The Rosemount 3051 pressure transmitter is used across a wide range of industries and applications. It is one of the few options in pressure transmitters that is designed to be used in the most demanding of situations, including in applications where high process and ambient heat or extreme cold is a factor. It is also the go-to option when high humidity or the presence of moisture in the environment is a factor.

In general, the Rosemount 3051 pressure transmitter is often the component of choice in hazardous operations, including where explosion-proof components have to be used to maintain safety standards. The housing itself is designed to protect the internal sensors and the LED display, ensuring a long duty cycle and limited maintenance requirements.

Connection to the System

As with any type of pressure transmitter, it is essential to follow the supplied Rosemount installation manual when determining where and how to place the transmitter in the system.

Modifying or using unapproved connections to the system or using additional components to complete the installation can result in lower levels of reading accuracy. Whenever possible, use the most direct method of coupling the transmitter to the system as per the installation instructions.

Know System Highs and Lows

Ideally, any system has very limited peaks and valley when it comes to process variations. In reality, these variations do occur, and the Rosemount 3051 pressure transmitter is able to measure these changes with accuracy.

It will be important to know both the variations in the system as well as the transmitters stability. By investing in the 3051 pressure transmitter, a high level of stability is possible over a long duty cycle, meaning a limited shift or drift even over extended periods of time. Correct installation and configuration are critical in maintaining stability over extended durations of use.
