NEW TECHNOLOGY PUTS AN END TO LIQUID FILLED PRESSURE GAUGE GELLING, LEAKAGE AND DISCOLORATION

EQUALIZER2-BRASS

Fairview’s EQUALIZER Pressure Gauge combines the benefits of a liquid filled gauge with a dry case resulting in the best of both worlds in one revolutionary new product.

The ability of Liquid Filled Pressure Gauges to absorb vibration and dampen needle movement – resulting in longer gauge life and more accurate readings – has long made them the preferred choice over standard Dry Pressure Gauges. On the other hand, liquid filled pressure gauges may leak and the liquid can gel or become discolored if exposed to extreme temperatures.

THE EQUALIZER SOLUTION

VIDEO SHOWS: DRY GAUGE COMPARED TO LIQUID OR EQUALIZER

 

Fairview is proud to introduce the new EQUALIZER pressure gauge, a gauge designed to solve leakage, gelling and discoloration problems without sacrificing the vibration and dampening qualities of a liquid filled gauge

The Equalizer gauge contains a small flat paddle covered by a stainless steel cap filled with dampening compound. The shaft is affixed to an extended pointer in the back of the gauge, creating enough resistance to dampen the pointer movement. The result is a “Dry Pressure Gauge” that can withstand vibration and pulsation while providing a precise reading average of 99.5% accuracy. The lightweight Equalizer is reinforced and operates in temperatures as high as +200°F (+93°C) and as low as -58°F(-50°C) without concern.

Fairview’s 5 year warrantied Equalizer technology is ideal for pumps, compressors, hydraulic presses, machinery and motors, and is available in pressure ranges from 60 psi/kPa up to 10,000 psi/kPa with 2.5” or 4” 304 Stainless case options and brass internals. Premium versions in all stainless steel are also available upon request.

Have You Checked Your Brakes Today?

Out-of-adjustment brakes and brake system violations combine to represent half of all out-of-service violations issued for commercial vehicles on the road. Brake systems that are improperly installed or poorly maintained can reduce the braking capacity and stopping distance of trucks or buses, a serious safety risk.

Drivers can inspect their brake systems every day. Even if you can’t go under the vehicle, you can listen for air leaks, check low air signals and look for component damage. If you can go under your vehicle, you can measure pushrod stroke the same way a CVSA-certified inspector does, and compare the results to the pushrod stroke limits set by regulation.
