Pressure switches

Pressure switches: how do they work?

Pressure switches are two-state (open and closed) electromechanical devices used to determine a specific pressure value of a fluid in a plant. Basically, they are controllers that regulate the pressure of the fluid within a specific pressure range. The functioning of pressure switches is characterised by two key parameters:

• activation pressure
• minimum/maximum intervention pressure

Unlike a gauge, a pressure switch does not make any measurements but is used where a change of state is necessary as pressure varies.
