7600 Series

Stainless Steel, Magnetic Liquid-Level Gauges

Application

Rochester 7600 Series gauges with all stainless-steel construction and a large nickel-plated Alnico magnet are especially suitable for marine applications of bilge oil, hydraulic oil, water and sea water. Where stainless steel construction is not required, use 6900 Series.

General Information & Features

Like all Rochester magnetic, liquid-level gauges, the 7600 Series gauges are built to high standards of instrumentation. Rochester completely seals off the inside liquid from the outside head and dial capsule, thereby eliminating many hazards and also permitting quick dial replacement without losing liquid. Dial capsules are hermetically sealed and vacuum tested to eliminate dial fogging. The dial capsule may be replaced by removing just two screws.

Another superior feature is the rugged gear drive with shrouded stainless steel beveled gear designed to shed or work out any loose particles which might affect action.
