How can I keep the water out of my transmitters in washdown conditions?

Earlier this week, I took a call from a customer having problems with his pressure transmitter. He’d figured out that his last transmitter, installed in an area with nearly continuous wash-downs, had failed because of water intrusion. The bigger problem was that it wasn’t coming from a loose cover, a conduit pipe, or a leaky conduit connection. In his case, the water came into the transmitter through a vent hole and messed up the measurement cell electronics.
So he asked me to recommend a 3000 PSI transmitter that could survive the washdown conditions.
