Melt Pressure Transducers incorporate a filled capillary design. This tried and proven design provides an electronic signal which is proportional to the measured pressure, and allows the transducer to operate at process temperatures up to 750°F. The electronics of each transducer are a Wheatstone Bridge - bonded strain gauge design insuring high accuracy, reliability and repeatability.

These transducers are available in two distinct styles. The CT style melt pressure transducer is the classic melt pressure transducer design. The CT style melt pressure transducer comprises a 6" rigid stem, along with 18" of flexible capillary, for optimal thermal isolation. The RT style melt pressure transducer, has only a 6" rigid stem, and is a rigid stem only version of the classic melt pressure transducer.
