Causes of Pressure Gauge Failure

There are several potential causes of pressure gauge failure. Some common causes of failure include:

Excessive pressure: If the pressure being measured exceeds the maximum range of the gauge, the gauge may fail.

Vibration: Excessive vibration can cause mechanical failure of the gauge movement or damage to the gauge's internal components.

Corrosion: Corrosive substances can damage the internal components of the gauge, leading to failure.

Abrasion: If the gauge is subjected to abrasive substances, it can wear out or become damaged, leading to failure.

Temperature: Extreme temperature changes can cause expansion and contraction of the gauge's internal components, leading to failure.

Poor maintenance: Lack of proper maintenance, such as failing to periodically calibrate the gauge or replacing worn parts, can lead to gauge failure.

Electrical issues: Digital pressure gauges may fail due to electrical issues, such as power surges or problems with the electronic components.

By understanding the potential causes of gauge failure and taking steps to prevent or address these issues, you can help ensure the reliability and accuracy of your pressure gauges.
