Perfect Partners for St Valentine’s day

Today is Saint Valentine’s day and despite the fact that the historical origins of this commemorative day are quite often overlooked and are, in truth, somewhat vague and confused, many of us annually get swept up and carried away by this romantic phenomenon.

It is somewhat of an understate to say that a fair amount of money is spent on Valentine’s day around the globe, but it seems that the majority of this expenditure goes on items which have very little to do with the meaning of the day…

As the legend goes…

As various legends go, St. Valentine was a priest in Rome, martyred for performing wedding ceremonies for soldiers who were banned from marrying. it seems then that flowers and chocolates (although stereotypically romantic presents) actually have little to do with the key point of the day – that he was involved in pairing up people who were meant to be together.

Perfect Partners for Valentine’s day

Following on from this thought then, it would seem that the most appropriate way to spend money, would be on something that would symbolically represent this match making prowess,the perfect partners…like, the Testo 550-2 digital refrigeration manifold and the Testo 552 digital vacuum gauge – a match made in heaven and made real with our Testo refrigeration set package.

And they say romance is dead… Buy the ultimate romantic’s present online now on the Testo website. Happy St. Valentine’s day to all.

  1. I’m thinking of investing in the 552 vac gauge. I own a set off 557’s and also own a set of 570’s. I love the way the gauge will interact with both manifolds. But I feel slightly concerned that I have to have it close to the manifolds to be able to enter slave mode. I thought the best point to measure vacuum was at the furthest point from the vac pump as possible. If working on a crac unit then nine times out of ten I’ll attach my vac gauge to the outdoor unit whilst pulling my vacuum indoors. Do you do a long extension lead say 30 meters to allow me to overcome this issue? Also why does it have to be a male thread to attach this to a unit? My current gauge is a female thread therefore I can attach onto a 1/4″ check point without the requirement for a gauge line. Do you do a converter to allow the 552 to do the same?

    • Hi Owen, Hope that you are happy with the testo 557 and 570 that you already own and it’s great to hear that you are interested in the testo 552. It is worth mentioning that you can use the testo 552 with both, but the testo 552 will only connect with the testo 570 for use with the software – the testo 557 has no connector for the testo 552. With regard to your point about proximity, you are correct – if you are not nearby, then the idea is that the 552 is used as a stand-alone device rather than the manifold being used as a slave.

      Regarding your questions about the accessories – unfortunately, we do not have extension leads of that length as standard but we could look into whether one could be specially made if it was a requirement. Similarly we do not at present have an converter of the sort that you describe, but one compatible might well be available in shops to use as an addition to your testo products.

      I hope that this answers your questions but if you do need any clarifications or additional information please just let us know. You can reach one of our technical sales team on – 01420 544 433.

      Kind regards,

      • Hi there, great news about the possibility of doing a really long lead would be great if you could get me a price? Ordered the 552’s today just waiting for your stock levels to be replenished before I can get it though. I have been informed by my supplier today that the 552’s do not come with the data lead as standard? Can you let me know what size the normal lead is please…

      • With regard to your question on the size of the normal lead, it is 1.2m in length. We are currently enquiring further about a specially made, extra-long lead for you and we will get back to you with more details as soon as possible. Hope that this is alright. Best regards,

      • Nice one chap!

  2. Hey, got a question for you. Could you guys make a case for my 570’s that would fit my printer, sensors and the 552 gauge in it? I’ve noticed you do something similar for the 550’s and the 552 etc???

  3. Good afternoon Owen,
    Regarding the specially made extra-long extension lead that you asked about – we have had a quote back from our head office for £258. This sounds a lot considering the cost of the instrument but it is due to the fact that it would be a custom made accessory.

    Also, regarding the case you asked after to hold both the 570, 552, printer etc. – Unfortunately we don’t currently make a case which is capable of holding everything that you mention, just the standard testo 570 transport case which should be listed as an accessory to this product on the website. Apologies, that this was not better news and if you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

    Best regards,
