Kulite state of the art pressure transducers are ideal for shipboard, downhole, subsea, and general military and commercial marine applications. The transducers are fully submersible to 3000 meters for use in subsea applications. The Kulite pressure transducer meets the strictest Navy requirements with regard to enclosure, splash-proofness, salt spray and humidity. All welded construction provides a hermetic seal to eliminate the effects of moisture, salt, dust and other contaminants. The extremely low mass of the solid-state, monocrystalline silicon diaphragm yields a device with excellent tolerance of environmental shock and vibration. This same characteristic of the Kulite sensor also accounts for its extremely fast response. The stiffness of the monocrystalline silicon material renders the device insensitive to changes in inclination for all but the lowest pressure ranges. Construction is commonly 316 stainless steel, Inconel or Hastelloy for optimum corrosion resistance and long term reliability in a saltwater environment.
