When you are researching pressure gauges for your pressure measurement needs, consider these factors: What is the application? How much pressure is involved? What size dial should you buy? What is the gauge accuracy requirement?
Your process pressure instruments play a critical role in your applications. They accurately and reliably measure and monitor pressure to determine if process systems are working effectively and efficiently, or if you need to make system alterations or adjustments. This helps ensure the safety of your personnel, the efficiency of your processes and the quality of your products.

Welcome to the Ashcroft blog! We’ve got an important topic to discuss with you today: the overpressure protection option available on our T6500 XRA pressure gauge. Why is this option so important? Because it shields the instrument against overpressure buildup in the system – and can withstand overpressure up to four times the measurement portion of the range. These gauges, also known as retard gauges, are excellent fits for process and industrial applications – particularly those where pressure spikes or overpressure beyond measurement portion of the pressure ranges can occur. An example is the opening or closing of a valve. Pipeline overpressure, faulty regulators, process components (compressor, reciprocating pumps) and other factors can also contribute to this.
