pressure gauge | instrument storage

How many times have you gone to the refrigerator for a glass of milk only to find it has spoiled? How about that classic car you want to drive, just to find the battery dead and tires flat? These are just two examples of how inadequate storage and lack of periodic inspections can significantly alter experiences. Your pressure gauge needs to be stored in a manner that ensures it’s in working order when you’re ready to use it. If not, it could end up damaged or out of calibration.

Thermowells | Bimetal Thermometers | thermocouple

Thermowells are essential to protecting your thermometer or temperature sensor in your high-pressure or high-temperature applications. They can protect your investment and keep your measurements accurate, no matter how extreme the environment. One of the top questions we receive here at Ashcroft from those in the temperature measurement industry is how to properly fit a thermowell. What measurements are needed? What is a u-dimension and how does it factor in? Many factors are at play, and it can be easy to get the wrong size if you aren’t paying attention.
