The Customer: manufacturer of shipboard auxiliary systems

The Industry: Ship & Yacht Building

The Application: Fuel System Monitoring

  • 0-350 PSIG at the pump discharge
  • Increase or decrease in pressure can indicate a fuel line blockage

Why the Customer Picked PDD

  • Switch plus indicator allowed the user to visually monitor pressures during operation
  • The PDD “DUO” function allowed the switch to alarm on increase or decrease in pressure
  • We modified the fitting to SAE #4
  • Customer liked the stainless steel housing and larger display over the IFM Effector design
