    Thermal Engineering is the way to go

    Model 14571 is an analog micron gauge with dual power source, will run off of 2 D batteries or can be plugged into any 110V outlet. These arent the cheapest gauge but it is reliable as all get out.

    Another vote for the Thermal Engineering Gauge. Anything else is a disposable toy.

    Yes I once thought the same but I retired my Thermal Engendering for BluVac and am very pleased I did so. A world of difference between the two.

    I have only used the Thermal model14571 and found that it works very well. We have had a few problems in the last year with the thermistors going bad for some reason though. After reading this thread I am really intrigued with the blu vac! Might have to try one.

    Accutools BluVac or BluVac LTE is a hands down winner.

    the blu vac is the ultimate in micron gauges in my opinion.
    i never thought i would park my mercury manometers but did shortly after
    using the blu vac a few times.

    There can be only one!
    The one, the only- Yeller Jacket!









    Actually I'm getting the Blur-Vac next time around- everyone raves about it so much.

    I agree, however I have the newer 69075. Been reliable since 2007, and the tray to the right holds a few gadgets I use from time to time.

    With any micron gauge, do not let pressure hit the sensor... they do not like that, and are expensive.

    The YJ put up with it for a long time... then quit.

    We will see what the BlueVac does...

    I have the JB supernova, works well however you need to get Tee for it to work. the supco micron gauge doesn't require one but i've heard many complaints about it from other tech's in my company.

    I have this unit, it's a piece of ****. compared to the analog, this jb is very inconsistent.
