Vibration type differential pressure sensor


PURPOSE:To reduce a static pressure error by performing arithmetic operation by an arithmetic means with a signal from a measuring means so that the influence of molten metal pressure applied to a vibrator is removed. CONSTITUTION:A diaphragm 2 is formed by etching a substrate 1 anisotropically, a vibration beam 3 is arranged at its center part, and a vibration beam 4 is arranged at its fixed end part. The resonance frequency based upon the differential pressure between the vibration beams 3 and 4 is measured by the measuring means and the resonance frequency of the vibration beams 3 and 4 at the time of the application of the differential pressure is subtracted or added according to the signal of the measuring means to remove the influence of static pressure application.
