Digital Pressure Gauge Offers 4000 Hours of Battery Life

Digital Pressure Gauges

For highly accurate digital pressure indication, NOSHOK offers its 1000 Series Digital Pressure Gauge. This gauge features an integrated battery with up to 4000 hours of battery life, eliminating the necessity of fixed power supplies. Standard pressure ranges are available from 0 psig to 30 psig, to as high as 0 psig to 10000 psig. For pressure ranges above 750 psig, the wetted parts are made of stainless steel which is resistant to many chemically aggressive media.

The liquid crystal display has an integrated bar graph with a trailing indicating pointer to show the trends in a working pressure system. There is also an additional 4-1/2 digit display for a direct readout of the peak value, tare and other functions. An internal light ensures the display is optimally lit for a clear readout even in unfavorable lighting conditions. The buttons on the front of the display are used for easy adjustment of the programmable functions.

Affordable Compact OEM Transducer Can Handle The Pressure

NOSHOK’s 300 Series compact-sized pressure transducers deliver robust pressure measurement at an economical price. These transducers provide long term stability during operation, and are ideal for use in general industrial applications where space is limited and durability is essential.  

Their rugged, high quality stainless steel construction makes them compatible with chemically aggressive media, and highly resistant to shock and vibration. A wide variety of electrical and mechanical connections are available for easy installation into most applications along with most popular analog output signals. All electrical components carry a high degree of EMC protection compliant with EN 61 326 which make them ideal for areas where RFI, EMI or ESD signals are present.

Available in pressure ranges from 0 psig to 15 psig, and 0 psig to 10,000 psig, as well as standard absolute ranges from 15 psia to 200 psia.

Tiny But Tough

CHTK Chain Hoist Test

Available in electroless nickel plated steel, electropolished stainless steel and natural brass; these Mini Valves were designed with your toughest applications in mind. All are equipped with both a Viton® O-Ring seal and a Teflon® back-up ring below the stem threads to protect them from corrosion and galling. The stem threads are rolled for strength and ease of operation.  They also feature a patent pending body-to-bonnet, metal-to-metal seal below the bonnet threads isolating them from the process media.  The patent pending designed incorporates a unique dovetail feature that supplements the body-to-bonnet metal-to-metal which extends the pressure range of the valve without restricting the flow.

100 Series Hard Seat Mini Valves

  • 10,000 psi maximum hard seat pressure rating for the stainless steel and steel models; 6,000 psi rating for the brass.

150 Series Soft Tip Mini Valves

  • Patented non-rotating soft tip stem with back-up metal-to-metal seal. This seal helps extend the service life of the valve by easily conforming to the metal sealing surfaces that may become damaged by corrosion, cavitations or chemical attack. 
  • 6,000 psi pressure rating for stainless steel and steel; 3,000 psi rating for brass.

All NOSHOK Valves are 100% Helium leak tested to 1 x 10-4 ml/s for guaranteed performance and reliability.

Performance Under Pressure


* Hydroforming
* Burst testing
* High pressure filtration
* High pressure/high torque tools
* High pressure lubrication
* High pressure pumping

ImageA high pressure gauge is one of the most valuable troubleshooting tools available in a Water Jet Cutting system. Many systems do not include a high pressure gauge; instead they utilize a hydraulic pressure gauge, which is not as accurate.  Standard cutting pressures range between 45,000 to 60,000 psi, which is why the need for a specialized pressure sensing instrument is crucial for both reliability and accuracy

With a standard accuracy of +/-1% Full Scale, NOSHOK’s Extreme High Pressure Gauges are exceptionally reliable in demanding applications. They come with a standard 9/16”-18 UNF 3B High Pressure Process Connection, and are available in standard dry or liquid-filled configurations with most standard options and accessories.

What is the purpose of the ventable fill plug on a pressure gauge?


NOSHOK installs a ventable fill plug on all liquid filled gauges with pressure ranges of 300 psi and below (including vacuum and compound). The liquid inside of the case expands and contracts with changes in barometric pressure and temperature, which affects accuracy. This condition may also cause the pointer to move from zero. When the pin is pulled, it equalizes the internal case pressure with the atmospheric pressure and returns the gauge to the calibrated accuracy.
