    Testing & setting presuretrol

    I made this device to test presuretrols and recalibrate
    Them by adjusting the set screw until I get what I need
    Leaving the fittings loose on tester lets the presure drop slowly
    After it trips to see when it closes.
    Works very well. I've had new presuretrols out of the box
    Not shut off until 7 lbs. while it was set to 1lb.

    great idea

    Honeywell should be embarrassed into doing something about this but because they have a monopoly they just continue to ship crap.It's a crime that they don't have any competition.

    Great idea.

    Thanks for sharing. Seems a shame you have to do this on a brand-new product.
