Series 490A Hydronic Differential Pressure Manometer
Liquid & Gas Pressure Measurement, ±0.5% FS Accuracy
The SERIES 490A Hydronic Differential Pressure Manometers are versatile, handheld, battery operated manometers available in several basic ranges for positive or positive differential pressure measurement and can tolerate most liquid media compatible with 316LSS. A new feature added to the Series 490A is a field adjustable damping, which allows the user to choose the level of display averaging rate corresponding to the fluctuation level common in many applications.
NEW! 490A-HKIT Option is located in the Product Configurator.
Hydronic meter kit includes: (2) six foot high-pressure rated tubing with shut off valves, high pressure 3-way valve, 8 ft poly tubing for purges, hard travel case, handheld carrying strap, 1/16" x 1 1/2", 1/8" x 3" and 1/8" x 1-1/2" pairs of pressure probes, 90° Flare to 1/4" NPT fittings, adjustable 8" wrench, PTFE Tape, and magnetic protective rubber boot. NIST Calibration Certificate comes standard.

Product Data Sheet
- Can a Slack tube manometer be used for water pressure?
- That style of manometer is to be used with air/gases only. If you need something that reads water pressure, you would want to use something like our Series 490, Series 490A or Series 1211/1212.
