Ask the Expert – Monitoring Air Filters

Magnehelic® Differential Pressure Gages Series 2000

Question: Is there a kit I can buy with the Magnehelic® Differential Pressure Gage for monitoring air filters, so that I don’t have to buy all the tubing, static pressure tips, and a bracket separately?

Answer: Using the Magnehelic® Differential Pressure Gage to monitor an air filter is a very common application. For the convenience of our customers, Dwyer has created the Air Filter Kit Model A-605 which can be purchased for use with the Magnehelic® Differential Pressure Gage.

Air Filter Kit Model A-605

This Air Filter Kit comes with everything you would need to adapt any standard Magnehelic® Gage for use as an air filter gage. The Kit includes an aluminum surface mounting bracket with screws, two 5 ft (1.5 m) lengths of ¼” aluminum tubing, two static pressure tips, and two molded plastic vent valves. This Kit will simplify the ordering process by reducing the number of part numbers that need to be ordered, as well as reduce the possibility of forgetting to order a specific part. Additionally, the Air Filter Kit will make installation easier, because everything needed for the job will already be together as opposed to trying to piece the necessary equipment together from local stock. With the Magnehelic® Differential Pressure Gage and the Air Filter Kit, you can rest assured you will have everything you need.

Continuing with Dwyer Instruments desire to help our customers and provide added convenience, we have also created several other accessory kits for a variety of instrumentation and applications, should the need arise.
