Depth Gauges are instruments used to measure the depth of water, or depth of slots and holes drilling. Water depth gauges are used by scuba divers to display the equivalent depth in water (sea or river), where as depth gauge micrometers are precision depth measuring instruments used for measuring the depth of holes, slots and recessed areas drilled by drilling machine into wood, wall, or other solid material. Tire tread depth gauges are used to measure the depth of treads in tires (tyres) of vehicles.

Water Depth Gauge

Water depth gauge is a piece of diving equipment often used by SCUBA divers. Most modern diving depth gauges have an electronic mechanism and digital display. Older types used a mechanical mechanism and analogue display. A diver uses a depth gauge with decompression tables and a watch to avoid decompression sickness. A common alternative to the depth gauge, watch and decompression tables is a dive computer. Digital depth gauges commonly also include a timer showing the interval of time that the diver has been submerged. As the gauge only measures water pressure, there is an inherent inaccuracy in the depth displayed by gauges that are used in both fresh water and seawater due to the difference in the densities of fresh water and seawater.

Depth Gauge Micrometer

Depth gauge micrometers are precision depth measuring instruments used by engineers for measuring the depth of holes, slots and recessed areas drilled by drilling machine into wood, wall, or other solid material. Depth gauge micrometers are often required in mechanical engineering work of integration of various mechanical components into a complete system.

Tire Tread Depth Gauge

Tire tread depth gauges are used to measure the depth of treads in tires (tyres) of vehicles. The tread on vehicle’s tires is very important. Tread helps tires adhere to the road, especially during rain or snow. After usage for a while on the road, that tread can be worn away, meaning it’s time to invest in a new set of tires. To determine whether you’ll need new tires, you’ll need to check the depth of your tires’ tread using Tire Tread Depth Gauge.
