This angioplasty gauge is 1-1/4 inches in diameter. Cases are available in black or white, ABS blend, or optional zinc-plated steel. The dial is light-accumulating luminescent aluminum, with optional custom dial artwork and colors available. The bronze Bourdon tube and brass socket were selected to minimize corrosion from contrast media. Dial ranges include -1/0/20, -1/0/2, and -1/0/30 atmospheres with optional ranges available.

The Bio-Tel is an electrical sensor, which instantly sends a signal to process control systems when a pressure surge causes a bursting disc to operate. Recommended for hygienic/aseptic process applications, such as pharmaceutical manufacturing and bioprocess engineering, the device consists of a membrane with an electrically conductive track in a mounted gasket. The sensor fits between two industry-standard couplings, adjacent to the bursting disc, and is triggered when escaping fluid or gas ruptures the membrane.

ST Series infrared thermometers use laser sighting to better identify the measurement area. Models range in distance-to-spot ratios from 12:1 and 30:1 to 50:1. One model uses a single point laser, while all other models feature an offset 8-point laser sighting system that estimates the measured area. Temperature ranges include -32 to 760C. All thermometers are covered in a rubber overmolding for rough handling.
