Many engineering applications use the Bourdon gauge.TecQuipment’s Calibration of a Pressure Gauge experimentallows students to study Bourdon Tube theory. They seethe working mechanism, calibrate the gauge and comparetheoretical results to experiment results.The apparatus is a Bourdon gauge connected to a deadweight tester. The Bourdon gauge has a transparent dialthat allows students to see the working mechanism. Themechanism is a thin walled tube with an oval cross-section,bent into an arc. One end of the tube is held rigidly. Thisend admits pressure. The other end of the tube, connectedto a dial and pointer mechanism, is free to move. Whenthe pressure in the tube increases, it tries to straighten andso moves the pointer by an amount proportional to thepressure increase.To calibrate the gauge, students add weights to a platformon a dead weight tester. The weights put a known forceon to a piston. The piston has a known area, so studentscan calculate the pressure. A flexible tube containing water transfers the pressure on the piston to the Bourdon tube.Students add the weights in increments, recordingpressure readings from the gauge at each increment. Theythen remove the weights and record gauge readings. Byworking out theoretical results they can work out gaugeerror and discuss possible causes.
