Pressure gauges have the power to communicate to us a reading of pressure that is currently happening in a system. They can be found in use on many different types of machinery displaying readings of the current state of a process. Types of gauges include pressure, vacuum, temperature, process, fuel, air and absolute pressure gauges. Digital and analog readouts are available in today’s market. A digital gauge displays and exact readout and there is no guessing what the numbers are whereas on an analog readout it can be more confusing. This is because a needle points to a number and it is not always steady, two people might have conflicting opinions as to what the actual reading is.
Temperature gauges have high importance for many manufacturing companies that create materials and products that require a certain temperature to establish correct results. Constantly displaying a temperature reading, the gauge lets operators know what current internal climates are and whether or not they need to be adjusted. When I think of a pressure gauge, the word thermometer comes to mind. Some companies heat plastic and place it into molds to create items. If the temperature does not get hot enough the plastic will not melt efficiently and the product would contain defects. If the temperature of the plastic got to hot it could boil the material and damage it making it unusable. This is why it is important to know the internal temperatures of operating machinery to ensure the correct atmosphere.
Many people use simple temperature gauges at home for cooking. You might see one sticking out of a turkey this thanksgiving measuring the internal temp of it to make sure it is cooked thoroughly. They can also be used in many other cooking applications in which temperature is a crucial factor such as boiling and steaming. Without these readings, food can be undercooked and poultry could be unsafe for eating.
