High-Temperature Pressure Gauges

Goals

To complete some internal R&D component purchases of high-temperature pressure gauges which must be able to read nitrogen gas pressures up to 600 psi at temperatures of up to 800 degrees celsius.

Early Findings

  • While this initial research did not turn up exact matches to the pressure gauge required, there are some promising prospects to start a deeper/longer search:
    • AMETEK, Inc. reports offering a large selection of pressure gauges designed for uses in a wide range of industries and applications. Their gauges can include “special models for sprinklers, boilers, tire pressure, medical gauges, corrosion-resistant pressure gauges, and much more.“
    • MATHESON reports being a single source for industrial, bulk, specialty and electronic gases, engineering and gas management services, and more. This company offers configurable pressure gauges.
    • Accurate Speciality Gas Equipment offers subcategories of pressure gauges (i.e., Pressure Gauges 316 Stainless Steel 1/4 Female VCR, Pressure Gauges 316 Stainless Steel 1/4" NPT Male, Pressure Gauges Brass 1/4" NPT Male Lower Mount, and Pressure Gauges Monel® 1/4" NPT Male Lower Mt) that branch off into fuller selections.
    • Airgas, Inc. serves many industries including construction, manufacturing, energy/chemical, and healthcare. The company offers regulators/gauges and many other products.
    • McMaster-Carr offers several gauges that read up to 600 psi (and higher) as well as additional specialty pressure gauges.
  • SensorsONE notes that when dealing with high-temperature pressure gauges “sensitive components such as digital displays, microelectronics, and sensor elements are easily damaged by high temperatures and therefore it is necessary to introduce a method of thermal isolation between the vulnerable parts of the pressure gauge.” This company recommends adding cooling elements between the process connection and the pressure gauge.

In addition to this public search, we scanned our proprietary research database of over 1 million sources and were unable to find any specific research reports that address your goals.
