You will require a gauge that is specified as having a non-ferrous probe (NF). Stainless steel is a non-ferrous material. Non-ferrous material will have minimal to no magnetic properties so a Type 1 Magnetic gauge is not reliable. A gauge the relies on eddy current principles for detection is required.
