Single-Use Pressure Sensor – New Alternative!

single-use pressure sensor gauge

Our team at TBL is extremely proud to launch our aSURE™ instrument fitting, which was developed to provide a closed barrier between a fluid path and the external environment. This allows users to use gamma irradiation or other sterilization methods to sterilize an assembly, then install a pressure gauge at the point of use. The fitting is perfect for disposable manifolds and tubing assemblies used on hybrid single-use process skids and other equipment.

Fixed or tethered pressure-monitoring devices provide extremely high accuracy and are often hard-wired into a central control panel. The aSURE™ instrument fitting provides a practical means of providing a protective barrier on a complex manifold set without the need to have a gauge present during the sterilization process.

When comparing our aSURE™ fitting system to single-use pressure sensor technology, single-use sensors have many important drawbacks.

Drawbacks of Single-Use Pressure Sensors

  • Proprietary equipment required to relay the proper signal in to existing control systems
  • Generation of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)
  • Unable to use preferred pressure sensor in process

Benefits of the New aSURE™ Instrument Fitting

  • Use the pressure gauge of your choice on a single-use system
  • No need for gauge to be installed during sterilization process
  • No generation of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)
  • No proprietary monitor or transmitter/ line conditioning required
  • Integrate gauges from Anderson-Negele, WIKA, REOTEMP, Emerson Instruments, & Endress+Hauser
