Over 160 years ago, Edward
Ashcroft saw the need for safer, more sophisticated pressure and
temperature instruments for use in the emerging steam industry. In
response, he introduced a then-revolutionary new Bourdon tube pressure
gauge. The rest is history...
Times continue to change and so do the needs of industry. Products
manufactured by Ashcroft Inc. have become the benchmark in pressure and
temperature measurement and include gauges, thermometers, switches,
transducers, transmitters, instrument isolators and diaphragm seals and
control and calibration equipment.
Specified around the world
for the most demanding requirements, these instruments are widely
recognized under the brand names Ashcroft,® Heise,® Willy,® and
Weksler.® And you can find them in wastewater treatment facilities,
biotech and pharmaceutical labs, medical applications, semiconductor
facilities, refineries, power generation plants, food processing plants,
pulp and paper mills, chemical manufacturing plants and the host of
support companies that serve these industries.
Our team consists of experts
ready to help resolve even the most difficult applications and technical
issues. If you require broader specifications than our standard product

Safety is a critical issue,
and our instrument audit can improve the safety or your plant. Industry
surveys indicate that 20% to 30% of customers’ instruments are
misapplied and fail prematurely due to pulsation and vibration, allowing
the process media or liquid fill to escape and cause environmental
damage or even harm those nearby. Experts from Ashcroft Inc. can help
identify areas of concern before they become problems. This important
service will help prevent accidents, avoid misapplications and save
money and time.
