Pressure gages with enhanced protection against vibration

By Chemical Engineering |

AschroftWCThis company’s 1008S small-footprint pressure gages are available in diameters of 40 or 50 mm. A NEMA 4/IP66 water-ingress rating and a stainless-steel case allow the 1008S to be used outdoors or in harsh environments where corrosion resistance is required. Liquid fill, or the company’s patented Flutter Guard movement-enhancement option, protect the gage and make it easier to read in high-vibration installations. Reading errors are reduced due to the presence of a “zero box” instead of conventional dial pins, which ensures integrity and system control. The 1008S model is available in ranges up to 20,000 psi. — Ashcroft Inc., Stratford, Conn.
