The standard Ashcroft® test pressure gauge case style features a solid-front aluminum case with a hinged ring.
The dial has a polished mirror band for pointer reflection to prevent parallax error and is available in 4.5", 6" and 8.5" dial sizes in both lower and back connection. Pointer is a balanced-friction adjustable design with red knife edge tip for easy reading. The standard Ashcroft test pressure gauge is competitively priced and available from stock for most ranges, tube materials and case sizes.
With a pressure accuracy of ±0.5%, Grade 2A, plus rugged stainless steel construction, the Ashcroft® Type 1084 test pressure gauge more than exceeds the requirements for on-the-spot inspections. To improve accuracy, stability and socket thread life, the bourdon tube and socket assembly is made of type 316 stainless steel with all-welded construction; this system is standard for all ranges.
To make test gauge reading easier and faster, each unit is provided with a new, highly readable dial. Reading error caused by parallax is eliminated by aligning the knife-edge tip pointer with its reflection in the mirror band on the dial. Also available is a stainless steel cover that fits securely over the window and protects the gauge from damage while being carried in a tool box or pocket. An attractive, cushioned Nylon fabric pouch with carrying strap is offered as standard equipment.
