Compared to Deadweight Testers

A deadweight tester is specified as accurate to a tenth of a percent contingent on the tester beight properly levelled and hooked into the system and providing that:

  • The pressure is in the upper 90% of its range.

  • The weights are clean and unscarred.

  • The operator is experienced.

  • The climate is such that he is willing to take all the time necessary to get an accurate reading using as few weights as possible.

Convenience (A)

How can you compare the electronic gauge to a deadweight?

  1. Gently stack weights until piston reaches equilibrium against pressure.
  2. Add up pressure equivalents of weights to get gauge pressure.
  3. Carefully open ball valve.
  4. Attach hose to test port.
  5. Add absolute pressure correction factor.
  6. Close ball valve and remove pressure fitting.
  7. Store weights and take down tester assembly.
  8. Level tester precisely.
