Gauge Feature Restores Factory Settings
The AccuGauge AG200 digital pressure gauge from American Sensor Technologies displays each of the following measuring units: pounds per square inch, bar, kg/cm, inches, H2O and Hg. It also offers the option of viewing the 4-20mA output signal on the LCD display.
Users can evaluate the loop current to ensure the system is set up correctly and adjust the current in 2 milliamp increments by using the test button.
By selecting a pressure reference, the AG200’s factory set calibration points and output can be reset or adjusted. The factory settings can be restored at any time. The AG200 can be used in applications such as process controls, test stands and data loggers.

Micro-Mill II Pulverizes Small Samples
The Micro-Mill II sample grinder from Bel-Art Products is designed for high speed milling of small samples from 20-50ml. The 150W motor drives a stainless blade that pulverizes materials such as bone, chemicals, frozen tissue, minerals and pharmaceuticals. Softer samples like wood can be processed by adding dry ice.
The driving chamber assembly is removable, allowing for complete sample recovery and cleaning. Additional accessory chambers are available to further reduce cross contamination. For users pulverizing very hard material, a stellite faced hardened blade is available.
