They are a stalwart of any system where the measurement of pressure is involved and can be used in a wide range of applications, from measuring the pressure of air in car tyres, right through to the accurate differential pressure measurement of highly toxic gases on a petrochemical refinery.
The two main types of gauges are liquid filled and dry pressure gauges. Liquid pressure gauges are also commonly known as glycerine filled pressure gauges, as they are usually filled with a type of oil called glycerine, providing extreme accuracy when measuring pressure. Commonly used in adverse conditions, they may occasionally be filled with other types of liquid, such as silicone. On the contrary, dry pressure gauges are used in general applications and are commonly known as the ‘traditional’ form of pressure measurement.
