    Digital Manometer

    Hello,

    I'm in the market for a digital manometer.....I'm mainly going to use it for checking/adjusting gas pressure on residential furnaces. Any suggestions would be appreciated?

    Testo (not sure what model would be good for this application)
    Yellow Jacket

    Thanks

    The testo 510 is an excellent choice because of the versatility, look at the specifications, it does a lot more than just inches h20, you can also do an average with a pitot tube and read direct FPM. Plus it has a nice magnet on the back for hands free.

    You should see these at the supply houses soon also, Johnstone, Sid Harvey Ect.

    The UEI EM200 is fairly popular, but the top sellers for us are the single port Yellow Jacket 78050 and the dual port Fieldpiece SDMN5; both have proven to be reliable units.

    I use the Testo 506-3, the 510 looks good too.
    Stay away from the UEI if you want anything something accurate, only thing it's good for is throwing.
    Don't know about the Fieldpiece, but I have a couple of their multimeters and have been very pleased.

    Is the Testo product actually rated for measuring combustible gases?

    I perfer the Yellow Jacket 78055 test kit http://www.hvacr-tools.com/mm5/merch...ANIFOLDSGAUGES .
    I like seeing the needle move/more dependable than a digital manometer.

    i have a set of them. I find they are not as accurate as the digital one.(Especially at low pressures)

    I have converted to digital, and I will never go back. Most digital manometers do more the just inches of water. I wish I had bucked up to get the dual port though.
    I STARTED WITH NOTHING, AND I STILL HAVE MOST OF IT!

    I've had a dual ported Dwyer digital for about ten years now and never have had any problems. I would definately go for dual port since alot of equipment uses differential proving devices.
