Pressure Measurement Bench

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.

Key features

  • 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
