Using the basic design of Dwyer’s time-proven Magnehelic® gage, the Capsuhelic® gage contains a simple, frictionless movement that permits full scale readings as low as 0.5 in w.c. The pressure being measured is held within a capsule which is an integral part of the gage. This containment of the pressure permits the use of the gage on system pressures of up to 500 psig, even when differentials to be read are less than 0.1 in w.c.
The diaphragm-actuated Capsuhelic® gage requires no filling liquid which might limit its outdoor applications. Zero and range adjustments are made from outside the gage, and there is no need to disassemble the gage in normal service.
Note: May be used with Hydrogen. Order a Buna-N diaphragm. Pressures must be less than 35 psi.
