TS Series Solid Front Process Gauge with Blow-Out Back

SKU: TS_Series Categories: , ,


Designed for maximum safety of personnel monitoring gauges.  Case backs are designed to "Blow-Out" to reduce the pressure inside the case; in the event of a failure, fluid or particles will blow out of the back of the case to release pressure.

Constructed with a solid barrier between the sensing element and the dial front and welded to the socket for maximum strength.
