Bourdon tube pressure gauges are some of the most popular pressure measurement tools, due to their extreme precision. Invented by Eugene Bourdon, this gauge design has been used since 1849, illustrating its effectiveness and accuracy. The bourdon tube is available in a C, helical or spiral design, and forms the basis of most mechanical pressure gauges. The bourdon pressure gauge is both durable and versatile, hence their popularity.
Bourdon type pressure gauges have two main advantages, their repeatability and hysteresis. Repeatability refers to the ability of the Bourdon tube type pressure gauge to accurately and consistently repeat the same measurement in conditions that remain the same while hysteresis measures the effectivity of the gauge in repeating the upscale reading on the down scale cycle. Pressure gauges with the bourdon design are able to measure a range of pressure, including differential, absolute, seal and gauge.
