A vast number of industries rely on pressure gauges to keep their businesses performing at optimal effectiveness. Alpha Controls, a leading supplier of measurement, sensing and controlling instruments, offers equipment from 3D Instruments, a leading supplier of pressure monitoring instrumentation.
About 3D Instruments
Established in 1973, 3D Instruments manufactures rugged, reliable pressure gauges, along with custom-engineered pressure and temperature measurement solutions for virtually any application. Originally, 3D designed and developed a unique bourdon tube technology for the aerospace industry. This revolutionary gauge utilized a helically wound bourdon tube manufactured from Inconel X750. The helically wound coil provided outstanding resistance to shock and vibration, allowing continuous, accurate and uninterrupted operation. The innovative design and six-year warranty on 3D's direct drive gauges has positioned the company impressively in the marketplace. Today, its direct drive gauge design has been used in a wide range of industries, and can withstand even the most severe applications.
Some of the company's leading instruments are listed below.
- Series 34 Pressure Gauge: The new Series 34 direct drive pressure gauges provide that vital check, even in the worst applications. The single sensing element withstands vibration and dampens pulsation. 3D’s direct drive gauges have been proven to last longer than other types of bourdon tube pressure gauges in extreme environments. Since they require less maintenance time and fewer replacement parts, the Series 34 Pressure Gauge reduces costs and extends the life of instruments.
- Series 25 Pressure Gauge: The Series 25 Accu-Drive pressure gauges utilize the finest materials of construction. Gauge case materials can be either ABS or 300 Series stainless steel. The bourdon tube is constructed of Inconel X750, and all other wetted parts are 316 stainless steel. The lower cost of ownership, long service life, maintenance-free direct drive technology, robust design and a wide array of pressure ranges makes it the ideal choice for demanding pressure monitoring or test and calibration applications.
