Pirani Gauges Pirani Gauges 
Active sensor, robust and compact, ideal for non-corrosive applications in the chemical industry, in vacuum metallurgy, PVD, and CVD. With the combination of the Pirani principle and the diaphragm gauge a higher precision at p>10mbar can be achieved. This active sensor is suitable for the use up to 1500 mbar, especially for applications in vacuum metallurgy, electron beam welding, PVD und CVD.
