Advantages, disadvantages and applications of piezoelectric pressure transducer

There are some advantages of piezoelectric pressure transducer which are given below,

  • Rugged construction and small size.
  • Excellent frequency response.
  • High output with negligible phase shift.

There are some disadvantages of piezoelectric pressure transducer which are given below,

  • Piezoelectric crystals are water soluble. Hence in a high humidity environment gets dissolved.
  • It can be used for dynamic measurement only.
  • Temperature sensitive.

There are some applications of piezoelectric pressure transducer which are given below,

  • It is used for measurement of non electrical quantities such as acceleration, vibration sound intensity and dynamic pressure.
  • It is used in ultrasonic, non-destructive test equipments, ultrasonic flow meters, micro motion actuators.
  • It is used in spark ignition engines.
