Pressure Measurement & Calibration

Pressure is a vital parameter in millions of industrial processes and applications today

When it comes to pressure sensing, the Druck product and services range from Baker Hughes, a GE company, embodies over 40 years of experience designing and manufacturing some of the most accurate and reliable pressure measurement solutions on the market. BHGE’s Druck range of pressure technologies gives you peace of mind that you are getting the reliable data you need, to make the right decisions to keep your business and equipment running safely.

Our sensing and calibration technology has been developed to support some of the most demanding, challenging and rigorous applications.  With the Druck product and service ranges from Baker Hughes, a GE company you can have the confidence that all your pressure measurement and calibration needs are covered.  Precisely.

With a long history of working with Oil and Gas, Aerospace, Automotive, Power Generation and customers from many other industries. we know what matters in pressure measurement in key industries and we build this expertise into every product that we make. From pressure sensors that control airliners' hydraulic systems to portable calibrators and software for maintaining process instrument calibration in a power plant, our pressure sensing solutions are trusted in critical application by thousands of customers where precision and reliability matter. That's why we manufacture every stage of the sensor ourselves, from etching the sensing element from raw silicon to building the final product. We believe that by controlling the entire sensing solution we can deliver the high accuracy and high stability that our customers need for their applications.

Global Manufacturing Excellence

Our pressure solutions are manufactured in the UK, Norway and China to enable us to get closer to our customers. Each facility is ISO9001 accredited and AS9100 for our aerospace business and operates under BHGE’s strict quality-control procedures. We continue to invest in advanced manufacturing techniques and processes that keep us at the forefront of product quality and efficiency.

Measurement & Sensing

What started as a small business in Leicester, UK in 1972 has now grown into a global pressure-measurement business that is recognized as a world leader in manufacturing high-quality and high-accuracy piezo-resistive pressure sensors. We serve a wide range of applications from Aerospace, Subsea, Test and Calibration and Industrial Applications with customers in over 70 countries. This is due to the fact we process the raw silicon right through to the final product. Over the past 40+ years we have developed world-class expertise in producing high-performance, high-stability, fast-responding and high-quality pressure sensors.

Brilliant Factory

We are proud that our Leicester facility has been named as a BHGE Brilliant Factory, linking data-sources
across the factory to enable us to continually improve and control our manufacturing processes. 

State-Of-The-Art Silicon Clean Room 

The heart of all of our pressure sensing solutions is the sensing element, which is manufactured from silicon wafers in our state-of-the-art clean room facility in Leicester, UK. It was completely refurbished in 2015 and is now able to process over 260 versions of silicon 24/7. Advanced robotics have more than tripled the efficiency of the silicon processing, leading to better quality and higher yields. Our Global Research facility in Niskayuna, NY, USA operates as a second source of silicon, both ensuring that we have capacity to fully meet the demands of our customers and provide a strong reliable supply chain.

Innovation

BHGE are leading innovators in pressure sensing and calibration. We are constantly pushing new frontiers 
and setting new benchmarks in performance. Through our expertise in silicon processing we have developed our Trench Etched Resonant Pressure Sensor (TERPS) technology which delivers unprecedented accuracy and stability. Our customer-focused approach to product development, ensures that we our drive to make your life easier and more productive.

Solutions

Accuracy, Reliability, Quality

Accuracy

For over 20 years, our sensors have been trusted by the World’s global airline manufacturers to measure pressure in critical on-aircraft applications such as landing gear and hydraulics measurement, engine control and fuel-management. These sensors operate in demanding environments, which see extreme temperature, humidity and pressure changes and enable the aircraft to perform efficiently and safely.

Reliability

Whether deep on the seabed in the Gulf of Mexico measuring hydrocarbon pressures and temperatures flowing through the subsea trees and manifolds or mounted on surface production equipment on an offshore-platform in the middle of the North Sea, it is in these restrictive operating conditions and harsh environments that Druck sensors and calibrators from Baker Hughes, a GE company continue to provide reliable and trusted measurement year after year.

Quality

Leading motorsport teams have used Druck pressure sensors for many years due to the performance and reliability which our sensors provide, which is of paramount importance in the motorsport arena. We are able to provide sensors which meet the demands of the size, weight and material constraints required by the teams for a variety of applications and fluids including fuels, oils, coolant and hydraulic system pressures, in demanding environments with high temperatures and vibration levels.
