DEAD WEIGHT CALIBRATOR
The dead weight calibrator equipment consists of:
The F1-11 Dead Weight Calibrator accessory comprises a precision ground piston andcylinder.
Weights may be added to the piston so that a number of predetermined pressures may beset up within the cylinder.
The cylinder is mounted on a baseboard which is supported on levelling screws andfitted with a spirit level.
The gauge under test is linked to the cylinder connection by a flexible tube.
Leakage of water past the piston is taken to waste through connection to a secondflexible tube. This tube is connected to a tapping which is drilled into the cylinder and isopposite an annular recess in the cylinder.
