We offer three different pressure sensors that provide operational information for a wide variety of processes and specific machinery monitoring applications.
The Bently Nevada* product line includes pressure sensors for many different applications. From hydro turbine and centrifugal pumps to reciprocating compressor cylinders, we have a sensor for your machine.
Additionally, our pressure sensors can detect both static and dynamic pressure, come with a long operational lifetime (over 50 million cycles), can operate in high humidity environments, and in the case of our 200132 – can support nine pressure ranges with variable, user-defined increments to really fine-tune your machinery diagnostics.
When you need accurate, actionable data on the various pressure states of your plant-wide collection of machinery, Bently Nevada provides you with the peace of mind that comes from decades of proven reliability and global adoption.

Pressure Sensors Product Overview
200132 Sensor - The 200132 sensor was designed to provide static (average) pressure measurements from general process monitoring to the Trendmaster* system. The Bently Nevada* Trendmaster* Pro system links hundreds of permanently mounted transducers and measurement points onto a single-cable sensor network and transfers the data into our System 1* software. Appropriate sensors allow the system to monitor vibration, temperature, seal leaks, pressure, and other parameters.
350300 Sensor - The 350300 sensor provides dynamic (high-frequency waveform) measurements for hydro turbine or pump monitoring. It employs piezo-resistive technology to measure pressure pulsations up to 2kHz.
165855 Cylinder Pressure Transducer - The 165855 Cylinder Pressure Transducer is optimized for measuring the cyclic absolute pressure changes inside a reciprocating compressor cylinder.

Our 165855 Cylinder Pressure Transducer is optimized for measuring the cyclic absolute pressure changes inside a reciprocating compressor cylinder. It integrates with our 3500/77M Cylinder Pressure Monitor and System 1* software and must be compatible with the type of gas or fluid in which the transducer will operate. The Transducer's Tough construction provides accurate pressure readings even after extended periods of continual cycling over large pressure gradients.
The 350300 Dynamic Pressure Sensor employs piezo-resistive technology to measure pressure pulsations up to 2 kHz. The sensor detects hydraulic phenomena such as Rough Load Zone, vortexing and cavitation in the draft tube and head cover area as well as pulsations in the penstock. It can also detect cavitation and other flow instabilities that can damage machinery and operations.
