I am having problems performing reliable measurements using MPX2050DP.
I am trying to measure the pressure increase when flowing a fluid through a porous material. I have attached a schematic drawing of my set up: fluid is flown from the top using a pump; The sensor is connected through a small opening and a tube to measure the pressure, while the other inlet is left open to atmospheric pressure.
However, when I try to do this with dense materials the fluid prefers to take the easier path of flowing through the tube connected to the pressure sensor.
I was wondering if you could suggest a better way to use the sensor to solve this problem, or another product that might be better suited for the application.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
