Analog differential pressure gage for tough applications
Handles low D/P with high static pressures and harsh process environments.
The Ashcroft Type 5503 differential pressure gauge provides reliable low differential pressure measurement in high static, wet-wet pressure applications. Available with wetted materials of 316SS, Monel, or Hastelloy C, the device is specifically designed to monitor a wide variety of caustic liquids and gases.
Two dial face versions (4 and 6 in.) are available in ranges from 0 to 100 in. of water, 0 to 3 psid, up to 0 to 400 psid, with up to 3,625 psi static pressure containment. Options include liquid fill, electrical contacts, and a choice of mounting hardware.

Annual 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.
