HAVING ONLY ONE MOVING PART MINIMIZES THE
EFFECTS OF SHOCK, VIBRATION PULSATION AND WEAR
DIRECT DRIVE BOURDON TUBE
The advantage of Perma-Cal® direct drive over conventional C- tube gauges is simple, there is only one moving part No gears, linkages, or springs
to wear or break. Perma-Cal® gauges have a unique helical-wound
elastic element that is attached directly to the pointer shaft. This
eliminates the need for any movement-amplifying gears or linkages (the
parts of a C-tube that fail most frequently). Perma-Cal® gauges
maintain their structural integrity and accurate calibration in the
most demanding environments, even during prolonged and rugged use.
Perma-Cal® direct drive pressure gauges provide the lowest cost of ownership by giving the best value in durability, reliability, and accuracy.
NO LIQUID FILL
Perma-Cal® gauges have more durability and longevity
than liquid-filled gauges, without the mess or problems of liquid
fill. Perma-Cal® gauges do not have any of the problems filling
solves. There are no gears or linkages to lubricate, and
Perma-Cal® gauges are internally dampened with a small application of
heavy (600,000 centistokes) silicone grease that eliminates pointer
flutter. Perma-Cal® provides a longer life gauge than liquid filled
gauges without the leaking or discoloring problems of liquid fill.
Perma-Cal® gauges have a very low volume elastic element and solid front
case that provide the safest gauge possible. C-tube gauges have a
relatively large volume elastic element that in cases of catastrophic
failure could spill large amounts of process. Not all direct drive
gauges offer the industry standard solid front for case safety. The Perma-Cal® configuration of solid front
and rear blowout features provides the customer with the safest
possible case style. Perma-Cal® furnishes the safest, most durable
gauge in the industry.
All Perma-Cal® gauges have a high repeatable accuracy, instantaneous
action, and are available as Grade 3A (+.25% full scale), Grade 2A (+.5% full scale), or +.5% mid-scale/ +
1% full scale. The full scale accuracy rating is applicable in both
ascending and descending modes on all gauges, except for gauges rated
8,000 PSI and above , where the descending accuracy is +1% of
full scale. Test gauges (Grade 3A) come with a calibration certificate
traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
included in the price. Perma-Cal® provides the best in durability,
reliability and accuracy.
