MTM Hydro 10,000 PSI Top Mount Gauge on Stainless QC Fitting
MTM Hydro's Pressure Gauge Kits are built specifically as 'Ready to Use' for the fastest set up in effectively measuring running pressure and catching spikes that occur when your gun trigger is released or engaged. Due to the maximum pressure of the fitting, this combo has a max PSI of 6,000, although the gauge goes up to 10,000 PSI.
Use your assembled gauge kit to measure baseline PSI and compare against baseline at later dates for accuracy.
A primary fixed location is most commonly found immediately after the pump or on an unloader port to measure 'Pressure at the Pump' and catch pressure spikes. This location will also alert you of cavitation in pump that you may not hear or feel; the needle on the gauge will bounce and appear to be trembling
A secondary, temporary position is at the base of the spray gun for intermittent checking of pressure to ensure your nozzle does not need to be replaced. This will also catch pressure spikes and alert you of pressure changes over time as your nozzle enlarges due to wear.
