Every month, CONTROL’s editors take a specific product area, collect all the latest, significant tools we can find, and present them here to make your job easier. If you know of any tools and resources we didn’t include, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll add them to the website.
MULTIMEDIA TRAINING PROGRAM
INVOLVE interactive training lesson program covers the principles of process measurement and control, including pressure measurement. This lesson presents the basics of pressure measurement and applications of direct and inferred pressure measurement methods.
TUTORIAL ON PRESSURE
Tutorial introduces and explains the concepts and techniques of measuring pressure. Topics include definition of pressure, pressure sensors, pressure measurement, signal conditioning for pressure sensors and DAQ systems for pressure measurements
Ametek’s Pressure Measurement Handbook is a user’s guide that covers the fundamentals of pressure management, and discusses use of calibrators, testers, manometers and the selection of a pressure measurement standard. Downloadable at www.controlglobal.com/whitepapers/2005/017.html.
PRESSURE MEASUREMENT SEMINAR
Lecture and laboratory course is designed for metrologists, laboratory and quality assurance technicians, supervisors, engineers and others interested in the basic principles of static pressure measurement. Primary emphasis is on the principles and practices used in the calibration of pressure standards and measuring instruments, including piston gauges, digital pressure controllers and other elastic transducers.
White paper highlights findings from the three-volume “Global Markets for Electronic Pressure Transmitters, Transducers and Component-Level Sensors” report. Electronic pressure transmitters, electronic non-process pressure transducers and transmitters and electronic component-level pressure sensors are covered.
SEALS UNDER PRESSURE
“Choosing a Diaphragm Seal for Pressure Applications,” discusses how these seals can protect sensors from corrosive materials in chemical applications, debris in wastewater uses or when switching to sanitary connections in a dairy plant.

SELECTING PRESSURE PRODUCTS
Automation Products Group
This item lists guidelines for selecting a pressure product to suit your needs. Pressure products for gas or liquid measurement from vacuum to 0 and from 0-5,000 psia or 0 to 30,000 psig are presented.
PRESSURE AND LEVEL MEASUREMENT
This paper discusses pressure considerations in the measurement of liquids. Subjects include hydrostatic devices, differential pressure transmitters, and diaphragm seal pressure transmitters.
