TELEVAC 4A Convection

The TELEVAC 4A convection gauge provides reliable, fast response measurement from atmosphere to 10-3 Torr. Its high accuracy and repeatability help ensure that processes start at the desired pressure time after time. The gauge has fast response time – in milliseconds rather than seconds as is the case with thermocouple-type gauges. The convection gauge measures absolute pressures by determining the heat loss from a fine wire filament maintained at a constant temperature.

The TELEVAC 4A Convection Features

  • Provides continuous and accurate vacuum indication
  • Cost-effective nickel-plated brass and rugged stainless steel construction with simple design for easy operation
  • Millisecond response time rather than seconds for thermocouple-type gauges
  • Cost-effective gauge tube for fundamental applications
