P-1590 and R-1590 sprinkler system gauges from AMETEK US Gauge are designed for use on wet or dry sprinkler

The R-1590 retarded air gauge is used on the sprinkler-head side of the control valve in a dry system to monitor line air pressure. It also accepts water pressuresup to 250 psi when the system is activated. The P-1590 is used on the water supply side of a wet system where water is available to the sprinkler head at up to
300 psi.

AMETEK, a manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices in Horsham, Pa., says both models feature a polycarbonate one-piece ring and crystal window, plus an impact- and chemical-resistant moulded case. 31
