BioPure Gauge Guard

Overview

Gauge guard

Protect the faces of your gauges to stop corrosion without sacrificing gauge performance. Sizes from ½” through 1 ½” can be placed on the face of your gauge so that caustic and acidic fluids won’t come into contact with the gauge diaphragm. A thin membrane is moulded in place, favouring one side of the gasket ring so that the membrane is flush with the gauge face.

  • USP Class VI compliant and Animal Derived Component Free (ADCF)
  • Compliant with FDA regulations CFR 21 177.2600
