One of our clients was talking to us over the call and explained the issue with the motors in his pumping station. He said that it is difficult to manually monitor the pressure and change the setting according to it.
He wanted a solution that would display him the right pressure point and would be more beneficial if it also helped in regulating the process.
Our sales engineer suggested a pressure switch to be more specific Eaton pressure switch MCS 11. Let’s see what a pressure switch is and what does it do!
What Is a Pressure Switch?
A pressure switch is an electromechanical device that monitors the pressure of a process. It also maintains the turning on and off of the compressor once the pressure is low or high.
Now you might ask what is there to program, the pressure switches need to be programmed for the setpoint that will be the starting point of the pressure.
If the pressure goes beyond that the pressure switch will turn off the pump or motor.
Types of Pressure Switches
There are two types of pressure switches that are most common and used in several applications: mechanical or electromechanical and electronic or solid-state.
The type of switch is based on the particular application and the features of the switch can make it easy to choose one. The selection criterion is composed of the below given:
- The highest pressure that can be allowed.
- The switch point is the minimum pressure point.
- The operating pressure range.
- Process conditions like shock, vibration.
The industries that use pressure switches:
Many industries have applications using pumps and motors. These applications require continuous monitoring of the pressure for the process completion and safety as well. Some of the use cases of pressure switch MCS 11 are:
- HVAC equipment
- Hydraulic systems
- Pumping stations
- Oil and mines
- Chemical processing plants
- Water pipelines
The pressure switch MCS 11 is one of the most common pressure switches that are being used in current industrial applications.
If you are looking for a pressure switch, look for the requirements of your process and that will help you to figure out which one would be more suitable.
