July 20, 2017 — The adjustable red/green zone dial face on the new pressure and vacuum gauges from Festo provide a visual cue when a pressure or vacuum system is out of green-zone operation. Red/green zone dial-face adjustability allows a unified visual warning system to be applied across a range of processes for quicker recognition of issues. Festo designed these new gauges to be visible and easily understood.
Red indicator bands on the high and low end of the green zone are adjusted to delineate the upper and lower boundaries of safe operation for each pressure or vacuum system the gauge is applied to. The red band, covering the entire out-of-specification zone on the dial face, makes deviations from acceptable conditions visible. This type of monitoring/warning system is suitable for all personnel, including those new to the plant.
Gauges feature dual displays: Psi/bar for pressure; bar/InHg for vacuum. Various pressure range gauges are available with the maximum pressure at 150 psi/10 bar. The maximum for vacuum is -1 bar/30InHg. Apply these red/green-zone pressure and vacuum gauges to inert gases. Operating temperatures range between -40°F (-40°C) to 140°F (60°C). Gauges can be ordered with either NPT or BSPT pneumatic connections and with back or bottom mounting position.
