This Nordtest method describes the calibration of pressure balances by comparison with a calibrated pressure balance.

Methods are included for

  • mass determination of the piston and the weights of the pressure balance.
  • determination of the effective area of the piston-cylinder assembly.

The method covers the calibration in the range 4-2000 bar gauge pressure.
