What pipe dry testing kit sizes are available?

See Best Plumbers Tools

Pipe dry testing kits are categorised by the measurement of pressure on the scale of a gauge.     Pipe dry testing kits are commonly measured in bar, but often come with a scale that reads psi (Pounds per square inch) and sometimes kPa (KiloPascals). Pipe dry testing kits are categorised by the unit of pressure measurement on the scale of a gauge. Pipe dry testing kits are commonly measured in bar, but often come with a scale that reads psi (pounds per square Inch) and sometimes kPa (kiloPascals).
As dry pipe testing only needs a small amount of pressure to work, these types of testing gauges are only available with a scale reading of 0-4 bar.     Over pressuring a pipe system can cause damage to the pipes or even the equipment being used to test the pipes. As dry pipe testing involves testing smaller pressures, these types of gauges are only available with a scale reading of 0-4 bar (0-60 psi and 0-400 kPa). Over-pressuring a pipe system can cause damage to the pipes or even the equipment being used to test the pipes.
When it comes to testing different types of pipe systems then gauges are available with higher pressure readings. For testing different types of pipe systems, gauges that allow higher pressure readings to be taken are available.

Oil is sometimes present in the display to dampen the reading – that is, to prevent the needle reacting too quickly and swinging either side of the reading point before it settles.

The measuring ranges of domestic pipe testing kits can vary from 0-25 bar. Domestic testing kits include pipe dry testing and wet testing.     The pressure of domestic pipe systems never tend to exceed 4-5 bar, however, 7-8 bar can be reached when there is a spike in pressure.     Pressure spikes can occur when air is trapped within the pipes of a system.

Pressure spikes can occur when air is trapped within the pipes of a system.

Industrial pipe testing kits have a pressure measurement of up to 4000 bar. Industrial pipe testing kits can measure pressures of up to 4000 bar.
Testing gauges can also be purchased with different sized faces.     Larger faces will enable the user to read the scale easier, and smaller faces will be useful for systems that are in confined spaces.
