High accuracy pressure test gauges are used to calibrate and verify the accuracy of pressure gauges when first manufactured, for certification requirements and general servicing.
Test gauges have dials of 100mm, 200mm and 250mm which allows for more divisions, and knife-edge needles to show with pinpoint accuracy the scale reading when testing, calibrating or certifying. The accuracy is categorised into different accuracy classes from ±0.1% (Digital pressure test gauge), ±0.15% (Super test gauge), ±0.2% (Master test gauge) and ±0.25% (Standard test gauge).
The applications that test gauges are generally used for includes:
Calibration of pressure gauges, pressure switches, transducers and transmitters.
Calibration of pneumatic controllers, valves etc.
Measurement of pressure on testbeds in Aero, hydraulic systems, diesel engine injection systems.
Setting of pressure relief valves.
Measurement of pore water pressure in soil mechanics laboratories.
Efficiency testing of steam turbines in power stations, gas turbines and compressors.
As world leaders in pressure test gauges, Budenberg Gauge manufactures a wide range of highly accurate pressure test gauges. All Budenberg Gauges are supplied with a detailed calibration certificate that is traceable to National Standards and meets EN837 requirements. The range of test gauges includes:
Standard Test Gauge
Model 5214: 0.25% Accuracy, 0 to 600 mbar up to 0 to 2,500 bar Pressure
The Budenberg standard test gauge includes a base test gauge accuracy to a maximum of 500 graduations, a knife-edged pointer and an anti-parallax mirror to help reduce the chance of human error.
Mountings available include direct, surface and flush models

Master Test Gauge
Model 5314: 0.2% Accuracy, 0 to 600 mbar up to 0 to 2,500 bar Pressure
The master test gauge is housed in a diecast safety pattern case and meets the full requirements of EN837. The anti-parallax mirror scale, knife-edge pointer and large 250mm case allow for easy reading accuracy.
Recalibration is simplified by the inclusion of a micrometer adjustable pointer and printed calibration marks on the dials.
Direct, Surface and flush mountings are available.
Super Test Gauge
Model 5414: 0.15% Accuracy, 0 to 1 bar up to 0 to 1,600 bar Pressure
The Budenberg super test gauge has a high specification. It incorporates a diecast safety pattern case, an anti-parallax mirror scale and knife-edge pointer for accurate repeatable readings. Recalibration is simplified with the inclusion of a micrometer adjustable pointer and printed calibration marks on the dials.
Direct surface and flush models are available.
Depending on the pressure to be tested, different pressure elements are used. Up to 70 Bar a Beryllium Copper bourdon tube and Brass Chrome-plated connection is used. From 700 bar up to 1,600 bar a Ni-Span C coil tube and Stainless Steel connection is used.
Digital Pressure Test Gauge (Pressure Sensor)
Model BG100: 0.1% Accuracy, 0 to 600 mbar up to 0 to 2,500 bar Pressure
Digital pressure gauges are incredibly versatile, they can be quickly set-up, easy to read and extremely portable. Budenbergs digital pressure gauge is controlled by a microprocessor that offers high precision, stability and functionality in a compact and robust solution package.
The gauge is powered by a long-life internal Alkaline battery and offers an auto power-off function in order to preserve the battery life. The sensor technology combined with advance designed features results in a high accurate yet affordable digital pressure gauge.
Just some of the BG100 advanced features include:
- Programmable filter from 0 to 99 for pulsing pressure readings
- Zero function for zero pressure correction.
- Pressure-bar graph in addition to the number indication, BG100 displays pressure on a segment bar for quick estimation of the pressure between 0 and 100 % of F.S.
- Selectable pressure unit: mbar, bar, MPa, kg/cm², lb/in².
- Peak function
- RS232 interface (optional)
