Bourdon offers a broad portfolio of measuring instruments which meet all relevant railway standards and are approved by numerous rail vehicle manufacturers. The measuring instruments and displays reliably monitor heating and air conditioning as well as dosing control systems for water and waste water.
Today and since decades, major global players in the railway industry trust Bourdon products for their critical pressure applications
Since 1976 Bourdon pressure gauges are used on the French high speed trains TGV
In 1969: The last steam engine in activity – the at the time world known train engine “La flèche d’or”
In 1926: Most electrical and diesel locomotives also adopted the Bourdon tube technology
In 1849: Eugène Bourdon started making pressure gauges for steam engine boilers
Aeronautics “our expertise“
For more than 40 years Bourdon has been present in civil and military aeronautics. In collaboration with our partners we have developed a high-performance range of instruments for pressure and temperature measurement. Our international recognized quality and synergies with clients led to several industry specific approvals, among others: JAR 21 G, JAR 145, AFAQ, QUALIFAS in accordance with industry standards for airborne equipment as the EUROCAE ED-14 and RTCA D0-160 for civil aviation and MIL-STD-810 for military solutions.
Our pressure and temperature measuring instruments guarantee the highest reliability reducing downtime to the minimum. Designed for operation in harsh environments with strong vibrations and aggressive seawater they are specified and installed in several vessels and ships.
Bourdon vibration resistant measuring instruments are a preferential solutions for local pressure and temperature reading in marine engines and ships auxiliary systems. All stainless steel industrial and solid front pressure gauges guarantee accurate pressure measurement from power generation to water distribution and several auxiliary marine systems.
Bourdons mechanical thermometers designs contribute to accurate reading, combined with one piece barstock thermowells to withstand ships and vessels high vibrations. Our products offer longer lifetime than average measuring instruments, guaranteeing efficient operations and maintenance costs reduction throughout the entire ship lifetime.
