About Manifold Gauge Sets
Among HVAC gauges, a manifold gauge set is a particularly essential piece of testing equipment because it is used in so many ways for a variety of purposes, including vacuuming, testing, and recovery. The basic set consists of two pressure valves: a low pressure valve and a high pressure valve. Some sets have up to 4 valves. Valve readout options include either analog meters or digital displays. Sets vary by brand, inclusions and other considerations.
