    Technical Director Diaphragm Seals
    WIKA USA
    For the most part of my professional career (30 years plus) I was involved in design, production and applying pressure systems involving diaphragm seals. In particular the application of this technology is part of my expertise. In a lot of industrial manufacturing diaphragm seals are helping in difficult measuring solutions. Particular corrosion and temperature problems can be supported with this technology. The variety of tasks and issues are endless in upstream, downstream, sanitary, power and food processing among others. Specification details, supporting documentation and industrial standards on a global basis allowing a wide variety of support. An overall knowledge about pressure gauge in general and particular pressure instrumentation such as process transmitters is required in order to design practical solutions. Demonstrating these duties for our customers is my commitment and challenge on a daily basis.
