Superior Control on the Factory Floor or Job Site
Activate, monitor and adjust processes across a wide range of general industries with electronic and mechanical pressure switches, pressure transducers, temperature switches and zero-leak valves from Barksdale.
Overcome fluctuating loads and uneven terrain with height control valves for self-propelled fertilizer sprayers, planters and central pivot irrigation systems. Our Shear-Seal® technology ensures your pressure and level sensors can withstand harsh environments, such as ice and freezing temperatures and vibration due to uneven terrain and harsh chemicals. Pressure switches are also ideal for dependable pump control.
From aerial lifts and cranes to forklifts and mining machinery, if your equipment digs, lifts or conveys, Barksdale provides instrumentation and controls that maximize efficiency and safety. We provide level, pressure and temperature sensors, as well as switches and valves for stationary and mobile hydraulic and pneumatic applications. For example, Barksdale pressure switches and transducers are utilized to reliably control and safely raise and lower the work platforms on top of aerial or scissor lifts. Our complete line of products is designed to meet critical pressure and monitoring requirements unique to construction and mining applications.
For material-handling systems, work-holding equipment and process automation on any factory floor that requires superior control, Barksdale provides mechanical and electronic pressure, temperature and level switches and valves that maximize efficiency and safety. In machine tools, for example, Barksdale instrumentation and controls withstand extended exposure to fluctuating temperatures, excessive vibration and abrasive or corrosive media. We also provide fit-for-purpose solutions for pumps and compressors, pulp and paper mills, test equipment, filtration, press machines, metal and steel mills, plastic injection molding, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
Safely and reliably control hydraulic systems for lifting, tilting and packing refuse and recyclables in all weather conditions. Barksdale pressure and temperature switches and valves monitor enhance the efficiency and reliability of balers, compactors and refuse collection vehicles.
From engine monitoring to level control in the bilge, Barksdale’s precisely engineered products, backed with the certification of GL- approval, can withstand extreme marine conditions in commercial and military applications. Our electronic pressure switches and level switches can handle typical marine conditions such as liquids containing particulates or other foreign material, corrosive environments, high pressures and temperatures in addition to turbulence and vibration. Speed switches and scanners monitor a range of engine parameters, delivering dependable overspeed protection and other safeguards.
When lives and high-quality medical care depend on it, Barksdale instrumentation and controls provide superior reliability and safety in medical gas delivery systems and ventilators. We provide a broad range of precision level, pressure and flow sensors that are ideally suited for measuring, monitoring and controlling hydraulic and pneumatic medical equipment and systems. Examples include hospital laboratory analytics instruments, medical lasers, water systems, respiratory care, medical gas monitor, x-ray machines and surgical systems.
Reliable instrumentation and controls from Barksdale, such as heavy-duty pressure switches and transducers, are integrated into power generation and distribution equipment, enabling companies to efficiently and safely generate and transmit energy from diversified sources such as natural gas, compressed natural gas (CNG), liquified natural gas (LPG) and hydrogen. Energy producers also use Barksdale speed sensors and predictive diagnostics solutions to maintain the health of engines, generators, compressors and other critical equipment.
