Test Equipment FAQs

What is a digital manometer used for?

A digital manometer is used to detect gas leaks and faults in air conditioning systems. It can also be used for monitoring and maintaining HVAC systems and gas pressure in piping and compressor systems. Read more

What is the difference between an analogue manometer and a digital manometer?

Unlike analogue manometers, digital manometers contain a pressure transducer that deflects under pressure. Digital manometers are more accurate than their analogue counterpart and are also easy to read.

The Bromic Manometer Kit provides additional features including:

  • Record function
  • Data hold
  • Large dual LCD with backlight
  • Max/Min/Avg value
  • Low battery indication
  • Auto power off
  • 11 different units of measure

What size test plug do I need?

To select the right test plug size you'll need to know the diameter and back pressure of the pipe. The back pressure can be calculated by determining the height of the water that accumulates from the centerline of the pipe.

Select a test plug based on the compatible pipe size diameter. Ensure that the back pressure of the pipe is less than the test plug's maximum back pressure (psi).

When should I use a mechanical plug instead of a pneumatic plug?

Both pneumatic and mechanical test plugs can be used to test leaks and block off sections of pipelines. The benefit of pneumatic plugs is that they can be used for multiple purposes such as bypassing effluent that is running through a live pipeline. Mechanical plugs such as Bromic Test Plugs are usually recommended for long-term installations as they can fit tightly and create a seal.
