All Stainless Steel 1.5” Positioner Gauge


The model “S” gauge is the most accurate, corrosion resistant, and rugged gauge you can buy in a 1.5” dial size.

Ideal for use as a positioned gauge on valves where vibration and corrosion are a problem. (Check the dimensionals. Some enclosures will not accept the face to stem tip depth!) It’s all stainless steel construction will withstand harsh chemical environments and the glycerin filling shuts out corrosive atmospheres, while offering maximum protection from vibration and pulsation. It’s accuracy of 1.5% of full scale value is unique in this size gauge.

Safe and Reliable:

McDaniel designs and manufactures its gauges to minimize failure and to protect personnel and property. The use of laminated safety glass, rather than plexiglass or single strength glass, prevents dangerous pressure build-up in the case; the 2" glass breaks at 60 psi, the 2 ½" at 40 psi, the 4" at 15 psi and the 6" at 8 psi. The brittle glass cracks uniformly and the laminate remains intact. Additionally, the laminated safety glass won't craze or discolor.

Every All Stainless Steel McDaniel gauge is designed to withstand:
• 300% full scale pressure without rupture of the bourdon tube.
• 130% full scale pressure without loss of accuracy.
• 15,000 cycles of pressure pulsation from 10% to 90% full scale at a rate of 60 times a minute. The gauge is allowed to rest for 5 minutes and then can have no greater error than 1% above it's original accuracy as stated above; at any place on the dial.


Pulse/Vibration Protection:

McDaniel offers liquid-filled gauges for applications involving vibration or pulsation. Glycerin is an excellent damper of bourdon tube movement. Emersion of the entire measuring assembly in a protective liquid envelope provides lubrication and shuts out corrosive or dirty atmospheres -- thereby minimizing wear of moving parts and prolonging gauge life significantly.

Choice of Filling:

When you order a McDaniel fillable gauge you may choose to fill it yourself or you may order it factory-filled with the liquid of your choice. Thus, you can maximize inventory utility and minimize inventory cost.

Glycerin filling has a lower operating temperature limit of 32°F (O°C) undiluted. The mixture of distilled water in proportions up to 35% will lowerthe limit  commensurately, to -40°F (-40°C).

Silicone can extend the lower temperature limit to -60°F (-50°C).

The maximum temperature limit is not determined by the fluid but by the gauge's synthetic case seal. At elevated temperatures the seal may bake and lose its elasticity.

Warning: Glycerin filled gauges should not be used in applications involving strong oxidizing agents such as chlorine, nitric acid or hydrogen peroxide. (Refer to ASME B40.l)


Repair Feature:

If any McDaniel gauge requires repair, downtime can be minimal because all gauges are field-repairable - quickly and easily - with only a screwdriver needed for disassembly.

If circumstances permit and factory repair is preferred, we will make the repair at a nominal service charge. See "WARRANTY & REPAIR" for further details


Warranty
McDaniel warrants our pressure gauges to be free of defects in material and workmanship. Replacement of any defective gauge will be made at no cost to the purchaser. Gauge failures determined to be caused by abuse, over-range and incompatibility with environment or process media will not be considered under this warranty.

Repair / Refurbish
We will repair any regular stock McDaniel gauge for a cost of $25.00 on 4" and 6" sizes; $15.00 on 2½" and smaller (excluding Utility Gauges). Damaged sockets or bourdon tubes cannot be repaired.


Choices of Mounting Style

• Standard bottom connection
• Center Back Connection
• Panel Mount/Center Back
• Panel Mount/Center Back U-Clamp



Choice of Scale

McDaniel offers from inventory many dual scale ranges. These include psi/kPa with the psi scale primary and kPa secondary; psi/Bar with the psi scale primary and Bar secondary; psi/kg/cm² with psi primary and kg/cm² secondary; kg/cm²/psi with kilograms per cm² primary and psi secondary

Durable

The best-known construction materials available are used in the manufacture of McDaniel gauges:

A. 304 Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Case
B. 316 Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Movement
C. 316 Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Connection.
     Socket and Bourdon Tube

D. Neoprene Gaskets
E. Laminated Safety Glass Lens
F. Polished 304 Stainless Steel Bayonet Ring


Spiral Bourdon Tube

Bourdon tube work hardening can cause premature rupture in a pulsation type service, especially if that service is above 800 psi, where heavy wall thickness of the Bourdon tube is encountered.

McDaniel therefore, incorporates an annealled spiral bourdon tube as the sensing element of all gauge ranges above 800 psi to minimize bourdon tube failure possibilities.
