The Pressure Sensor 400 will measure absolute pressures from 0 to 400 kPa. The sensor also operates with excellent accuracy over a wide temperature range. The robust metal fittings allow for a tight, leakproof seal to your reaction apparatus. An accessories kit is included with the sensor.

Description

The Pressure Sensor 400 is the optimal sensor for conducting physical and analytical chemistry experiments, such as approximating the adiabatic expansion of a gas, Charles’ law experiments, and ideal gas law investigations. It measures absolute pressures from 0 to 400 kPa and operates with excellent accuracy over a wide temperature range. The robust metal fittings allow for a tight, leakproof seal to your reaction apparatus.

An accessories kit is included with the sensor. This kit includes

  • Double-barb brass connector to fit flexible tubing
  • Nickel plated brass push-to-connect Connector to fit more rigid tubing
  • Two-foot section of nylon tubing
  • Two-foot section of plastic tubing
  • Tightening wrenches and plumber’s tape to ensure a tight seal
