These pressure gages are now equipped for 400% overpressure

| By Mary Page Bailey

This company’s 1209 solid-front stainless-steel pressure gage (photo) is now available with the new XRA option, which allows the gage to accommodate up to 400% overpressure without damaging the gage. In applications where pressure spikes, surges and waterhammer are a possibility, option XRA reduces the need for an external pressure-limiting valve while extending gage capacity. The 1209 is also available with optional liquid-fill or the patented PLUS Performance option to dampen shock, vibration and pulsation. The devices also come with IP65-rated weather protection, and are socket-welded for leak integrity. — Ashcroft Inc., Stratford, Conn.
