    Transformers with no pressure gauge - Nitrogen blanket

    How many of you have run across transformers with no pressure gauges? You can find compound vacuum pressure gauges online that will fit your Tygon hoses that are about 20-50 dollars so you don't jeopardize the blanket.

    Here is one that was recently suggested by another tech at our shop: https://www.amazon.com/Winters-Stain.../dp/B0087UXVEC

    We see alot of them, mostly with the pressure relief valve (with a pull ring). Usually we suggest adding a gauge and regulator like the Qualitrol 070-35C so we don't have to keep messing with it.
