269 Vacuum Pressure Gauge

269 BFMIRA Vaccum Gauge Budenberg Australia @ Procon Instrument Technology

BFMIRA Vacuum Gauge (Can Piercing Test)

The Budenberg model 269 is a high specification vacuum gauge that has been specifically designed for the use in estimating the intensity of vacuum in a food can.

Using an ordinary vacuum gauge fitted with a piercer is usually very inaccurate and does not allow for the dilution of the head space vacuum by entry of air at atmospheric pressure from the gauge. Ordinary vacuum gauges therefore always give a lower reading than the vacuum which existed in the head space before the can was pierced and if the head space is small, the error is compounded.

This Budenberg pressure gauge was developed by the British Food Manufacturing Industries Research Association and it overcomes the disabilities in an ingenious manner.
