WSE Diaphragm Seal Gauge

WSE Diaphragm Seal Budenberg Australia @ Procon Instrument Technology

Diaphragm Seal Gauge with Welded Construction & Screwed Connection

The Budenberg WSE is a high integrity Diaphragm Seal Gauge that has been designed to withstand the high pressures and temperatures normally associated with Chemical and Oil / Gas applications. The WSE has an all welded construction thereby eliminating many potential leak paths and provides a screwed process connection in a range of sizes up to 1”.

It's unique feature is the ability to set the diaphragm to ‘lock off’ at set pressures thereby protecting the unit from major overload conditions up to and including 400 Bar. This eliminates the need for expensive overload protection valves.

The WSE is available in a wide range of options including a choice of dial sizes, connections, materials, filling fluids and options to permit operation at temperatures in excess of 440°c.

It has been designed for continuous operation on gases or liquids where the pressure element could be become corroded or clogged by the process media. Versions are available to withstand pressure pulsations, vibrations and operation at very high temperatures.

The Budenberg WSE specifications

Size 63mm (2.5"), 100mm (4"), 150mm (6")
Accuracy Class
1.0% as defined in EN837
Pressure Range
The welded seal units is available in a range of configurations dependant on the required Dial Size and Operating Pressure range as follows:
63mm - Seal Diameter - 42mm / Min Range - 1 Bar / Max Range - 400 Bar
100/150mm Seal Diameter - 42mm / Min Range - 5 Bar / Max Range - 400 Bar
100/150mm Seal Diameter - 69mm / Min Range - 1 Bar / Max Range - 400 Bar
Over Range Protection
All units will withstand 130% overload as standard up to 200 Bar. Optionally the diaphragm can be set to 'lock off' allowing the unit to withstand an overload up to the maximum pressure rating of the seal unit. This unique feature can be used to avoid the use and cost of additional overload protection valves.
Materials of Construction Due to the welded construction, all materials including the diaphragm and connection have to be the same material.
Standard - 316L Stainless Steel
Options (SEE-R) - Hastelloy C276, Titanium or Monel 400.
Other materials available on request.
Process Connections
Model WSE has male connections of:
1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1" BSP or NPT 
Model WSI hs female connections of:
1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4" BSP or NPT
Other connections are also available
Filling Fluids
A wide range of filling fluids are available to suit most applications including high temperature and pharmaceutical applications.
Standard Options - Mineral Oil, Silicon HT Oil, Medicinal Paraffin, Glycerine, Syltherm XLT & 400.
Inert Fluorine based fluids can be specified for oxygen and chlorine applications as well as a range of FDA approved fluids for food and pharmaceutical applications. 
Temperature
Normal process operating temperature range:  -20 to +100°c
Elevated temperature operation up to 450°c can be achieved by the selection of an extended neck option and an associated high temperature filling fluid. 
Certification & Traceability
Serial Number Printed on Dial.
Certificate of Conformity traceable to National Standards is supplied
Safety All units are manufactured to comply with EN837-1, S3 Specification and other regulatory standards including PED.

 

Design Note: the WSE-R are of a round construction with 2 flats milled in the upper chamber for installation, whilst the WSE have a hexagon.

 

WSE-1 - Small Dial Gauges 50mm / 63mm and 80mm Pressure Gauges
WSE-2 - Large Dial Gauges 100mm and 150mm Pressure Gauges
WSE-P - Purge in lower chamber for cleaning and or venting
WSE-R - Rare Materials such as Hastelloy C276, Monel 400 and Titanium
 
 
Vent Port (WSE-P)
Units can be supplied with an additional integral connection port for use as either as a vent / drain or connection of a transmitter or used or in-situ calibration purposes
 
Anti Tamper
Designed to
 
Extended Neck
For use in elevated temperatures up to 300°C we can dissipate the effect of heat from the Pressure Gauge by inserting an extended neck between the WSE and the pressure gauge.
 
Remote Mounting
St/steel capillary can be fitted between gauge and seal to protect instrument from heat or vibration
 
Fitting Transmitters
We have a range of standard and 'Smart' Transmitters that can be used in combination with the WSE and WSI or Budenberg can fit customers own free issue transmitters to most diaphragm seal units
 
Accessories
Valve & Adaptors - a full range of Needle and Ball Valves to fit the WSE and WSI - See separate Datasheets.
