WIKA_Subsea

Bourdon Tube Pressure Gauge
Model 233.34

Subsea Gauge - Stainless Steel
Type 233.34 - Special

Applications

  • Subsea environments: tested to working depths of 10,000 ft. of sea water
  • Suitable for corrosive environments and gaseous or liquid media that will not obstruct the pressure system

Special Features

  • Excellent load-cycle stability and shock resistance
  • Solid front thermoplastic case
  • Positive pressure ranges to 30,000 psi
  • Black dial face with white enlarged numerals for subsea visualization
  • Optional easy-to-assemble Lexan Shield kit for extra protection

Standard Features

Design
ASME B40.100

Sizes
4½" (115 mm) dial size

Accuracy class
± 0.5% of span (ASME B40.100 Grade 2A)
± 1.0% of span (ASME B40.100 Grade 1A)
(for 20,000 psi range and above)

Temperature error
Additional error when temperature changes from reference
temperature of 68°F (20°C) ±0.4% for every 18°F (10°C) rising
or falling. Percentage of span.

Operating temperature
Ambient: -4°F to +150°F (-20°C to +66°C) - glycerine filled
Medium: max. +212°F (+100°C) (See Note 1 on reverse)

Ranges
Customized for subsea applications: standard ranges from
5,000 psi to 30,000 psi

Case
Black fiberglass-reinforced thermoplastic (POCAN)
Solid front, blowout back
Turret-style case with built in rear flange lugs

Window
Dual pane safety glass (increases stability/integrity and
minimizes deflection from external seawater pressure)

Note 1: The maximum continuous media temperature for the WIKA Subsea gauge is 212°F (130°C) with intermittent maximum media temperature limits of 250°F (130°C). The user should also consider temperature error and gauge component degradation when exposing the gauge to any media or ambient temperature above 212°F. For continuous use in either ambient or media temperatures above 212°F, a diaphragm seal or other heat dissipating means is recommended. Consult factory for technical inquiries and application assistance.
