Digital pressure gauge, range up to 10,000 PSI

Mico's new digital pressure gauge is reportedly designed with a pressure range of up to 10,000 PSI and is to be used in measuring hydraulic and vacuum pressures.

08/01/2011


MICO released a Digital pressure gauge, reportedly providing 1/2-percent terminal point accuracy and a standard pressure range of zero to 10,000 psi for use in measuring air, hydraulic and vacuum pressures.

The pressure range apparently complies with the ASME B40.7 standard, reducing the chance of accidental over pressure. The gauge’s proof pressure is 120-percent of the range and its burst pressure is 150-percent of the range, both figures also well within industry standards.

The terminal point accuracy eliminates sensor offset problems by allowing the zeroing of the gauge at start-up. The terminal point accuracy also includes linearity, hysteresis and repeatability, in contrast to error-prone best fit straight line accuracy on some gauges.

In addition to a zeroing button, other functions on the gauge keypad include a maximum and minimum pressure indicator, nine different engineering units of measure and a backlight for easy viewing in low light areas. The LCD display delivers pinpoint accuracy up to five digits.

The gauge is protected by a chemical resistant Noryl case and an IP54 weatherproof boot that guards against dust and splashing water. The gauge is also protected from electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency inference (RFI) and meets CE approval.

A stainless steel socket and sensor are welded together for added durability. A 12-inch hose and 36-inch hose each come with the gauge, along with a standard 16-piece fitting kit. Each gauge is coded with a serial number so the product can be accurately traced.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
