Product: Pressure gages for small tube mounting
Tube ended pressure gages from Parker eliminate the need for adapters when mounting a gage on a tubing plumbed system.
You've probably faced this problem: How to mount a pressure gage on a line that's plumbed with flexible copper, stainless steel, or plastic tubing. Most gages have NPT inlets, so to mount one on a 1/4 in. tube, you have to find an adapter. Getting the gage tight enough to stop leaking without deforming the tubing can be a challenge. There is an answer. Parker now offers a line of gages with tubing diameter inlets.
The PG2 series is designed for Parker's A-Lok tubing fittings. It features a compact 2.5-in. dial diameter and stainless steel body. With lower and center back mounting configurations, they can fit in tight locations. Ranges up to 1000 psig are available with 1.5% of full-scale accuracy.
