Enables a range of practical investigations into pressure measurement techniques
Manometers and Bourdon gauges are fundamental pressure-measuring devices. They are intrinsic parts of more complex measuring instruments, such as pneumatic comparators and flow indicators. It is important therefore that students fully understand their operation, characteristics and principles of calibration.
- Provides practical investigations for pressure measurement using inclined and U-tube manometers, and Bourdon-type vacuum and pressure gauges
- Enables instant comparison of measurement methods
- Pressure and vacuum are accurately and conveniently controlled by fine adjustment of a syringe assembly
- Also includes separate Bourdon gauge with dead-weight calibration apparatus, and Bourdon tube mechanism clearly visible
- Fully self-contained, bench-top apparatus
- Suitable for group demonstrations and individual student experiments
TecQuipment’s Pressure Measurement Bench enables students to fully investigate and compare the operation and characteristics of inclined and U-tube manometers, and Bourdon-type vacuum and pressure gauges. It also includes a separate Bourdon gauge with dead-weight calibration apparatus, enabling clear observation of the Bourdon tube mechanism.
A range of investigations into common pressure measurement techniques, including:
- Comparison of pressure measurement by manometer and Bourdon gauge
- Calibration of a pressure gauge
- Determination of gauge errors as a function of true pressure
