Intercomparison in gauge pressure range from -95 kPa to +100 kPa

Markku Rantanen, Sari Semenoja

Research output: Book/ReportReport


An intercomparison in the gauge pressure range from -95 kPa to +100 kPa was arranged in 2005 in Finland by the Centre for Metrology and Accreditation (MIKES). Five pressure calibration laboratories participated in the comparison but only three made measurements on both negative and positive gauge pressures.
The transfer standard was a Beamex MC5 multifunction calibrator equipped with an internal pressure measurement module INT1C for the gauge pressure range –105 kPa to + 104 kPa. The results from all the five laboratories were in a good agreement with the results of MIKES. Only one result at nominal pressure –95 kPa was slightly out of the uncertainty limits.
