Ashcroft's Blog

Welcome to our Blog page. Our mission is to provide you with technical information that will help you better understand our pressure and temperature instruments. These blogs will provide knowledge and information that will help guide you to make the correct selection of instruments for your industries and applications.

Blog Feature

pressure gauge | ultra high pressure

Water jet or water blaster applications require specialized equipment to handle the ultra-high pressure involved. If you’re using pressure instruments not designed to handle up to 100,000 psi, you could damage your equipment and disrupt your process. Ensure you have the right tool for the job with Ashcroft’s new T6500 ultra-high-pressure gauge, specially made for applications using pressurized water to clean surfaces.

pressure gauge | ultra high pressure

Pressure gauges for 40,000 psi and above are critical for numerous applications where monitoring extremely high system pressures is a required safety precaution. Such gauges must be manufactured so they can withstand the rugged conditions they will be exposed to at these extremely high pressures.

Thermowells | coated thermowell

Thermowells are used to protect your temperature measurement instruments from the elements, which means they are often exposed to extreme environments and temperatures. Protecting the thermowell can help keep your temperature instruments safe and your application running. But how do you protect an instrument that’s designed to protect other instruments?

RTD | thermocouple

Not every application is the same, so you need to get the right equipment for your specific needs. When it comes to temperature measurement, inaccurate readings can severely impact your process. So, how can you ensure you are correctly and reliably monitoring temperature?

pressure transducers | accuracy

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are a critical part of a building’s operation. They ensure that an indoor environment is comfortable for occupants by controlling humidity, temperature and air quality. However, the cost of running these systems can be a concern for building owners as inefficiencies in an HVAC system could increase building management costs, especially if the pressure sensors used to monitor and control the system are not accurate.

measurement instrument accessories | instrument assembly

Instrument assemblies can help protect your equipment and ensure reliable and accurate pressure readings of your process. Assemblies that include accessories such as diaphragm seals, capillary, pulsation dampeners and Ashcroft type 2198 and 1198 siphons can help mitigate extreme effects, including high temperature, pulsation and vibration. Along with dissipating these effects, diaphragm seals/instrument isolators can prevent clogging of the instrument from a dirty process. A seal is also available in many wetted materials for compatibility with the process, making them a popular choice to mount to instruments. But what is a welded instrument assembly and when is it appropriate to use one?
