Series BB Bourdon Tube Differential Pressure Switch

Stainless Steel Bourdon Tubes, Adjustable Deadband, High Pressure
 

Welded stainless steel Bourdon tubes reduce chance of leakage, (even in the event of fire), in Model BB Differential Pressure Switches. Units are ideal for checking differential pressure (head) across high pressure pumps and filters. Hermetically sealed mercury wetted contacts help ensure reliable operations. Extra sensitive (fixed deadband) units are available on special order, as are weatherproof and explosion-proof enclosures. See Dimensional Information
