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
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.
