Only 60 bar?

That's a nice summary of some of the available types of pressure gauges.

I'm not sure where you got the impression that bourdon tube gauges can only measure up to 60 bar, because there are many bourdon tube gauges on the market that can measure and withstand much, much higher pressures.

For example, Ashcroft, a major manufacturer of bourdon tube pressure gauges, makes gauges that can measure up to 20,000 psig, or 1379 bar, or even higher.

See http://www.ashcroft.com/products/pressure_gauges/process/index.cfm

What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Procurement actually means well. There is no question that procurement can do a better job of phrasing their questions or making connections between engineering’s goals and the processes underway. And if you are using the right deciphering code, the result can live up to -- or surpass -- your expectations.
Internal combustion engines are ruling power generation applications even today, and improvising them to churn out every slice of power is still an area of research for the engineering community.
If you are interested in adding FPGA technology to you engineering toolkit, grab some free tools and an evaluation kit and get started on your own FPGA project. It never hurts to expand your engineering toolbox, and FPGAs are only going to become more popular over the next few years.
With the growing demand for new-age applications, corrosion has become an inherent problem. Not only do epoxies confer excellent corrosion resistance, they are also easy to handle and process. However, one must be mindful of selecting the right epoxy system along with the appropriate application techniques for best results.
