A compact pressure gage system for emission control

| By Gerald Ondrey

The new Emission Control Gauge (EMICOgauge; photo) pressure-measuring system features the assembly of a model 2xx.30 pressure gage in a safety version in accordance with EN 837-1 (S3) and a valve to prevent fugitive emissions. An easily rotating adapter with a special sealing packing connects the measuring instrument and the valve. The system is fully leak-tested in accordance with the requirements of TA Luft (VDI 2440) for fugitive emissions. The EMICOgauge measures pressures from 0 to 420 bars. In the event of a fault due to high overpressure, the S-3 safety version protects the user from injury. The freely rotating swivel adapter allows 360-deg positioning of the display and easy dismounting of the measuring instrument for calibration. — WIKA Alexander Wiegand SE & Co.
