Case pressure and volume

  • For gauges with ranges of 50 psia or below, maximum case pressure is 35 psig
  • Case volume is 1775 cc with overpressure relief valve built into the back of the case
  • For gauges with ranges of 100 psia and above, volume of pressure Bourdon system is 10 cc with case vented to atmosphere

Case connections

  • Below 100 psia, ⅛” female NPT, 100 psia and above, ¼” female NPT. Both have a built-in stainless steel filter and are located in the bottom of the case.

Case construction

  • Anodized aluminum with tempered-glass window, the case has special clips which make flush mounting easy, the bezel has no screw holes

Materials exposed to measured gas

  • Below 100 psia: Ni-Span C©, brass, phosphor bronze, beryllium-copper, magnesium, aluminum,nylon, 303 stainless steel, Elgiloy, soft solder, silver solder, Hypalon, synthetic sapphire, paper,epoxy cement, TFE, nickel silver, nickel plating, drawing ink, lacquer
  • 100 psia and above: stainless steel, Ni-Span C©, Easy-flow #45 brazing alloy, silver solder, nylon


  • Test, laboratory, and production applications

Product features

  • These Absolute Pressure Gauge pressure elements are capsules up to and including the 50 psia range; 100 psia and above use Bourdon tubes
  • In the 50 psia range, pressure is applied to the case and is referenced against the evacuated capsule
  • In the 100 psia and above use Bourdon tubes, pressure is applied to a Bourbon tube, which is referenced against an evacuated Bourdon
  • Available in 14 standard ranges, these gauges combine aneroid convenience with the accuracy of precision liquid columns
