Service Info: Proper Cleaning of Hale Gauges SB-181

Hale is committed to the safety of you and your community. To help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and other infectious diseases, many users include gauges in their cleaning and decontamination procedures.
Hale gauge lenses are manufactured from acrylic. The use of cleaners and disinfectants that contain ammonia, alcohol, denatured alcohol, acetone, vinegar, mineral spirits, etc., will cause spider cracking on the lens. When cracked, the gauge face may leak or could be difficult to read, requiring replacement.

To clean gauges please see the following Service Bulletin from Sept 2010
