Tactile Pressure Sensor Film
November 1, 2003
Sensor Products Inc.'s Pressurex is a tactile pressure sensor film that has multiple industrial applications. Assessing compression magnitude and distribution between any two impacting surfaces, the sensor film reveals flange and gasket interface pressure profiling on any pump, compressor, motor or pipeline and is engineered to ensure o-ring seal efficacy. When placed between interfacial surfaces, it changes color, the intensity of which is proportional to the amount of force applied. The film offers a pressure range of 28 psi to 18,500 psi. It may be trimmed to size by the end user and operates similar to a Polaroid in capturing a one-time image. Sensor Products Inc.
