What is a Micron?
By:Bryan Orr To answer the question in the title, we use it as a measurement of pressure. REALLY, it is a measurement of distance. First, any scale CAN be used to measure vacuum (negative pressure) and positive pressure. The trick is knowing which is best suited for which and the size of the scale. Larger […]

What if you Only Have One Large Hose?
When evacuating, the FASTEST way is to use two large diameter hoses connected to two core removal tools and the cores removed. These hoses are then connected to the pump using a tee or evacuation “tree”. However, when you only have one large hose another acceptable method is to connect the large hose to the suction […]

Absolute vs. Gauge Pressure (Micron Gauge vs. Manometer) – Short #184
By:Bryan Orr  In this short podcast episode, Bryan covers the differences between absolute and gauge pressure, as well as measuring pressure with a micron gauge or a manometer. Compression ratio deals with absolute suction and absolute discharge pressures. Absolute pressure requires us to add atmospheric pressure to the gauge pressure. We usually measure gauge […]
