Common Failure: Pulsation
How do I know that my gauge is experiencing pulsation?

What causes pulsation in my gauge?
Failure due to pulsation can be caused by several things. When looking at your system, consider the following:
- Are the dynamic loading wearing movement components down?
- Is your system media rapidly cycling through the system affecting the ability of the gauge to measure pressure?
- Bourdon tube ruptures causing complete gauge failure
- System media is released into the environment resulting in potential injury and lost system media
Redesign your system to reposition gauge within system to reduce cycling speed seen by the gauge and maintain measurement integrity.
