The chemical industry develops and manufactures many substances and products which are designed to make life easier for us. The requirements that apply to systems and equipment in this area are as varied and individual as the products themselves.
As a result of global industrialisation and increasing mobility, the demand for crude oil and natural gas continues to grow. As the amount of oil and gas produced increases, so too does the need for transportation and further processing facilities.
STS pressure transducers and transmitters are manufactured to meet the most demanding test and measurement specifications for the aviation industry. The product portfolio includes absolute, gauge (relative) pressure and miniature pressure sensors.
Many global shipyards and shipping companies rely on STS level sensors for the monitoring of water, waste water and fuel tanks - particularly in ballast tank applications. STS is a major supplier in this segment due to the high reliability of its sensors and the ability to manufacture them from titanium.
STS designs and manufactures a wide variety of pressure transducers and transmitters for oil and gas applications, including onshore, offshore and subsea. Our sensors have both explosion-proof and intrinsically safe certifications, they provide the required precision and long term stability in this challenging environment.
While accurate measurements must be taken in order to monitor processes and measure precisely, considerable demands are placed on the materials and surfaces. STS pressure transmitters for applications in the chemical / petrochemical industry offer remarkable precision, reliability and resistance when exposed to an extremely wide range of temperatures and aggressive media.
The pressure sensors in mining equipment must be robust, reliable and accurate. STS solutions can be found in hydraulic monitoring, pressure and temperature measurements in explosion endangered zones, and groundwater monitoring.
STS pressure transmitters and transducers are ideal for a variety of applications in machines and plant construction. Sensors from STS are installed on the harbour doors of Rotterdam Port, which protect the city against storm tides. STS has many years of experience in process automation of hydraulic monitoring and in plant construction.
The development and optimization of new engines and machines requires extensive tests to take the next step. STS produces easily customizable, highly precise pressure sensor technology for a great variety of applications for test facilities and prototyping.
