If you work in any industry that uses pressure and temperature instrumentation to keep your process applications running safely and efficiently, there's a good chance you are familiar with Ashcroft gauges or sensors. That's because Ashcroft has been making pressure and temperature measurement instruments since its inception more than 170 years ago.
