Description

Description of model LR-Cal LDW-HK:

Proven primary pressure standard
Deadweight Tester / Pressure Balances are the most accurate instrument available on the market for the calibration of electronic or mechanical pressure measuring instruments. The direct measurement of the pressure (p = F / A), as well as the use of high-quality materials enable a very small measurement uncertainty, in conjunction with an excellent long-term stability of 5 years (recommended in accordance with German Calibration Service DKD/DAkkS).
The deadweight tester / pressure balance has therefore been used for years in factory and calibration laboratories in national institutes, research laboratories and in industry.

Stand-alone operation
Due to its integrated pressure generation and the pure mechanical measuring principle, the model LR-Cal LDW-HK is ideal for on-site use for maintenance and service.

Basic principle
Pressure is defined as the quotient of force and area. The core component of the model LR-Cal LDW-HK is therefore a very pecisely manufatured piston-cylinder-system, which is loaded with masses in order to generate the individual test points.
The masses applied are proportional to the target pressure and this is achieved through optimally graduated weights. As standard, these masses are manufactured to the standard gravity (9.80665 m/s²), though the can be manufactured to a specific location (gravity) and also DKD-/DAkkS-calibrated.

Bedienschema der LR-Cal LDW-HK DruckwaageEasy operation
The integrated dual-area spindle pump enables rapid filling of the test system and smooth pressure generation up to 1,200 bar. At the same time, the precise adjustable spindle pump also serves for fine pressure adjustment. A control schematic for pressure generation on the instrument base facilitates quick and easy operation.

As soon as the measuring system reaches equilibrium, there is a balance of forces between the pressure and the mass load applied. The excellent quality of the system ensures that this pressure remains stable over several minutes, so that the pressure value for comparative measurements can be read without any problems, or also so that more complex adjustments can be carried out on the item under test.

Compact instrument design
The LR-Cal LDW-HK is also particularly notable for its compact dimensions, which are not altered during operation, since the spindle runs within the pump body.
With its compact dimensions, the exceptionally robust ABS plastic housing and the low weight associated with these, the LR-Cal LDW-HK is also particularly suited to on-site applications.

Piston-cylinder system

The piston-cylinder system of model LR-Cal LDW-HK

The piston and cylinder of model LR-Cal LDW-HK Deadweight Tester / Pressure Balance are manufactured from tungsten carbide.
This pairing of materials, in comparison to other materials, has very low pressure and temperature coefficients of expansion, which results in a very good linearity for the cross-sectional area and a very high accuracy.

Piston and cylinder are very well protected, against contact, impacts or contamination from outside, in a solid stainless-steel housing. At the same time, overpressure protection is integrated, which prevents the piston from being forced out vertically and avoids damage to the piston-cylinder system in the event of mass removal under pressure.

The masses are stacked on an overhang (bell jar), which sits on the piston shaft. The construction of the overhang (bell jar) provides a very low centre of gravity for the stacked weights, which minimises both the side thrust on the piston-cylinder system and the friction. For smaller starting pressures, the masses can also be stacked directly onto the piston shaft, without using the overhang (bell jar).

The overall design of the piston-cylinder unit and the very precise manufacturing of both the piston and cylinder, ensures excellent operating characteristics with long free-rotation time and low sink rates.
Thus a high long-germ stability is ensured. Therefore the recommended recalibration interval is 5 years depending on the conditions of usage.

Set of masses

Set of masses for model LR-Cal LDW-HK

The following tables show, for the respective measuring range, the number of masses within a set of masses, with their resulting nominal pressures.

Should you not operate the instrument under reference conditions (ambient temperature 20°C, air pressure 1,013 mbar, relative humidity 40%), the relevant corrections must be made.

The masses are manufactured, as standard, to the standard gravity (9.80665 m/s²) although they can be adjusted for any particular location.

1) Theoretical starting value; corresponds to the pressure value generated by the piston or the piston and its make-up weights (bei their own weight). To optimise the operating characteristics more weights should be loaded.

2) The smallest pressure change value that can be achieved based on the standard weight set. To reduce this, a set of trim masses is also available.

3) The accuracy from 10% of the measuring range is based on the measured value. In the lower range, a fixed error based on 10% of the range applies.

4) Measuring uncertainty assuming reference conditions (ambient temperature 20°C, air pressure 1,013 mbar, relative humidity 40%). Corrections mus be made if required.
