Q & A


Where are temperature gauges used?

Temperature Gauges can be used in a wide variety of applications including, power plant, domestic & industrial heating system and the pharmaceutical industry.

What is the standard dialing of a temperature gauge?

The standard dial for temperature gauges would be 0°C / 120°C or -30°C / +60°C

Can gauges be purchased outside of these ranges?

Yes, temperature gauges can be manufactured to the customer’s specific needs if required.

What is a combined pressure and temperature gauge?

Combined gauges supply a simultaneous measurement of pressure and temperature and is generally used in heating systems.

Why fill pressure gauges with Glyerine?

There are a number of reasons why pressures gauges are filled with Glycerine :

  • The glycerin absorbs any vibration and sudden pressure increases which may occur.
  • It enables the engineer to take gauge readings during conditions of vigorous loading and vibration.
  • The glycerin acts as a lubricant for all moving parts within the dial, thus reducing wear and tear of the gauge

How do I know what pressure range is required?

Pressure gauges can and will withstand the full scale pressure, but they should not continuously be used above 75% of the maximum graduation, or 65% of the maximum graduation for fluctuating pressures.

When should I calibrate my Pressure Gauge?

Recalibration of a gauge is carried out to check the accuracy of the gauge especially if used for testing purposes. The customers application and quality standard, determine the calibration frequency. In general, annual calibration of a pressure gauge is required, but where gauges are used at critical control point’s calibration may be required more often.

What pressure gauge should I use if my application is steam based?

Gauges used on gas or steam with a maximum scale graduation of over 25 bar must have safety features comprising of a baffle plate between the sensing element and dial, a splinter proof windows, blow out release at the rear.
