The Hydro Dynamic Pressure Sensor System consists of the 350300 Hydro Dynamic Pressure Transducer which uses piezoresistive sensing technology and the 146824 interconnect cable. It is intended for measuring both static and dynamic pressure in fluid machines such as hydro turbines or centrifugal pumps. For Hydro Turbine applications this measurement can help our customers monitor hydraulic phenomena such as Rough Load Zone, vortexing, and cavitation in the draft tube and head cover area, as well as pulsations in the penstock. For centrifugal pump applications, this measurement can help customers with monitoring cavitation and other flow instabilities that are potentially detrimental to machinery and operations.
