6500 Series Gauge
4 Bolt Gauge for Low Pressure Tanks (0 – 25 PSIG)
The 6500 Series Senior gauges are designed for use in low pressure tanks 0-25 psig [0-1,7Bar] containing diesel fuel, gasoline, fuel oil and lubricating oils.
Used in many applications such as construction equipment, stationary generators, boats, farm equipment and home heating.
General Information & Features
The 6500 Series Senior gauges are available in gear-action models for top, centerline or angle mounting. In lever-action models, centerline is only available.
The standard float is nitrile rubber. Aluminum or stainless steel floats are available at extra cost. The gauge is mounted to a mating Senior flange 2 1⁄2″ bolt circle [63,5mm] using four 1⁄4″-28 x 9⁄16″ long bolts. The gasket is Buna-N.
