Conduct hydrostatic-pressure tests with this pressure gage

The Crystal XP2i Digital Pressure Gage (photo) is an easy-to-use, rugged, digital gage that is used to both read and document hydrostatic pressure tests, offering precise, reliable information to ensure safety. The standard XP2i is designed for the rough, in-the-field environments in which many pipelines are located. They are temperature compensated, so the accuracy of the gages will not be degraded if it’s used between –10 to 50°C (14 to 122°F). For users looking to record the data collected from their testing, the XP2i with optional DataLoggerXP upgrade records up to 32,000 data points (as fast as one reading per second). Free software downloads the information to a spreadsheet for easy storage and accessibility. — Ametek Sensors, Test, & Calibration, San Luis Obispo, Calif.
