Pressure Gauges Maintenance and Calibration

Details :

This workshop is a practical three-day session dealing with all aspects of pressure gauge and transducer calibration. It is especially useful for staff involved in testing and calibration of pressure gauges by comparison against reference pressure gauges or deadweight testers.

Calibration is more than simply checking or adjusting an instrument. Calibration involves ensuring the gauge under test is working properly, ensuring the reference instrument has a traceable calibration, comparing the two instruments using an appropriate method, and calculating the measurement uncertainty.

This workshop teaches attendees an efficient method to calibrate pressure gauges that meets the technical, quality and legal aspects of calibration. A feature of the method is the straight forward way that the measurement uncertainty is calculated.

The presentations include many demonstrations and hands-on activities that will be of interest to new and experienced users. Attendees should be able to calibrate a pressure gauge, calculate the associated measurement uncertainty, as well as carry out regular in-service checks on reference equipment.

Engineers, technicians, and operators dealing with pressure gauges and periodic calibration. Well testing operators who deals with pressure reading and pressure gauges in daily bases will benefit from this course.
