Announcing a new look to
SKF pressure gauges
SKF Maintenance Products, a division of the SKF Group, has
been supplying high quality, high capacity pressure gauges
for many years. SKF's pressure gauges are well known for their
robustness and performance. However, gauges with white or
grey face can be difficult to read in bad lighting conditions.
Now, the dark ages are now over! SKF has changed the colour
of its pressure gauge faces to a high contrast yellow.
Research has shown that yellow is the most visible colour
for the human eye to detect. Yellow faces combined with black
gauge markings offer users the best opportunity to see the
readings in all but the very worst lighting environments.
SKF offers a wide range of gauges reading up to 400MPa (58,000psi),
which are ideally suited for tough industrial use. It is also
highly important that pressure gauges are accurate and reliable;
the SKF range of pressure gauges is designed with this in
mind. All SKF pressure gauges are accurate to within 1% of
full scale and are filled with a special damping fluid, which
reduces the risk of damage to the internal workings during
transit or rough handling. In addition, the gauges are fitted
with safety glass and safety blow out discs, helping protect
the user in the extremely rare event that the internal bourdon
tube fails. To help prevent corrosion and ensure a long service
life, the gauge cases are made of a high quality stainless
