Differential pressure measurement on heating systems
When you carry out servicing work on residential heating systems, differential pressure measurement is part of the standard repertoire. These include:
- Measurement of gas flow pressure and static pressure on gas boilers
- Differential pressure measurements in the adjustment and servicing of gas heating systems
- Pressure testing of water pipes using air
The measurement of gas flow and static gas pressure in the system are especially important. Because the burner can only operate well at a flow pressure between approximately 18 to 25 mbar. Outside this range, explosive flame formation can occur. The consequences are malfunctions or even breakdown of the heating system. For this reason, the acquisition of a reliable, easy-to-operate differential pressure measuring instrument is worthwhile.
