WIKA Instrument, LP (WIKA) announces it has combined direct drive technology with product features and standards from its existing Process Gauge XSEL® series. The WIKA Direct Drive process gauge (Model 232.34DD) has an exclusive Bourdon tube made of Inconel® X-750 alloy. Compatible with most media types, this super-alloy is highly resistant to temperature extremes and has excellent oxidation and corrosion properties. Because the gauge has only one moving part, it has no gears, linkages or springs to wear or break. This results in very long service life and no loss of accuracy. It also comes with a process industry standard ASME B40.100 Grade 2A (+/-0.5% of span) accuracy for ranges up to 10,000 psi; a silicone dampened Bourdon tube to eliminate pointer flutter in severe vibration and pulsation applications; an adjustable process gauge pointer for recalibration; and a yellow case to signify to workers that this gauge is used for the tough applications.
The WIKA Direct Drive test gauge (Model 332.34DD) has a calibration industry standard ASME B40.100 Grade 3A (+/-0.25% of span) accuracy for ranges up to 10,000 psi; a knife-edge adjustable pointer for precise pressure readings; a mirror band dial to remove reading error; a calibration certificate traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST); and standard red case.
