Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Is PSI and PSIG the same?

If not how would I convert PSIG to PSI? For example 42PSIG

Thanks for your time.

PSIG stands for pressure per sq. inch gage. It means that when your gage is calibrated at certain altitud and room tempereture it's only acurate for local use. In other words if the same gage already calibrated is taken to another location with different altitud and temp. You will not get the same results. PSI is PSIG.

1 atmosphere = 14.7 psia = 0 psig. PSIG is gauge pressure, while PSIa is atmospheric pressure plus guge pressure.
