First of all, let’s be clear on what we’re talking about here! Direct drive gauges are gearless, meaning there is only one moving part. These pressure gauges are ideal for controlling in vibration, pulsation and shock. The Del Rio Co. provides only the best direct drive pressure gauges from Perma-Cal ®. These gauges are composed of a helically-weld Bourbon tube attached directly to the pointer shaft.
Advantage #1 : No gears, linkages or springs.
Reduce the maintenance of wear and tear as well as the risk of breakage. Less parts means your reading is a linear as possible, increasing accuracy and eliminating the need for any movement-amplifying gears or linkages.
This simplicity is the primary advantage of a direct drive pressure gauge.
Advantage #2: No liquid fill.
The way that Perma-Cal direct drive gauges are structured eliminates the need for liquid fill. This is critical because liquid fill is often the culprit of C-tube gauges failing prematurely. However, these gauges have no external pieces that require lubrication, so by nature you won’t experience the problems that liquid fill is designed to solve.
Advantage #3: Strength & endurance for superior performance.
The Perma-Cal gauge from The Del Rio company withstands a 50% overpressure without a shift in calibration. The case of these gauges is shock resistant aluminum designed for the US Navy. It is so effective, that the military actually requires use of this direct drive gauge over typical C-Tube designs in certain environments. This rigorously tested equipment will wow you with its performance.
The Del Rio Company supplies high quality industrial pressure gauges from industry leaders, such as Perma-Cal. The bourdon tube and direct drive pressure gauges we supply come with 150% over protection. In some cases, we are also able to provide custom fabrication and ordering depending on your needs.
