Most gauges measure pressure relative to atmospheric pressure as the zero point, so this form of reading is simply referred to as “gauge pressure”. However, anything greater than total vacuum is technically a form of pressure. Everyday pressure measurements, such as for vehicle tire pressure, are usually made relative to ambient air pressure.
In other cases measurements are made relative to a vacuum or to some other specific reference. Negative signs are usually omitted. To distinguish a negative pressure, the value may be appended with the word “vacuum” or the gauge may be labeled a “vacuum gauge. The applicable pressure ranges of many of the techniques used to measure vacuums have an overlap. The zero reference in use is usually implied by context, and these words are added only when clarification is needed. Pressure instruments connected to the system will indicate pressures relative to the current atmospheric pressure. Differential pressures are commonly used in industrial process systems.
Differential pressure gauges have two inlet ports, each connected to one of the volumes whose pressure is to be monitored. In effect, such a gauge performs the mathematical operation of subtraction through mechanical means, obviating the need for an operator or control system to watch two separate gauges and determine the difference in readings. Moderate vacuum pressure readings can be ambiguous without the proper context, as they may represent absolute pressure or gauge pressure without a negative sign. If the absolute pressure of a fluid stays constant, the gauge pressure of the same fluid will vary as atmospheric pressure changes. The absolute pressure in the tire is essentially unchanged. A sealed gauge reference is very similar except that atmospheric pressure is sealed on the negative side of the diaphragm. Then the output signal is offset so the pressure sensor reads close to zero when measuring atmospheric pressure.
US and Canada, for measuring, for instance, tire pressure. Fluid density and local gravity can vary from one reading to another depending on local factors, so the height of a fluid column does not define pressure precisely. Temperature fluctuations change the value of fluid density, while location can affect gravity. Flow, however, applies additional pressure on surfaces perpendicular to the flow direction, while having little impact on surfaces parallel to the flow direction. While static gauge pressure is of primary importance to determining net loads on pipe walls, dynamic pressure is used to measure flow rates and airspeed. Dynamic pressure can be measured by taking the differential pressure between instruments parallel and perpendicular to the flow. The presence of the measuring instrument inevitably acts to divert flow and create turbulence, so its shape is critical to accuracy and the calibration curves are often non-linear.
Many instruments have been invented to measure pressure, with different advantages and disadvantages. Pressure range, sensitivity, dynamic response and cost all vary by several orders of magnitude from one instrument design to the next. Hydrostatic gauge measurements are independent of the type of gas being measured, and can be designed to have a very linear calibration. They have poor dynamic response.
The difference in fluid height in a liquid column manometer is proportional to the pressure difference. Liquid column gauges consist of a column of liquid in a tube whose ends are exposed to different pressures. The difference in liquid level represents the applied pressure. When expressed as a pressure head, pressure is specified in units of length and the measurement fluid must be specified. So, for example, pressure head might be written “742.
F” for measurements taken with mercury or water as the manometric fluid, respectively. The word “gauge” or “vacuum” may be added to such a measurement to distinguish between a pressure above or below the atmospheric pressure. Both mm of mercury and inches of water are common pressure heads which can be converted to S. Liquid-column pressure gauges have a highly linear calibration. They have poor dynamic response because the fluid in the column may react slowly to a pressure change. When measuring liquid pressure, a loop filled with gas or a light fluid can isolate the liquids to prevent them from mixing but this can be unnecessary, for example when mercury is used as the manometer fluid to measure differential pressure of a fluid such as water.
