Pressure Gauges INDUMART PRESSURE GAUGES Back to Literature

This section of our catalogue is designed to categorize all Indumart pressure gauges to make it easier for our customers to order
exactly the type of pressure gauge they need. For a careful selection of your required pressure gauge the follo!ing
specifications must "e stated#
Pressure Range
%ange of the selected pressure gauge should "e a"out t!ice the normal operating pressure of the process. The maximum
operating pressure should not exceed &'( of the full scale range. Failure to select a gauge !ithin these criteria may ultimately
result in fatigue failure of the Bourdon Tu"e.
Indumart standard pressure ranges are in psi and "ar scales. )ther pressure units such as kpa *Pa in.+,) m+,) in.+g
kg-cm and m"ar are also a.aila"le. Follo!ing ta"les sho! the standard pressure ranges for /0/ shaped Bourdon tu"e and
helical Bourdon tu"e systems. For other pressure systems check their data sheets.

Pressure Element
Indumart offers pressure elements in a !ide .ariety of materials such as "rass phosphor "ronze 314L stainless steel and
5monel. 2ince the pressure element is in direct contact !ith the process fluid chemical compati"ility of the fluid !ith the
pressure element must "e checked. If the correct material is not a.aila"le the use of a diaphragm seal may "e necessary to
protect the system from the process fluid.
6dditionally the pressure range should also "e considered for selection of the pressure element. Ta"le 7 sho!s .arious types of

penetrations. The IP code al!ays consists of the letters IP follo!ed "y a t!o digit num"er. The first digit represents protection
against penetration of solid foreign o"@ects !hile the second digit indicates resistance against liquid penetration.
For safe installation pressure restrictors relief .al.es pressure regulators chemical seals pulsation dampeners or snu""ers
syphons manifolds and other similar items are a.aila"le.
Pr"!ess Temperature
6n important piece of information for selecting the correct pressure gauge is the profile of the process temperature. For proper
operation of the selected pressure gauges it is essential that the gauge stand the maximum temperature of the process.
6nother "enefit of kno!ing the process temperature is estimation of the accuracy of the pressure measurement. 6ccuracies of
pressure gauges are usually expressed at the reference temperature of ,=B0. Fariations of process temperature alters the
accuracies of Indumart pressure gauges as follo!#
is the am"ient temperature in B0 and t
is the reference temperature in B0
6ny o.er$pressure creates stress in the pressure sensing element and consequently reduces the life and accuracy of the
pressure gauge. It is therefore al!ays prefera"le to use a pressure gauge !ith a maximum scale .alue greater than the
maximum !orking pressure to a"sor" o.er$pressure and surges more easily. 2urges can "e handled in the same !ay as
pressure pulses.
2pecifying o.er$pressure for a pressure gauge means that the sensing element !ill only !ithstand that pressure for a short
period of time. Ese of an o.er$range protection unit is highly recommended for sol.ing the o.er$pressure pro"lem.

S-"!ks an( Pulsati"n
<here pressure shocks and pulsations cause the pointer of the pressure gauge to .i"rate use of a liquid$filled pressure gauge is
recommended. Liquid filled pressure gauges are specifically designed for se.er ser.ice applications. <hen immersed in glycerin
all mo.ing parts of the pressure gauge are lu"ricated and dampened from the harmful effects of .i"ration and pulsation.
Liquid filled pressure gauges are !ildly used for agricultural equipments hydraulic equipments pressure !ashers oil field
equipments pumps compressors and other systems !hich may experience pressure shocks and .i"rations.
