Dead Weight Tester Calibration

Dead Weight Tester Gauge Calibration Services

In order to properly test pressure and calibrate pressure gages, both from our customers and from our collection of masters, Cross technicians often turn to dead weight testers. Based on holding constant pressure and comparing readings, these devices provide an easy, accurate way to calibrate our customers’ pressure gauges.

In addition to ensuring our own devices are performing accurately, our technicians also perform dead weight tester calibration for customers in need of a master standard within their own facility.

For years Cross has been the go-to precision measurement and gauge calibration company for countless businesses in the industrial world. We have the expertise, experience, and equipment to ensure consistent, accurate calibration services for our customers. And if you’re in need of a dead weight tester for pressure gauge calibration, we can provide that same outstanding service to you, too.

Precision DWT Calibration

The process of calibrating a dead weight tester is a complicated one, but on its most basic level it’s made up of a few steps. Primarily, this process includes a dimensional and mass inspection of the pistons and the weights used with it along with a verification of pressure.

From there, our techs determine the effective area of the piston and conduct a cross float verification to ensure complete accuracy. With this procedure at our disposal, Cross technicians are able to precisely test and calibrate most dead weight testers.

Cross calibration services are always performed using proven, NIST traceable calibration procedures. That means using standard and efficient methods for minimally-invasive calibration procedures with a quick turnaround time. Our technicians also make use of master standards to ensure that our customers are getting the most accurate calibrations possible. These include surface plates, angle blocks, sine bars, and many others. These tools allow us to perform precise and comprehensive measurements to ensure proper calibration at a minimum of four test points.

In addition to equipment calibration services, our team provides as-found as-left readings with a certificate of calibration. These certificates are always available 24/7 through GageSuite®, the Cross online calibration certificate tracking and storage system.

Two of the most important considerations when it comes to calibration for manufacturing and commercial applications are consistency and accuracy. So at Cross Precision Measurement, we strive to provide every one of our customers with the highest degree of accuracy in their calibrations. And we provide that service again and again.
