Here's the Numatics PLS-B

Just waiting to get a connector to hook it up to the 1/8" lines on the EMP gauge.

The inline filter might get plugged pretty fast.
How an automatic water trap? I've used some small light ones for pneumatics.

I just like the looks of this one...

I'm not sure where that term came from.

We'll see how it works. The problem I think you'll have with all the other filters I've seen is that they're so big compared to the size of the soot particles which are less than 1 micron. Now they agglomerate together to be bigger particles and will eventually plug up the damping orifice in the back of the gauge which is roughly 500 microns.

I've always heard the fittings called as "Push to Connect"

There really shouldn't be much flow in to the gauge, it is a closed off tube after all. Clogging of the filter shouldn't be much of a concern as long as it is mounted somewhat downstream.

Thus my suggestion of a dip in the tube to collect moisture and act as a trap.

Hopefully I can get the numatics PLS-B filter installed this weekend. I found tubing/adapters to make it go inline with my 1/8" tubing, just need to take a little time to install it.

I stumbled across these on Cole Parmer's website looking for something else at work the other day

http://www.coleparmer.com/Category/C...e_Filters/1267.

Cheaper per unit, but higher minimum's.

I use the larger one for vacuum system in electronic soldering tool. (fume extractor on desoldering gun)
Is pretty weak for pressure on tdi, i dont test but with my mouth, the filter wall bend a lot.
Smaller filter (diameter like one way vale on TDI) are stronger, is possible this filter hold the pressure you need.

The pressure rating is 60 psi at 25c for the 50mm ones and is 87 psi at 25c for the 15 and 25mm ones. Probably good for most single turbo applications

I bought the adapters and come to find out that the tubing on the HI gauge is just a bit bigger than 1/8" so the 1/8-1/4 adapters I purchased don't work

It must be 5/32 or metric - that's what I get for assuming instead of measuring...

I'll get the right adapters ordered on Monday and have them Tuesday then hopefully be able to get this installed.

When I was installing mine the salesperson at Stuart hose gold me the tubing was 4mm.
When I asked him how he could tell without looking at it he responded "It is marked on the push lock fittings"
I never noticed it until he pointed it out.

Well, 5/32 is within 0.0015" of 4mm and I can't find a 1/4" to 4mm adapter so we'll get one of those.

Try any parker fittings place. They usually have M4 to imperial barb fittings.

I use 5/32 for 4mm all the time in my machines and fixtures.

I got this installed last week finally - Ignored the max temp limit and put it under the hood, but it's winter so it'll be fine for a while. I cleaned out the tubes with brake cleaner and compressed air until they were clean.

Once I cleaned it out the gauge a month or so ago, I noticed that it buzzed a lot on the exhaust side. So much so that I pulled the car over just a few blocks from home and filled the tube with brake cleaner and it damped the signal nicely. I did not have this buzz when new so maybe things have loosened up a bit in the gauge?



So, I left it in for a week and took a few pictures of it this morning. I did notice that it was freezing still and given the water in it, it's no surprise. However, the filter itself is keeping the soot out of the gauge.

Clean tube
