Princo Instruments, Inc. has discontinued the manufacture and sale of all
products containing mercury: Absolute Pressure Gauges, Barometers, Stokes McLeod
Gauges and Thermostats.
In recent years, mercury, a
hazardous material, has been deemed to be a major health risk and there are
environmental groups and government agencies working toward the goal of “virtual
elimination” of mercury.
As a result of their
efforts, in the US, numerous States (CA, CT, ME, NY, RI, & VT) have completely
banned the manufacture and/or sale of products containing mercury and many
others are considering such legislation. Additionally, government regulations
have placed restrictions on the transportation of products containing mercury,
resulting in high transportation costs and increased administration and
We sincerely appreciate your
past business and regret any inconvenience that this may cause you.
