After preliminary analysis of obtained experimental data, it was possible to conclude that diaphragm vacuum gauge pressure measurement accuracy was high.
One commonly overlooked engineering criterion when using atmospheric TES tanks is maintaining positive gauge pressure (a pressure above atmospheric pressure) within the entire chilled water system while maintaining the top of the vented tank at atmospheric pressure.
The range includes transmitters for gauge pressure, absolute pressure, temperature, and ultrasonic noise (for detecting steam and gas leaks).
OEMs at first thought they could get TPM on the cheap by using existing anti-lock braking systems (ABS) to gauge pressure loss by measuring changes in the effective roiling radius of tires brought on by deflation.
The problem lies within the quantities of absolute pressure and gauge pressure. Absolute pressure uses a perfect vacuum as zero while gauge pressure uses atmospheric pressure as zero.
The Multirange Transmitter line provides a span turndown capability of 400:1 for both differential pressure (DP) and gauge pressure (GP) applications.
Tensile slabs were cured at 141[degrees]C under 150 kg/cm gauge pressure in laboratory curing press.
Any change in the part's gauge pressure over time must be convened by calculations into a measure of leakage.
Main purpose of the paper is to propose a new vacuum verification system which can be used in any vacuum coating company to verify vacuum gauges at any moment, even daily to obtain vacuum gauge pressure deviation data.
