A pressure calibrator is a pressure measuring device capable of calibrating the pressure readings measured by another less accurate device. Calibrators are usually expected to be at least four times more accurate than the devices they are measuring. They can be portable hand-held devices as well as larger laboratory or workshop-based models, ideal for technicians in a wide variety of process industries.
Pressure calibrators many features, specifications, and accuracies. Included in this range of calibrators are calibrators with automatic/manual pressure pumps and those with data recording facilities for multiple measurements on multiple devices. Some specialist units also offer current/voltage measurement and need to be linked up to complete systems and perform the tasks of a multi-function calibrator.
Pressure calibrators although they are designed to be several times more accurate than the devices they are testing can still report in-accurate readings if they are not regularly calibrated. The higher accuracy of pressure calibrators means calibration of these devices needs a superior gold standard piece of test equipment known as a deadweight tester.
Calibrationhouse has a modern deadweight tester capable of providing a range of pressure gauge calibration services, because of the accuracy and logistics involved this service takes place exclusively at our County Durham based laboratory.
