What You Need to Know About Low Pressure Capsule Gauges

Understanding the applications of your instruments is vital, especially when it comes to low pressure capsule gauges. For this reason, we are taking the time to help you understand when and how you use this tool.


When to use this device

Firstly, it’s important to detail that capsule operated pressure gauges are only suited to use for air or gas systems with temperatures only up to 60 degrees Celsius. The major use for this device is to get a precise low-pressure measurement, exclusively for gaseous substances. 


Most commonly, you will see these applied in low pressure pneumatic systems, overpressure monitoring, vacuum pumps, and other areas where there needs to be precise measurement of air escaping. They also have noncorrosive applications and can be offered with stainless steel wetted parts if needed.


Understanding how they work

Since the 1920’s, capsule gauges like this have been used for monitoring.

These low pressure capsule gauges got their name due to their inside structure. There are two internal pockets which act similarly to lungs and allows gas to be measured as the pressure changes with these pockets either contracting or expanding. As this change is detected, a deflection lever is activated and that allows the rotary movement to display the reading on the gauges front.

The nature of this tool allows for a precise reading to take place, making it a great option for you.
