Eliminate the Need for Expensive Halocarbon Filled Pressure Gauges (PDF) When pressure gauges are subjected to severe vibration and pulsation, they traditionally require a liquid fill to stabilize the pointer. If the pressure medium is an oxidizing agent, the fill fluid of choice is usually Halocarbon oil. With the unprecedented increase in the price of Halocarbon products, gauges filled with Halocarbon oil have become prohibitively expensive. So why pay several times the cost of a standard dry gauge when you can choose the exclusive Ashcroft® PLUS!™ Performance feature?
