Pressure gauges, alternatively spelled as pressure gage […]
Pressure gauges, alternatively spelled as pressure gages, are instruments used to measure and display the pressure of a gas or liquid inside a closed system or vessel. They are capable of working with various liquids and gases.
Pressure gauges monitor and indicate the internal pressure of vessels or systems, especially those having dynamic working characteristics that require constant monitoring. They are essential to applications in which the accurate functioning of a pressure vessel or system directly depends on the accuracy of the gauge reading.
Pressure gauges are utilized in a wide variety of industrial systems and products, including: specialty tanks (such as fire extinguishers and medical gas cylinders), high purity semiconductor gas and liquid products, tire pressure gauging, pressure canners, pesticide sprayers and nitrous systems (on nitrous bottles or solenoids).
The materials used to make pressure gauges must be strong and durable, and able to stand up to tough environments. The material that manufacturers use most commonly is stainless steel.
Stainless steel is perfect for corrosion resistant units, units that require high pressure cleaning and gauges to be used where chemicals or harsh substances need to be looked after and monitored. Also, gauges made of stainless steel can be used in applications that have strict sanitary requirements (sanitary pressure gauges).
