In the mining industry, aftermarket process improvements are essential to enhance hydraulic equipment functionality. To guarantee proper pre-fill and optimize accumulator efficiency, a client partnered with Whitman Controls to design a highly customized fitting to ensure safety, reliability, and cost effectiveness. The client’s lead project engineer, collaborated directly with Michael and Whitman’s engineering team. In under 5 weeks, the team designed, fabricated, and delivered a prototype for testing. The Whitman switch exceeded the client’s expectations, and came in over 35% below their previous supplier’s offering.
Pressure switches are rugged, reliable devices used to sense pressure changes in electromechanical systems that can activate/deactivate electrical circuits when a pre-determined pressure set point is reached. This functionality makes pressure switches especially useful in many automated systems, adding an additional level of safety and control without the need for costly computing systems.
Selecting a pressure switch that is well suited for a particular application is a multi-faceted process. The trick is to know what questions to ask to optimize your application.
