Gauge Mounting & Connection

Lower mount (LM), center back mount (CBM), and/or lower back mount (LBM) are available for most gauge types. Most of our standard gauges have NPT, BSP or BSPT threaded connections. Many gauges can be panel mounted using either a U-clamp bracket or a front flange option. Pressure gauges should be mounted in the upright position if possible.
