Ashcroft combines the proven polysilicon thin film technology with its longtime know-how of diaphragm seals to create the KS sanitary pressure transmitter. The all-welded stainless steel construction meets the 3A Sanitary Standard 74-02. The KS Sanitary Pressure Transmitter features the benefits of polysilicon thin film performance at an affordable price. Modern chemical vapor disposition methods provide simple, stable, molecular bonds between a proven metal diaphragm and polysilicon strain gage bridge. There are no epoxies or bonding agents to contribute to signal instability or drift. The integral metal diaphragm and polysilicon bridge are virtually unaffected shock by, vibration or mounting position.
