    Air filter differental pressure

    I am installing magnehelic gauges to measure pressure drop across some filter banks. I know it's best to use static pressure tips on each side of the filters, but is it okay to just stub out the tubing on each side. Also is it best to run the tubing to the middle of the filter bank or can you just run it a few inches into the filter section? Most installations I have seen in the past have been just the tubing run about 3 to 10 inches into the unit.

    Thanks for any advise.

    we stub the tubing anywhere on either side of the filters all the time, no need for static pressure probes. Your sensing absolute or gauge pressure and not velocity pressure as in a static application.

    As mentioned previously, you can "stub" the
    tubing in and make it work. In this type of
    situation, it's probably more about how the
    install looks. Will probably look a little more
    professional if you stick something on the end
    of the tubing instead of just poking it in and
    having it hang there.

    Just my 2 cents worth.
