4 Benefits of Having Pressure Gauge With Maximum Indicator

pressure gauge with maximum indicator
I remember when I was audited by ISO 9001 external auditor. The auditor found a pressure gauge installed at a pressure vessel without maximum indicator.

He claimed that it is very important to install pressure gauge with maximum indicator. He said that it is not only about safety but it means quality control.

He urged me to set up maximum indicator at every pressure gauge in the plant. He added that it needs to be there even though I have set up minimum and maximum values on the log sheet.

He was true. I followed his suggestion. But, I did not replace the existing pressure gauges with pressure gauge with maximum indicator since it will be too costly.

Then, I put a red indicator inside pressure gauge to show maximum allowable operating pressure.

Pressure gauge with maximum indicator can also be used for hydrostatic test.

How about you? Have you installed pressure gauge with maximum indicator as in my case? If not, please read the following benefits of having pressure gauge with maximum indicator. It could make this clear to you.
