Importance of Pressure and Temperature Instruments for Medical Health and Safety Equipment
As indicated above, medical, health, and personal safety equipment must be designed and built to ensure the health and safety of end-users. The instruments integrated into such equipment—such as pressure or temperature transducers, gauges, and switches—help equipment operators measure and monitor system conditions to ensure they remain within a safe range. However, they must meet demanding performance requirements—particularly with regard to accuracy, reliability, and longevity—even under harsh environmental and operating conditions. Additionally, given the sensitive or critical nature of such equipment, they must accommodate sanitary requirements to ensure the application area remains free from contamination.
