Mercury Use in Measuring Devices [PDF]
Abstract: This fact sheet summarizes the use of mercury in products that measure physical data, such as temperature, pressure, or humidity. It is based on data obtained only from the Interstate Mercury Education & Reduction Clearinghouse (IMERC) Mercury-Added Products Database. The measuring devices using mercury that are included in this fact sheet are barometers, hydrometers, manometers, psychrometers, sphygmomanometers, strain gauges and thermometers. These devices must use mercury in its elemental form to be included in this fact sheet. Measuring devices that contain mercury solely from the use of a button cell battery are excluded. Thermostats are covered in a separate fact sheet. (PDF Format; Length: 5 pages)
