Penguin Gauge Guard

A gauge guard is used to isolate the internal metal parts of a pressure gauge from the process liquid dirt or corrosive effect.  A large flexible surface diaphragm is used to detect the pressure of the process and will transfer the pressure of the system to the pressure gauge.  A clean fill liquid is used between the gauge and the diaphragm.  The fill liquid is often glycerin, mineral oil or other liquid that will not corrode the internal parts of the gauge and is compatible with the other parts of the guard.  Accuracy is dependent upon the filling procedure and can have less than 1% error in readings.  Normally, the guard is filled and supplied with a gauge however can be furnished without the gauge for an user supplied pressure transducer or gauge.
