I just had an old Varian 845 controller blow up and take its two type 531 gages out. The replacement controller we had on hand also used the 531 so I dutifully installed a new pair of this dubious gage with the new controller. The gages are Duniway.

The bloody things were contaminated with a hydrocarbon. I was able to bake them out successfully, but this shouldn't happen. The lot was dated August 99.
