An instrument for measuring the tension or elastic force of gases, steam, etc., constructed usually on the principle of allowing the gas to exert its elastic force in raising a column of mercury in an open tube, or in compressing a portion of air or other gas in a closed tube with mercury or other liquid intervening, or in bending a metallic or other spring so as to set in motion an index; a pressure gauge. See Pressure, and Illust. of Air pump.
A gage for measuring pressure or a pressure difference between two fluid chambers. A U-tube manometer consists of two legs, each containing a liquid of known specific gravity.
A device for measuring pressure by means of a column of liquid. The height of the liquid is direcly proportional to the pressure being measured.
An instrument for measuring pressure that usually consists of a U-shaped tube containing a liquid, the surface of which in one end of the tube moves proportionally with pressure changes on the liquid in the other end. Also, a tube type of differential pressure gauge.
A U-shaped tube filled with the specific liquid. The difference in height between the liquid in each leg of the tube gives directly the difference in pressure on each leg of the tube. Used to monitor differential pressure.
An instrument used to measure low gas pressure.
A ¡°U¡±-shaped tube containing liquid, the levels of which in each limb of the ¡°U¡± reflect the pressure difference between the ends.
A U-shaped device used to measure pressure difference.
Compare with barometer. An instrument for measuring gas pressures. A mercury or oil manometer measures gas pressure as the height of a fluid column the gas sample is able to support. Open manometers measure gas pressure relative to atmospheric pressure.
An instrument for measuring pressure that is usually constructed from a transparent U-tube and partially filled with a liquid such as water, mercury or oil. The relative amount of displacement of the liquid between the two legs of the U indicates the excess of pressure being exerted on one side or the other.

Device used for measuring small pressures.
An instrument for measuring pressure of gases and vapors. Gas pressure is balanced against a column of liquid in a U-shaped tube.
A tube in the shape of a U, partially filled with liquid of suitable density. When points of different pressure are connected to respective ends of the manometer, the liquid is pushed up in the low-pressure side of the manometer, and the difference in liquid level between the two sides of the U is an indication of pressure difference. (One side may be open to atmosphere for gauge pressure measurement.)
Device to measure the pressure being delivered by a CPAP machine (usually measured in centimetres of water [cm H2O] - where a common CPAP pressure is about 10).
An instrument for measuring the pressure of gases and vapors. A mercury barometer is a type of manometer.
Measures fluid pressure. This is a U-shaped tube containing liquid which adjusts with the pressure in the tube.
Instrument for measuring the pressure of gases, vapors and liquids.
An instrument used to measure the pressure of vapors and gases.
An instrument for measuring pressure. Usually, a manometer is a glass tube filled with a liquid that is used to measure the difference in pressure across a flow-measuring device such as an orifice or Venturi meter. The instrument used to measure blood pressure is a type of manometer.
An instrument for measuring fluid pressure. Typically a U-shaped tube in which opposing fluid pressures reach an equilibrium. The pressure is equal to the differences in the levels of the fluid on either side of the tube.
a type of gauge that uses displacement of a liquid column to measure pressure. Examples would be an EZ-Read or Dubrovin gauge.
A manometer is an instrument used to measure the pressure of any fluid or the difference in pressure between two fluids, whether gas or liquid.
An instrument for measuring pressures: especially a U-tube partially filled with a liquid, usually water, mercury, or light oil, so constructed that the amount of displacement of the liquid indicates the pressure being exerted on the instrument.
A device that measures pressure.
An instrument used for measuring the pressure of liquids and gases. An open-tube manometer consists of a U-shaped tube that usually contains a liquid such as mercury or water. One end of the tube is open to the atmosphere and the other end of the tube is connected to the container where the pressure is to be measured.
An instrument used for measuring pressure, usually a "U" tube filled with a liquid. The liquid may be water, oil or mercury.
An instrument for measuring differences of pressure. The weight of a column of liquid enclosed in a tube is balanced by the pressures applied at its opposite ends, and the pressure difference is computed from the hydrostatic equation mercury barometer is a type of manometer.
A pressure gauge for gases and liquids.
A u-shaped device for measuring the static pressure at a point relative to some other point. This pressure difference causes water to rise or fall. The difference in the level of the water columns is equivalent to the pressure differential.
Also called a draft gauge, this device is used to measure slight changes in a low-pressure system, such as an HVAC system, or for remotely measuring a level in a tank of liquid. One end of the U-shaped tube, which contains fluid and is marked with a graduated scale for measuring, is open and the opposite end is connected to the low-pressure source. The fluid in the tube is moved or displaced by slight pressure changes and the change can be read on the scale, which is calibrated to read directly in the desired units of measure.
