    What kind off pressure gauges should (and should not) be used for steam?
    I'm guessing all stainless or non-ferrous internals.
    Dry or liquid filled? (I see the recommended operating temp range for glycerin filled gauges is 40-140F.)
    thanks!

    The gauge should always be connected with a condensing U-bend or coil so that it does not see steam.
