A pressure gauge is a device that is used to measure the pressure of a fluid in a piping system or vessel. It typically consists of a gauge dial that displays the pressure reading and a bourdon tube or other sensing element that responds to changes in the pressure of the fluid.
Pressure gauges are commonly used in a wide range of industrial, commercial, and residential applications, such as in HVAC systems, chemical processing, water treatment, and oil and gas production. They are used to monitor and control the pressure of fluids in a variety of systems, including hydraulic and pneumatic systems, boilers, and pressure vessels.
Pressure gauges are available in a variety of styles and configurations, including analog gauges, digital gauges, and differential pressure gauges. They are also available in a range of pressure ratings, sizes, and materials to suit different applications.
In addition to measuring pressure, some pressure gauges also include additional features such as alarms, limit switches, and recording capabilities. These features can be used to alert operators of abnormal pressure conditions or to provide a record of pressure readings over time.
Overall, pressure gauges are an important tool for monitoring and controlling fluid pressure in a wide range of applications. They are essential for maintaining the safe and efficient operation of many industrial processes, and are available in a variety of styles and configurations to suit the specific needs of a particular system.
