Pressure Measurement in Oxygen Service applications – Oil Free Pressure Sensors for Oxygen and Medical Gases

Kavlico Pressure Sensors is launching the PTE5000 (Oxygen service) family of modular sensors designed for oxygen service supply and transport applications. PTE5000 for oxygen services is manufactured at cleanliness levels in accordance with ISO15001 and are supplied in oil free packaging and meet ISO 15001 certificate of conformity. As such the sensors are approved for use in medical gas service applications such as breathing oxygen and high pressure oxygen service and distribution applications.
Kavlico’s PTE5000 offers a competitive height advantage (20 mm, depending on the connector type), low weight and a hermetically sealed design. The compact design incorporates Kavlico’s Thin Film strain gauge technology, with a welded, sealed sense element in a stainless steel housing (AISI304). Due to the hermetically sealed, welded design the sense element is impervious to almost any media, and does not require an internal seal.  
The PTE5000 oxygen service sensors are offered in a variety of standard pressure ranges from 0-10 bar to 0-600 bar. Higher pressure ranges are also available on request. The product range includes a number of current connector types for medical applications (shown) and various custom versions adapted to specific requirements.
The sensor’s compact design as well as low overall weight is ideal for applications with spacing and weight limitations, or integration into medical air plant control systems, The robust design ensures high repeatability and long term stability. The sensors are designed for a wide range of liquid and gaseous media and a wide temperature range from -30° C to +100°C (media to 120°C). Typical applications are in the medical air plant sector, medical gas control systems, medical gas control manifolds, medical gas storage and delivery systems etc.
