Gauge Types

Industrial Gauges : Industrial quality heavy-duty sensing elements and case designs, typically used in more demanding applications. These gauges usually have greater accuracy requirements than general purpose gauges. The industrial stainless steel type gauge is built for extended life and designed for harsh corrosive environments.

Commercial Gauges : Often referred to as general purpose or equipment gauges. Though commercial gauges may have to be ruggedly constructed, the service conditions are not expected to be severe. Designed for low cost without refinements, they are frequently referred to as hrow-away?gauges since it is not economical to attempt repairs on this type of gauge. Most commercial gauges have a black ABS or painted steel case with brass internal parts and connection.

Process Gauges : Process gauges combine the heavy-duty operating and construction requirements of industrial gauges with the more exacting accuracy and service life demands of many process applications. Designed for the chemical and petroleum processing industries, the cases (typically 4-1/2? are made of corrosion resistant thermoplastic and offer a solid front/blow out back safety case design.

Digital Gauges : Industrial quality gauges with a digital display of the pressure or vacuum being measured. Digital readings are generally easier to read, faster, and more accurate than standard dial type pressure gauges. Digital gauges are typically battery powered.

Precision & Test Gauges : Dial type test gauges are cost effective, extremely sensitive and highly accurate. These gauges are excellent for instrument shops, gauge repair and calibration shops, testing laboratories and other applications demanding precision and consistent results. Test gauges feature adjustable knife-edge pointers and mirror bands on the dial to assure precise readings.

Low Pressure Gauges : Low pressure gauges utilize a capsule sensing element design and accurately measure pressures less than 15 PSIG. Typical measuring units are inches of water, mm of water, oz/sq inch, and pounds per square inch.

Specialty Gauges : Special gauges designed for specific applications. Like fire extinguisher pressure gauge, gas test gauge, water test gauge, ammonia pressure gauge, refrigeration pressure gauge, tire gauge, electric contact pressure gauge etc.
