Gauge Pressure

Gauge pressure is defined as the pressure measured with local atmospheric pressure as its reference point. That is Pressure gauge equals Pressure absolute minus Atmospheric pressure.

Gauge pressure measurement is commonly used in Industry, if the data-sheet does not define "psia/MPaa" or "psig/MPag" then it usually pretty safe to assume that the measurement is being made in gauge.
