On the Subject of Color Bypassed Manometers

A story of pressure ... but OPTIMIZED!

Step 1: Determining the target pressure

  • Use the table TARGET to find the Target pressure.
  • The rows are the "minus button" color, the columns the "screen" color.
  • If your "+ button" is orange, use the value on the right.

Table TARGET:

Minus\Screen black blue orange yellow purple
blue 16 | 12 14 | 13 14 | 11 18 | 13 12 | 14
orange 24 | 12 15 | 11 21 | 14 27 | 13 18 | 13
yellow 32 | 16 20 | 14 28 | 14 30 | 18 24 | 12

Step 2: Determining the maximum pressure of each manometer

Refer to the table on the next page for the maximum pressures. Find the colors of the manometers and use the pressures associated with the first condition met.
