Pressure gauges, bi-metal industrial thermometers
The ProSense line from AutomationDirect added mechanical dial pressure gauges and bi-metal thermometers designed for industrial and commercial processes.
ProSense mechanical dial pressure gauges from AutomationDirect are available in a variety of configurations for use in most pneumatic, hydraulic, HVAC, plumbing, industrial and commercial applications. These gauges use Bourdon tube sensing elements and do not require any external power sources to operate. Center back mount and lower mount cases are available in durable steel or stainless steel and in either dry or liquid filled to dampen vibration and pulsations. Brass wetted parts are suitable for air, oil, or water applications while stainless steel wetted parts are available for corrosive applications. Dual marked dial faces (psi/kPa or inHg/kPa) are available in pressure ranges from vacuum up to 6,000 psi.
The ProSense bi-metal thermometers are general purpose thermometers ideal for applications such as, industrial process, hot/chilled water lines, boilers, HVAC, food processing and wastewater. Constructed of 304 stainless steel, thermometers are available in three-inch dials with center back mounts and five-inch dials with adjustable angle mounts. Both styles feature a bi-metallic sensing element, a dual scale (F/C) and re-zero adjustment screws. Models are available with welded stem lengths ranging from 2.5-in. up to nine inches.

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
