Pneumatic and Hydraulic Pressure Calibration

The Mensor Calibration Laboratory is fully equipped to calibrate any pressure measuring instrument up to 30,000 psi. The use of pneumatic media or hydraulic media in a calibration is determined by the customer's requirement and the full scale pressure of the instrument being tested.

  • Pneumatic Pressure Media are typically used for pressures below 6000 psi
  • Hydraulic Pressure Media can be used for pressures between 1500 psia and 30,000 psi

The Mensor Calibration lab will accommodate customer related request for calibration media but in general, instruments with full scale pressures above 6000 psi are calibrated with hydraulic media and those with full scale pressure below 6000 are calibrated with pneumatic media.

If a instrument is initially calibrated with pneumatic media then it is recommended that subsequent calibrations also use pneumatic media. In the same way,  instruments initially calibrated with hydraulic media should use Hydraulic media in  subsequent calibrations. The reason for staying with the same media for each calibration is that slight errors may be introduced when using different media for calibration.

In mensor's calibration lab hydraulic calibrations use Sebacate oil with a DI water interface to the device being tested. Pneumatic calibrations use clean dry Nitrogen.

Mensor's Lab is Accredited to ISO 17025 by A2LA.
