Welcome to Ashcroft - PLUS!™ Performance…
Liquid-filled performance in a dry gauge!
In the past, applications where heavy vibration and pulsation were present required the use of either a conventional dry gauge with a hard to read pointer and a limited life span, or, a costly liquid-filled gauge and all the headaches that come with them.
An exclusive, breakthrough technology developed for Ashcroft pressure gauges providing virtually liquid-filled performance in a dry gauge, the Ashcroft® PLUS! TM Performance option.
Benefits vs. Dry Gauges...
Benefits vs Liquid-filled...
How’d They Do That?..
The Patented Ashcroft® PLUS!TM Performance option utilizes a unique cartridge to surround the pinion with an engineered dampening agent to dynamically dampen the pointer and movement, thereby providing a dry gauge which acts liquid-filled.
Improved Plant Safety
is a critical issue and the PLUS!TM
performance option can improve the safety of your plant. Industry surveys
indicate that 20% to 30% of customer’s gauges are misapplied and prematurely
fail due to pulsation and vibration. If a Bourdon tube fails due to excessive
pulsation, the process media will escape causing possible environmental
damage, process contamination and more importantly, possible injury, fire
improves safety and saves money by allowing facilities to standardize on a convenient dry PLUS!™ gauge that performs virtually like a liquid-filled gauge. This saves 20% to 30% annually by reducing misapplied gauges, as well as reducing the risk of spills, injury and damage to their facility.
