Capsule
• It is also called as aneroid.

• Two identical diaphragms are sealed at their


periphery.

• One diaphragm consists of pressure inlet.

• Another one is linked to the mechanical


member.

Capsule…

• Displacement of this member is proportional to the


difference of the inner and outer pressure.

• Two or more diaphragms are joined to form a capsule.

• All diaphragms in a capsule act in unison.

• The travel arm for a given pressure is greater than that


of single diaphragm.

Double capsule

• Large displacements are achieved by stacking


multiple capsule elements coupled in tandem.

• This is called double capsule and is shown in Fig.2.

• Material usually used is bronze or stain steel for


capsules
