“This vacuum gauge is built to last,” said Russ Harju, Fieldpiece product manager. “It has all the features technicians told us they want, and it’s rugged enough to withstand the daily use and abuse in the field. The SVG3 is super easy to use, and has more features and benefits than any other vacuum gauge on the market.”
The dual display indicates live vacuum measurement in microns of mercury on the top line, and the rate of micron change, or the alarm stopwatch on the bottom line. When the vacuum reaches the alarm set points, an audible alarm triggers, the backlight flashes and the integrated stopwatch re-starts to show technicians how long the system has maintained a deep vacuum. The technician can set both high and low alarms. The timer can display how long it took to get to the alarm and how long the vacuum has been maintained since the alarm went off.
The SVG3 also includes a Schrader depressor so the HVACR technician can connect it directly to a valve core removal tool or a service port, thereby reducing the number of potentially leaky connections. Attaching the vacuum gauge directly to the service port or a core removal tool also allows techs to get a vacuum measurement as close to the system as possible, giving a truer measurement of the vacuum level in the system.
“Deep vacuums help remove non-condensable gasses that can cause problems in a system,” said Harju. “To do the job right you need to know how long it took to reach a set level and how long it’s been below that level. The SVG3 makes that really easy.”
The SVG3 measures from 9,999 down to 0 microns. The resolution is 1 micron of mercury. The case is rubberized to take the use and abuse seen in the field. A ‘T’ fitting is included for easy connections.
The SVG3 is priced competitively at $169.00 (suggested trade) and can be found at Fieldpiece distributors.
