Diaphragm Seal Gauge with Welded Construction & Screwed Connection
The Budenberg WSE is a high integrity Diaphragm Seal Gauge that has been designed to withstand the high pressures and temperatures normally associated with Chemical and Oil / Gas applications. The WSE has an all welded construction thereby eliminating many potential leak paths and provides a screwed process connection in a range of sizes up to 1”.
It's unique feature is the ability to set the diaphragm to ‘lock off’ at set pressures thereby protecting the unit from major overload conditions up to and including 400 Bar. This eliminates the need for expensive overload protection valves.
The WSE is available in a wide range of options including a choice of dial sizes, connections, materials, filling fluids and options to permit operation at temperatures in excess of 440°c.
It has been designed for continuous operation on gases or liquids where the pressure element could be become corroded or clogged by the process media. Versions are available to withstand pressure pulsations, vibrations and operation at very high temperatures.

The Budenberg WSE specifications
|Size||63mm (2.5"), 100mm (4"), 150mm (6")
1.0% as defined in EN837
The welded seal units is available in a range of configurations dependant on the required Dial Size and Operating Pressure range as follows:
63mm - Seal Diameter - 42mm / Min Range - 1 Bar / Max Range - 400 Bar
100/150mm - Seal Diameter - 42mm / Min Range - 5 Bar / Max Range - 400 Bar
100/150mm - Seal Diameter - 69mm / Min Range - 1 Bar / Max Range - 400 Bar
|Over Range Protection||
All units will withstand 130% overload as standard up to 200 Bar. Optionally the diaphragm can be set to 'lock off' allowing the unit to withstand an overload up to the maximum pressure rating of the seal unit. This unique feature can be used to avoid the use and cost of additional overload protection valves.
|Materials of Construction||Due to the welded construction, all materials including the diaphragm and connection have to be the same material.
Standard - 316L Stainless Steel
Options (SEE-R) - Hastelloy C276, Titanium or Monel 400.
Other materials available on request.

1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1" BSP or NPT
Model WSI hs female connections of:
1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4" BSP or NPT
Other connections are also available
A wide range of filling fluids are available to suit most applications including high temperature and pharmaceutical applications.
Standard Options - Mineral Oil, Silicon HT Oil, Medicinal Paraffin, Glycerine, Syltherm XLT & 400.
Inert Fluorine based fluids can be specified for oxygen and chlorine applications as well as a range of FDA approved fluids for food and pharmaceutical applications.
Normal process operating temperature range: -20 to +100°c
Elevated temperature operation up to 450°c can be achieved by the selection of an extended neck option and an associated high temperature filling fluid.
