Over 160 years ago, Edward Ashcroft saw the need for safer, more sophisticated pressure and temperature instruments for use in the emerging steam industry. In response, he introduced a then-revolutionary new Bourdon tube pressure gauge, the rest is history.
Ashcroft Pressure Gauges
Ashcroft offers a broad line of commercial gauges with the patented PowerFlex movement and True Zero indication. Independent lab testing shows that the PowerFlex movement is more shock resistant than conventional movement gauges. With True Zero indication you can be certain that if your gauge reads zero – there is zero pressure in your system.
FlutterGuard which eliminates pointer flutter and extends gauge life, comes standard on Type 1007P refrigeration gauges and is available as an optional feature on other commercial gauges. Typical applications include checking or servicing refrigerant levels in automotive, residential or industrial air-conditioning units; refrigerant recovery and reclamation units; refrigerant transport systems, and large scale air-conditioning and chilling equipment. The Type 1008A/AL stainless steel case gauges are an excellent choice in harsh environmental conditions
