1. pressure gauge

Pressure measurement is the measurement of an applied force by a fluid (liquid or gas) on a surface. Pressure is typically measured in units of force per unit of surface area. Many techniques have been developed for the measurement of pressure and vacuum. Instruments used to measure and display pressure mechanically are called pressure gauges, vacuum gauges or compound gauges (vacuum & pressure). The widely used Bourdon gauge is a mechanical device, which both measures and indicates and is probably the best known type of gauge. A vacuum gauge is used to measure pressures lower than the ambient atmospheric pressure, which is set as the zero point, in negative values (for instance, −1 bar or −760 mmHg equals total vacuum). Most gauges measure pressure relative to atmospheric pressure as the zero point, so this form of reading is simply referred to as "gauge pressure". However, anything greater than total vacuum is technically a form of pressure. For very low pressures, a gauge that uses total vacuum as the zero point reference must be used, giving pressure reading as an absolute pressure. Other methods of pressure measurement involve sensors that can transmit the pressure reading to a remote indicator or control system (telemetry).

1. pressure gauge

A pressure gauge is a type of instrument or device used to measure the pressure of a fluid (liquid or gas) within a vessel or container. Pressure is typically expressed in units of force per unit area. This tool primarily serves in monitoring and controlling pressurized systems, ensuring their proper functioning, safety, and efficiency. Examples of these systems are boilers, fuel tanks, medical gaseous systems, and aircraft pressurization systems. Some gauge types include hydraulic, pneumatic, and vacuum pressure gauges.
