Products and services

BD|SENSORS’ pressure measuring instruments and level probes in particular have set global standards in terms of innovation and solutions based on combinations of seawater- and chemical-resistant metal alloys such as CuNiFe or titanium and mechanically robust ceramics sensors made of high-purity aluminum-oxide and polished measuring membranes. The polished ceramics membrane furthermore prevents or impedes deposits, in particular in the presence of seawater with a high salt content.

Characteristics / special features

  • nominal pressures 0 - 40 mbar to 0 - 600 bar or
  • fill heights from 0 - 40 cm to 0 - 200 m H20
  • pressure connections and enclosures made of stainless steel, CuNiFe, titanium;
  • on request also Hastelloy and Inconel
  • capacitive ceramic pressure sensors Al2O3 99.9% polished
Pressure Transmitter for Shipbuilding and Offshore DMP 457

The pressure transmitter DMP 457 has been especially designed for rough conditions occurring especially in shipbuilding and offshore applications. All gaseous and liquid media,which are compatible with stainless steel 1.4404 (316L) respectively can be used.

In order to meet the special requirements for shipbuilding and offshore applications extensive tests had to be passed to get the LR, DNV▪GL and CCS approvals.

Pressure Transmitter for Shipbuilding and Offshore DMK 457

The pressure transmitter DMK 457 with ceramicsensor has been designed for typical applications in shipbuilding and offshore constructions as alternative to our pressure transmitter DMP 457 with piezoresistive stainless steel sensor.

In combination with the copper-nickel-alloy the DMK 457 is suitable for seawater, e.g. level measurement in ballast tanks, etc.

Probe for Marine and Offshore LMK 458

The hydrostatic probe LMK 458 has been developed for measuring level in service and storage tanks and is as a consequence certificated for shipbuilding and offshore applications.

The basis for the LMK 458 is a capacitive ceramic sensor element designed by BD|SENSORS, which offers a high overload resistance and medium compatibility.
