Intercomparison in gauge pressure 0-25 MPa

Markku Rantanen, Sari Saxholm

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    An inter-laboratory comparison in the gauge pressure range from 0 MPa to 25 MPa was arranged in 2010 by the Centre for Metrology and Accreditation (MIKES). Nine accredited pressure calibration laboratories participated in the comparison, four from Finland and five from other European countries.

    The transfer standard was a Beamex MC5 multifunction calibrator equipped with an external pressure transducer EXT250, operating on oil. The instrument was provided for the comparison by the manufacturer Beamex Oy Ab, Pietarsaari, Finland.

    The results from all laboratories were in a good agreement with the results of MIKES within the limits of the claimed uncertainties. One laboratory first sent slightly deviating results, and was asked to check their results. The new measurements after corrective actions gave a good agreement.
