The Pressure Calibration Process
Computerized pressure modules with capacities from vacuum to 40,000 PSI are used to perform pressure calibration and record the readings. Based on the measurement range of the instrument undergoing calibration, one of SiTarc calibration laboratory two pressure modules will be selected for the inspection. It is customary to exercise the instrument to its full capacity three times before beginning calibration. As with most calibrations, a standard with a known value or capacity is compared to the instrument being calibrated during the pressure calibration process. Most instruments undergo a 6 point pressure calibration, whereby the inspection occurs at every 20 percent of capacity. A higher accuracy pressure transducer or pressure gauge calibration will include 10 inspection points at every 10 percent of capacity.
Pressure calibration is just one of the many calibration services provided by our one-stop calibration laboratory.
With every pressure calibration we perform, our customers receive a Calibration Certificate with all the information they need, including:
- Instrument condition
- NPL traceability
- NABL accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025
- Calibration results
- Repairs and adjustments, if applicable
Working with reliable instruments is essential for efficiency, quality and safety. Let our lab keep all your instruments in top condition, including:
