Why Do I Need a Pressure Switch?

Over the years, we at RBS have helped countless customers from many different industries understand the different applications for the various pressure metering instruments we offer. What, for instance, is the difference between a pressure gauge and a pressure switch?

In short, a pressure gauge is the meter that actually measures the pressure of something, whereas a pressure switch is an instrument that can monitor and control pressure levels in an automated fashion. Pressure switches are usually used to switch pump or compressor motors on or off, depending on the pressure level.

From automotive components, to gas compressors, all the way to household water pumps, pressure switches help to maintain a safe and functional level of pressure in a range of different systems. These systems will all generally have high and low pressure limits, and it’s the job of the pressure switch to make sure that the pressure level in the system remains within those two extremes. If the pressure exceeds a certain point, the pressure switch will shut off the motor to avoid approaching a breaking point; if the pressure drops below a certain point, the switch will turn on the motor to keep the pressure within the desired range.

Buying Pressure Switches in Australia

Needless to say, any type of system that utilises pressure will require a pressure switch to keep the levels in check. At Ross Brown Sales, we offer an array of different pressure switches in Australia. We work with Condor-Europe’s number one brand for pressure control instruments-to make sure that the products we provide are of the finest craftsmanship.

The pressure switches available through RBS are all thoroughly adjustable, so you can change both the cut-in and cut-out pressure levels of the switch depending on your specific system, application or pressurized medium. Each switch monitors pressure with accuracy and precision, and guarantees safety and efficiency.
