The new Pirani Bayard-Alpert vacuum gauge PBR 360 offers increased accuracy, attractive service concept and longevity owing to its redundant filaments.

Vacuum pumps manufacturer Pfeiffer Vacuum has upgraded the analogue vacuum gauges in the ActiveLine to the latest “state-of-the-art” standard, with a successor model to the PBR 260.

The PBR 360 covers the range from 5 x 10-10 to 1 000 hPa and is characterised by its high measuring accuracy.

Owing to its compact design, the gauge provides a space-saving way to incorporate it in vacuum process systems, analytical instruments, leak detection systems and numerous other applications. Two filaments offer enhanced operating reliability, process control and longevity.

Another advantage is the higher accuracy compared with other measuring principles. Existing accessories for the predecessor model can still be used. An attractive service concept with replaceable sensors rounds off the profile of the PBR 360.

“[Owing] to the redundancy of the filaments and the attractive service concept, fewer gauges are required over the same period and can be repaired more often than replaced. This contributes to preventing waste and promoting a sustainable economy,” says Pfeiffer Vacuum product manager Sedrick Njomou.

Many vacuum applications operate only within a specific pressure range. To operate such vacuum systems efficiently, the total pressure must be measured reliably.

Therefore, Pfeiffer Vacuum offers a large product portfolio of measurement gauges available both for a digital and analogue output signal.
