Understanding the Difference Between Orange Research Piston and Diaphragm Sensors

Orange Research

Orange Research is well known for their rugged and reliable differential pressure gauges, flow meters, switches and transmitters. They provide differential pressure measurement instruments that commonly use two different sensors to indicate the pressure difference across two ports, piston and diaphragm sensors.

Piston DP instruments are commonly used for liquid applications that will tolerate a slight amount of media bypass.

Diaphragm DP units, commonly used in air, gas and liquid applications, isolate the high and low pressure ports, eliminating and eliminate media bypass.

Understanding the specifics of your application will determine which design is better suited and consultation with an applications expert is strongly recommended.
