Ashcroft offers a wide range of pressure gauge sizes, accuracies, ranges and configurations designed to suit specific applications, such as use in fire extinguishers and industrial compressors.

Each gauge is designed to balance the performance and cost requirements of each individual application.

Ashcroft’s gauge line offers OEMs a choice of economical ASME B40.100, Grade B +/-3-2-3 per cent accuracy utility gauges.

At the top of this offering are the Ashcroft 1001T, 1005 and 1008 pressure gauges.

All are equipped with the patented Ashcroft Powerflex movement and the True Zero indication feature, which ensures long life and high reliability.

For applications where the gauge will be subjected to high vibration, the optional Flutterguard feature helps to stabilise the pointer in lieu of liquid filling.

Type 1001T are steel-case, back-connected gauges specifically designed for mounting in panels.

They are available in dial diameters of 11/2, 2, 21/2 and 31/2in and in ranges to 6,000psi.

A specific version for refrigeration panels is offered as the 1001T, XOR.

Type 1005 series gauges are available in ABS (1005P), painted-steel (1005) or stainless-steel (1005S) cases.

Dial diameters of 11/2, 2, 21/2 and 31/2in are offered in both back and lower connections and can be panel mounted.

1005 series gauges are provided in ranges up to 6,000psi, and in specific variants for agriculture (1005M, XRG) and UL/FM-rated fire sprinkler systems (1005P, XUL).

Type 1008A/AL gauges are equipped with a stainless-steel case and are offered in dial diameters of 2.5 and 4in.

These high-end commercial gauges are offered in ranges up to 15,000psi and are configured with either back or lower connections.

They may be panel mounted and can be provided with either Flutterguard or a liquid fill when pointer stabilisation is necessary.

Ashcroft Instruments

Over 150 years ago, Edward Ashcroft saw the need for safer, more sophisticated pressure and temperature instruments for use in the emerging steam industry. In response, he introduced a then-revolutionary new Bourdon tube pressure gauge. The rest is history.

Times continue to change and so do the needs of industry. Products manufactured by Ashcroft Inc. have become the benchmark in pressure and temperature measurement and include gauges, thermometers, switches, transducers, transmitters, instrument isolators and diaphragm seals and control and calibration equipment.

Specified around the world for the most demanding requirements, these instruments are widely recognized under the brand names Ashcroft, Heise, Willy, and Weksler. And you can find them in wastewater treatment facilities, biotech and pharmaceutical labs, medical applications, semiconductor facilities, refineries, power generation plants, food processing plants, pulp and paper mills, chemical manufacturing plants and the host of support companies that serve these industries.

Our team consists of experts ready to help resolve even the most difficult applications and technical issues. If you require broader specifications than our standard product line offers, our engineers, technical staff and product marketing specialists can work with you to custom fit the right product to the job. Our customer service representatives are highly trained to answer product application questions, offer competitive product cross-references and work closely with you to help meet your goals.

We maintain an extensive network of field and in-house sales personnel, local representatives and distributors to ensure you receive quick product delivery and service. Along with our “partner” representatives we offer product training and education, facility surveys, calibration services, seal assembly and answers to your application questions.  

Safety is a critical issue, and our instrument audit can improve the safety or your plant. Industry surveys indicate that 20% to 30% of customers’ instruments are misapplied and fail prematurely due to pulsation and vibration, allowing the process media or liquid fill to escape and cause environmental damage or even harm those nearby. Experts from Ashcroft Inc. can help identify areas of concern before they become problems. This important service will help prevent accidents, avoid misapplications and save money and time.  

As the leader in technology and innovation we design new products based on current and emerging market requirements as well as individual customer’s requirements. As the industry leader our “firsts” lead the way with breakthrough new product features and value added benefits for the customer. With our 2005 acquisition by (our longtime sensor partner) Nagano Keiki Company of Japan we now have access to additional engineering expertise and superior, exclusive sensor technology.
