Caisson gauges are typically used in hyperbaric chambers, decompression chambers and the like. They incorporate a bourdon tube sealed within a capsule. Unlike standard pressure gauges which indicate the process pressure relative to the ambient environment, Caisson gauges indicate the process pressure relative to the pressure within the capsule. To allow for greater flexibility, Perma-Cal® caisson gauges have a ¼ NPTF port attached to the capsule which allows the user to control the reference pressure.
