Our instruments are designed to perform reliably even in the harshest conditions, for the wellhead, offshore rig and shale field. With NACE compliant gauges, seals and SIL capable switches, you can trust our field-proven pressure instruments to provide the accurate and reliable measurements necessary to avoid failures and protect equipment, personnel and the environment.
On the tank car, at the transfer station and all along the pipeline, from the first pump station to the last, Ashcroft has the answer for every midstream application. Our pressure and temperature instrumentation is the answer to monitor and control flow ensuring critical equipment and to assure staff are safe from over-pressurization and other challenges.
Aggressive media, sour gas and other corrosives can be contained with our NACE approved, and SIL capable instruments. We provide pre-assembled instrument/diaphragm seal combinations to ensure that caustics will not threaten your operation or personnel. Innovative product features further enhance safety and efficiency by offering high readability in high pulsation and vibration environments.
Water and Wastewater
Municipal & Industrial, Wastewater Process, Mining Water Treatment, Deionized Water
Water service is one of the most critical functions of any community. Much is at stake, from the health and safety of the community to the functioning of business. People depend on clean, fresh water every time they open the tap. But it’s no easy task. Filtration, pressure, flow and level all require precise, continuous monitoring and control. At the same time, instruments must overcome corrosive medium, effluents, solids, vibration and pulsation to constantly provide accurate measurements that prevent shutdowns and dangerous conditions.
At Ashcroft, our goal is to ensure safe, reliable process operation. That’s why we’ve developed unique solutions for the Water and Waste-water industry that proactively avert problems and comply with regulatory standards. Our diaphragm seal and isolation rings safeguard critical instruments against concentrated fluoride, chlorine, ozone and many other aggressive media. An Ashcroft rangeable transmitter is ideal for water tower measurement. Easy adjustment allows the transmitter to output a precisely scaled flow while eliminating unwanted fluid head pressure from the reading.

Production means revenue, efficient processes mean profit. We’ll do our part so you can have both. With our durable pressure instrumentation, we’ll help you keep your mill running at optimum capacity. We understand the unique hazards of measuring the pressure of caustic chemicals, and the safety requirements established to protect operators and equipment. In the constant search for process improvements, Ashcroft is a great place to start.
With a choice of robust wetted materials, our pressure switches and gauges can directly monitor a variety of challenging media. In extreme conditions, diaphragm seals will ensure compatibility with black liquor and other harsh chemicals, while our isolation rings make it possible for slurries to pass through pipelines without fouling the pressure measuring instruments. With these devices in place, down-time due to corrosion and clogging can be quickly eliminated.
