    Digital Gauges

    I'm looking to buy some digital gauges that read superheat, subcooling, and microns. I'm looking to spend around $300 what would be the best quality for the money???

    digi-cool

    Micron gauges are for reading microns in a vacuum. Refrigerant gauges are for reading pressures

    ...and they are best kept separate.

    Installing a micron gauge in a manifold set designed for service is asking for trouble.

    Do yourself a favor and buy separate instruments.

    Yellow Jacket's Refrigeration System Analyzer cost around $725 and Fieldpiece SMAN3 cost around $350. Remember, you get what you pay for! Sometimes you get even less. Don't buy a digital gauge set just because it's digital, calculates subcooling, calculates superheat and has a built in micron gauge. If it only last 6-12 month before you have to send it in to be re-calibrated what's the point? How many units were serviced incorrectly before you realized it was no longer calibrated correctly? How much does re-calibration cost? Hope this helped.

    it wont be much longer until doug has the ak 900 ready to
    ship. in my opinion the digicool is the best of all of them &
    tgere is a lot of peace of mind knowing you have very
    good customer support with only a phone call.
