Labcal uses several dead weight testers which employ the principal of mass and effective area to measure pressure very accurately. These dead weight testers are accredited to UKAS standard with low measurement uncertainties. We specialise in the measurement of very low pressures down to 0.01 Pascal. This is achieved by using mass and effective area on a dead weight tester with a large piston.
The accurate measurement of low pressure is essential for measuring the pressure in ducts and the calibration of pitot tubes. We are also able to calibrate barometers for meteorological applications.
We utilise several pneumatic and hydraulic dead weight testers which measure gauge and absolute pressures from a fraction of a Pascal to 1400 bar.
Typical pressure equipment we are able to calibrate are:
- Dial gauges
- Digital pressure indicators
- Liquid manometers
- Micro manometers
