This instrument is used in steam turbine condensers which are operated at pressures below atmospheric pressure.           (In a vacuum condition).

It measures pressures approaching a perfect vacuum.               (0 pressure absolute).

The absolute pressure is indicated by a mercury column, usually expressed in inches of mercury.

This Instrument measures the very low Absolute pressure in the condenser.

The pressure would be about 1.5 inches of mercury

from the 0 at the bottom of the scale

Barometric pressure would be 30 inches of mercury
