Hydraulic Pressure Comparator and Pressure Gauge Include Leak-Free Crystal Pressure Fittings
Ametek Crystal Engineering has launched a new hydraulic pressure comparator with safety features and a high-pressure version of its XP2i test gauge. Both the GaugeCalHP pressure comparator and high-pressure XP2i test gauge are rated to 15 000 psi/1,000 bar/100 MPa.
The GaugeCalHP is suitable for test and calibration use with water or oil, either in the field or the laboratory. Key features include a fine adjust that was designed for easy use at 15,000 psi and a connection fitting with quick alignment swivel capability. A pivoting manifold rotates to fit large-size gauges. To increase stability, the device’s reservoir can add a small amount of pressure to bleed air out of the weep hole. A drip tray captures excess fluid.
The crystal pressure fittings add O-ring sealing for leak-free connections without tools. The self-venting weep hole alerts users before they disconnect from a pressurized system. CPF fittings and hoses come with a 4:1 safety factor.
The XP2i pressure gauge is now available for pressures up to 15,000 psi. Key features include IP-67 rated, marine-grade enclosure (submersible up to 1 meter), a fast pressure safety valve (PSV) mode and a leak-free crystal pressure fitting connection. Active digital temperature compensation assures 0.1 percent of reading accuracy from -10 to 50 degrees Celsius.
