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.


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

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
