• Description

• Shows ‘dead weight’ calibration of a Bourdon gauge
• Bourdon gauge has transparent dial so students can see how it works
• Suitable for group demonstrations and student experiments
• Simple to operate
• Compact, bench-mounting unit
• Self-contained – needs no extra services

Note: TecQuipment individually machines the cylinder and
piston of each product to a high tolerance. Therefore they
are not interchangeable between units.
