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.
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?

Pressure gauges are often used in challenging environments where they could be exposed to extreme temperatures that may damage them or impact their accuracy.
Your mechanical pressure gauge can measure a variety of pressures depending on your application. And not just positive pressure, either. There are requirements for gauges that measure both positive pressure and negative pressure, also known as a gauge with a compound range or scale.
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.
