Mechanical Tire Pressure Gauge

The mechanical tire pressure gauges include heavy duty dial type pressure monitors as well the slim pencil type air pressure guages.

A mechanical tire pressure gauge like the name suggests works on mechanical principle. Inside the guage there is piston on which the scale is fixed and this piston is held by a spring which is slightly pre-compressed. When the tire pressure guge is connected to the valve of the tire, the compressed air will flow into the guage and push the piston up. Since the piston is pushed down by a special spring the travel of the piston will be directly promortional to the air pressure inside your car tire. More the air pressure, farther the piston moves and thus higher will be the air pressure reading. This is the basic working principle of a mechanical tire pressure gauge.
Now let's see the various types of mechanical tire gauges available to measure the air pressure.

Pen/Pencil type Tire Pressure Guages

These are the simplest type of air pressure gauges. They are small in size, easy to carry and cheaper compared to the digital tire pressure gauges. Yet these devices are pretty accurate for normal use.

Dial Type Ture Pressure Gauge

These are bit complex than the simple pen type mechanical tire pressure gauges. Most of the heavy duty tire pressure gauges are dial type.
