## Pressure Gauge Calibration Using Deadweight Tester

Pressure Gauges are first cleaned and then checked to ensure that they are not

damaged

STEPS:

• 1. Set up the equipments needed for calibration

note: know first the maximum capacity of the dead weight tester whether it can

acommodate the range of the gauge calibrated.

• 2. Prepare the manual and date sheet that will be used for details of the instruments to be

calibrated.

Some information needed for calibration to be input to data sheet:

. equipment name/id no

.ambient temperature

. Relative humidity

.date of calibration

.date of next calibration

• 3. Wrap the gauge fitting of teflon tape in clockwise direction

4.place the gauge to be tested to the manifold assembly ( with gauge fitting match to the

manifold joint) use correct size of wrench and make sure there is no leak.

• 5. if the gauge has to be tested has for example 0 to 100 psi range, use the 5 points scale

0% -low pressure ( zero reading)

.100% high pressure

here are the i.e of 5 points calibration using zero to 100

• 6. Check the pointer intial reading 0 psi. If not, zero adjustment shall be made by

• 7. Place weights on the cylinder corresponding to each point scale of the pressure gauge.

increase the actuating pressure equivalent to 0%, 25%,50%,75% and 100% of the

assigned range

• 8. Tightly close the release valve by turning clockwise.

9.Pump gently until it weights floats to an ideal level

• 10. Rotate weights clockwise very gently and continuously while pumping.

11.If cylinder base exceeds above or below the ideal level,, rotate fine pressure

• 12. record the pointer indication values for each point scale.

.upscale ( o%,25%,50%,75% and 100%)

.downscale ( 100%,75%,50%25% and 0%)

this is the "as-found data".

• 13. if the "as found" data exceeds the required accuracy, calibration should be done. a

span = maximum range-minimum range

• 14. Repeat the procedure until the readings for each point scale is within the specified

limits of accuracy.

• 15. Record the readings for each point scale and this is the as left date

• 16. When done, release the built system pressure by opening the release valve

17.put the calibrator sticker.

• 18. Make the calibration certificate with authorize signatures.

• 19. Housekeeping
