McDaniel Controls stainless steel gauges are designed and manufactured its to minimize failure and to protect personnel and property. The use of laminated safety glass, rather than plexiglass or single strength glass, prevents dangerous pressure build-up in the case; the 2“ glass breaks at 60 psi, the 2 1/2“ at 40 psi, the 4“ at 15 psi and the 6“ at 8 psi. The brittle glass cracks uniformly and
the laminate remains intact. Additionally, the laminated safety glass won’t craze or discolor.
Every All Stainless Steel McDaniel gauge is designed to withstand:
- 300% full scale pressure without rupture of the bourdon tube.
- 130% full scale pressure without loss of accuracy.
- 15,000 cycles of pressure pulsation from 10% to 90% full scale at a rate of 60 times a minute.
- The gauge is allowed to rest for 5 minutes and then can have no greater error than 1% above it’s original accuracy as stated above; at any place on the dial.
