Syracuse, NY - January 29, 2002 - INFICON announces a new highly accurate, digital vacuum gauge using Pirani sensor technology and a stainless steel refrigeration fitting for more precise readings of vacuum levels at every stage in the evacuation cycle of air conditioning or refrigeration systems. The Pilot Vacuum Gauge
measures from atmosphere (760,000 microns) down to 1 micron with an easy-to-read digital display in microns, Pascal and millibars. It displays the actual reading on the vacuum level throughout the entire evacuation process, so a leak is immediately visible. Pilot has an automatic shut-off and stores the last reading for easy retrieval upon start-up. It operates on a 9-volt battery and has a 2-year over-the-counter warranty. The PILOT Vacuum Gauge may be used with any size vacuum pump, including the high-performance INFICON SHARK, a conveniently transportable, two-stage, 6 cfm vacuum pump that can pump down from atmosphere to 20 microns faster than any other vacuum pump on the market today.
