The Importance of an Air Pressure Gauge

When I was in high school, my friend and I were driving around in her car and we noticed one of her tires looked a little flat. We thought that it might be a good idea to pull over to a gas station and put more air in that tire so that exactly what we did. Hooking the air station to the tire we filled it up until it looked right again. A few weeks later my friend was suddenly finding that her car was not driving correctly as usual and that something seemed fishy. She had her father look at her car to see if he could figure out what was wrong with it. Sure enough he looked at the tire and said that it was way over inflated and told us that when filling a tire we must use and air pressure gauge to avoid this from happening. Both of us having little knowledge about cars, we have no idea that an air pressure was important to be used when filling up car tires. An over inflated tire is more at risk to potential popping and damage. To this day I still use an air pressure gauge when filling up my tires to stretch out the longevity of my tires.

Air pressure gauge manufactures provide all sorts of air pressure gauges because they know how important they are to use in certain applications. Many manufacturing companies use air pressure gauges in conjunction with their machinery to measure air pressure of gases inside an enclosed area. It is very important to know the air pressure of the vessel at all times because some gases are dangerous and any leaks or abnormal pressures need to be made aware of as soon as possible. This ensures that the machines are running correctly and that everything runs smoothly.
