Safety of Hydrogen Pressure Gauges

A study of the relative safety of various gauge case designs has been conducted. This study was initiated to determine the protection afforded an operator by a gauge case if the gauge pressure sensing element should rupture from overpressure, corrosion, fatigue, or—in the case of some materials—hydrogen embrittlement. Whatever the cause of rupture, personnel safety is of major importance.
