DPPH Series Mechanical Force Gauge (Obsolete) See DG Series

CHATILLON® DPPH and CSD100 push & pull gauges were ideal for a wide range of force testing applications. Chatillon offered this gauge in two versions, The DPPH, for industrial and aerospace applications and the CSD-100 used by physical therapists, insurance investigators, and occupational therapists.
All users of the gauge appreciated the easy to read concentric dial measuring clockwise or counterclockwise depending on the direction of force. Because of the push & pull operation, either end of the gauge may be used for tension or compression. A maximum reading pointer captures peak loads. No wonder why the Chatillon DPPH/CSD100 were the standard of the industry.
Although Chatillon/AMETEK discontinued the production and no longer services the DPPH/CSD-100, JLW Instruments continues to service the gauge and has a supply of parts and used DPPH/CSD-100 gauges in stock. The most common repair is replacing a cracked or shattered bezel and peak reading pointer assembly (MRP assembly). JLW repairs the bezel assembly as well as the entire indicator as well.  JLW also stocks the accessories i.e. handles, extension rod, hook, point, flat, notch, and chisel.
