How to calibrate pressure gauges – 20 things you should consider
Pressure gauges are very common instruments in the process industry. As with any instruments, pressure gauges need to be calibrated at regular intervals to ensure they are accurate.
Pressure switch calibration
Like many instruments, pressure switches need to be calibrated to ensure their accuracy and reliability. Switches are a bit more difficult to calibrate than transmitters. The wrong kind of calibration can cause many errors in the calibration result.
Pressure transmitter accuracy specifications – the small print
The advertised accuracy specification of modern pressure transmitters has become more and more accurate. Often the advertised accuracy specification includes only part of the truth. It includes only some of the accuracy components affecting the total accuracy that you can expect from the transmitter in practice in your application.
What is barometric pressure?
We regularly get asked, “what is barometric pressure?” So, we decided to create an article to explain barometric pressure and give some practical considerations.
In short, barometric pressure is the pressure caused by the weight of the air above us. Barometric pressure is sometimes also referred to as atmospheric pressure
Understanding pressure calibrator accuracy specifications
Comparing the accuracy specifications of pressure calibrators can be a challenging task because different manufacturers specify accuracy in different ways. This means that you can’t simply compare the numbers given in the specification – you need to understand how these numbers are calculated and what they mean in practice.
Pressure units and pressure unit conversion
There are a lot of different pressure units in use around the world and sometimes this can be very confusing and may cause dangerous misunderstandings.
In this blog post, we discuss the basics of different pressure units and pressure unit families.

What our customers say
The amount of equipment required to perform calibrations has dropped from an average of 5 to 1, and 80 standards have been retired due to the multifunction capabilities of the MC6. No matter who uses the system, the work is performed in the same manner in CMX, which creates a more reliable system and high data confidence.
As the calibration process is now fully automated, we can carry out pressure calibration in half an hour, rather than the 45 minutes to an hour that it took us previously.
