Three new pressure gauges are available for general use. They are the 6V2044 Gauge for 0-600 psi (0-4150 kPa), the 6V2045 Gauge for 0-5000 psi (0-34500 kPa), and the 6V2046 Gauge for 0-7500 psi (0-52000 kPa).
These gauges are filled with glycerin, a product which is available at most pharmacies around the world. This fluid-filled, bottom mount design gives the gauges more resistance to shock, vibration and pulsation. They have cast brass bodies, and a brass ring which gives the plexiglass dial cover protection against scratches.
All three gauges have white dials with dual scales--black for pounds per square inch (psi) and green for kilopascals (kPa). The bottom mount connections have 1/4-NPT threads and each gauge has a safety valve.
Repairs and recalibration of these gauges are available in the United States from:
16965 Vincennes Avenue
P. O. Box 40
South Holland, Il 60473
Current cost of this service is approximately $8.00 and each group of gauges must have a purchase order with it. Dealers will be told if the gauge is beyond repair at this cost.
Repairs outside the United States are available at WIKA dealers. Costs and services will be different from country to country.
