Pressure Gauges and Calibration, Part 2

SKU: AOIMP20CENDuration: 60 Minutes

To properly calibrate rotary-geared pressure gauges, instrument technicians must have an understanding of pressure elements and adjustable pointer mechanisms; calibration standards, comparison graphs, and basic calibration procedures; and the differences in calibration procedures that are dictated by specific types of gauges. In addition to being able to perform calibrations on various types of pressure gauges, instrument technicians must also know how to compensate gauges for static pressures and to select devices that protect pressure gauges and thereby increase their service time.
