U-tube manometer with red or green color concentrate measures positive, negative, and differential pressure for determining velocity and static pressures, leakage, fan and blower efficiency, filter resistance, and gas pressures
Columns composed of 1/8" outside diameter flexible and shatterproof clear butyrate tubing for use with water, red fluid, or mercury (sold separately)
Choice of calibration in inH2O or mmH2O using water for use with fluorescein green concentrate or mercury (sold separately), or red gauge fluid
Choice of measuring range with 1/10 inH2O (2mmH2O on metric units) graduations silkscreened in jet black on stark white scale to ease reading
Includes one bottle of red or green gauge fluid
Dwyer 1222 series Flex-Tube U-tube type manometer uses red gauge fluid, or mercury or green color concentrate to provide positive, negative, and differential pressure measurement for determining velocity and static pressures, leakage, fan and blower efficiency, filter resistance, and gas pressures. The columns are composed of 1/8" outside diameter flexible and shatterproof clear butyrate tubing for use with colored water, red fluid, or mercury (sold separately). The manometer is calibrated in inH2O or mmH2O using water and is available in W/M-style for use with fluorescein green concentrate or mercury (sold separately), or D-style for use with red gauge fluid. The water column has 1/10" divisions for inch scales or 2mm for metric units. Units are silkscreened in black on a white background to ease reading. The manometer has magnetic clips to mount on vertical surfaces and a clamp bar to prevent slipping. Magnets are removable to customize mounting. The manometer includes a bottle of fluorescein green or red gauge fluid.

H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Manometers measure the pressure of a liquid or gas. They are used in laboratory, medical equipment, engineering, automotive, and heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning applications. Manometers measure any combination of gauge, absolute, or differential pressures. Gauge pressure is the amount of pressure in a system relative to the ambient pressure, absolute pressure is the amount of pressure in a system relative to an absolute vacuum, and differential pressure is the difference between two pressures. Analog manometers are composed of columns of liquid, and they use gravity and the liquid's density to calculate pressure. Because they have no moving parts, analog manometers do not require re-calibration. Digital manometers have pressure sensors that are connected to a system with a hose to provide a digital readout of the amount of pressure present in a system. They use microprocessors to calculate pressure, and they require periodic calibration to help ensure accuracy.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
After installing a new furnace, the installation manual stated that one of these tools were needed adjust the fuel control valve. Having never seen one of these, I made my choice based upon the number of Water Column inches I needed; 11 maximum, so this was perfect. I was shocked at how tall the item is, but then again, it is designed to measure the fluid inside the tube, and the gradients are real inch marks.
Seems like a well made instrument that I probably only need once in my lifetime, but it was worth the quality, and the money that I saved in calibrating the valve myself. My control valve required 1/4" hose, but this comes with 1/8" barbs. It is easy enough to buy a 1/8" id clear vinyl hose and a ribbed coupler where you can tie in a 1/4" clear vinyl hose.
If you can figure out how to use this tool, it is well made and sold at a good price.
Seems to work well and easy to use. The amount of fluid provided is a bit sparse, but otherwise a good purchase.
I USE THIS ITEM ON A DAILY BUSINESS, AS A COMMERCIAL GAS TECH. THANKS.
