Hastings Thermocouple Vacuum Gauge Tubes are precision sensing devices designed to provide maximum accuracy in the measurement and control of vacuum. Fully compensated for both temperature and rate of temperature change, the tubes are renowned worldwide for their dependability, and boast a history of success that has endured for over 40 years. Hastings Gauge Tubes use the rugged but sensitive, time-tested Hastings thermopile sensor. Short, firmly connected thermocouples have no suspended weld to an external heater.
