WIKA PG43 SA available in ATEX version

5 November 2018
WIKA has developed the application possibilities of its hygienic diaphragm pressure gauges of the PG43SA series: The WIKA PG43SA-S is now also available with an ATEX approval. The PG43SA pressure gauge can thus be used in hazardous areas for ignition protection type Ex h zone 1 (gas) and zone 21 (dust).

For safety-critical processes in the pharmaceutical and food industries, the WIKA PG43SA-S and the other instruments in the series are also suitable as a result of their “dry measuring cell” (no risk of contamination by the transmission fluid), the exceptionally robust diaphragm element and the high overload protection. Also, the WIKA PG43SA-D pressure gauge is the only instrument of its kind to feature an integrated diaphragm element monitoring. This functionality is patented: A diaphragm rupture is flagged by an indicator on the dial. In the event of such a failure, a second barrier keeps the process sealed.  

All hygienic pressure gauges of the PG43SA series fulfil the 3-A Sanitary Standard and are certified by EHEDG. They are CIP and SIP-capable, and optionally they are also completely autoclavable.
