How to Detect Scale Buildup using a Differential Pressure Gauge?

Differential pressure gauges are great at monitoring scale buildup in pipes and pumps.

By comparing an inlet and outlet of your system, the gauge can detect excessive pressure loss that could be resulting from deposit buildup.

Furthermore, a differential pressure gauge can be placed across a pump to ensure that the pump is putting out the proper change in pressure from inlet to outlet.

As a result, operators can get vital diagnosis data by monitoring this increase or decrease in the differential pressure.

Using a differential pressure gauge in scale buildup applications can:

  • Provide direct feedback of scale buildup to help isolate issues

  • Simple and extremely effect tool for your maintenance team

  • Inexpensive, robust design
