNV GL-certified products means confidence that equipment is reliable and safe for use in harsh marine environments.

Our dedicated equipment for the marine industry, including pressure transducers, complies with these standards. For example, JUMO pressure transmitters, such as the JUMO MIDAS S07 MA, meet the requirements of environmental category C and EMC 2, according to DNV GL guidelines, demonstrating their high quality and reliability.
