Deadweight Tester

Deadweight Tester

± 0.015% of reading; to 15 000 psi / 1000 bar

  • The Type T tester is a dead weight tester that offers laboratory accuracy in an instrument designed to withstand an industrial environment or daily stresses of a manufacturing environment. Each tester features a re-entrant type measuring piston and cylinder assembly. This design reduces the rate of fluid leakage and increases float time, helping to maintain accuracy as test pressures increase.   

    • Accuracy to 0.015% of reading
    • Ranges to 15,000 psi
    • Available in psi, kg/cm², bar, and kPa
    • Small incremental weight sets available.

    A dual volume pumping feature allows a large volume of fluid to be added at low pressures to fill the system and increase pressure rapidly. Once filled, switch to a smaller volume to easy pumping and provide finer control at higher pressures. 

    • Overhung weight carrier reduces side thrust and friction
    • Over-pressure protection prevents piston damage
    • 3- leg design with bulls-eye leveling system
    • Single and dual column versions available to meet a wide variety of applications
