Product lines for pressure and temperature control

Trafag draws from decades of experience in the production of pressure and temperature measuring instruments for maritime applications. Long life reliability of Trafag products continuously meets the rising expectations of the ship building industry. Research and development works hand-in-hand with engineering to meet the requirements of marine classification authorities.

Pressure transmitters
Pressure switches The electronic pressure transmitters are based on Trafag’s own sensor technologies: thin-film-on-steel and thick-film-on-ceramic. In combination with the inhouse developed ASIC electronics, these offer excellent long-term stability and maximum precision under the roughest of conditions. The large selection of designs makes it possible to choose the optimal product for a multitude of applications.

In particular, we would like to mention the successful common-rail pressure transmitter with measuring ranges  of up to 2500 bar is certified by the  ten largest ship approval companies.

Pressure switches
Trafag‘s mechanical pressure switches offer high vibration resistance and switchpoint accuracy in combination with an extraordinary rugged design for years of maintenance-free operation in rough conditions. Different sensors based on bellow, membrane and piston principle cover a wide range of pressure ranges, media and load cycle profiles.

For decades of experience in successfully supplying thermostats to the shipbuilding industry, Trafag products have a long track record of proven reliability and accuracy. Different product lines with a variety of features and options offer a wide media temperature range and high switchpoint accuracy in a very robust design.
