Pressure and flow calibration

Gas Flow Calibration Using molbloc/molbox™

A four-day practical training course in the operation and maintenance of a Fluke Calibration molbloc/molbox system. The course’s central objective is to assure optimum system use. Course enrollment is typically limited to eight participants per class. This course is conducted at the Fluke Calibration facility in Phoenix, AZ, but can also be arranged at remote locations.

Course No. TRN-FLW-BAS.

Setting Up and Using COMPASS® for Pressure Software

A four-day comprehensive course on the setup and operation of COMPASS for Pressure Calibration Management Software. The course starts with an overview of COMPASS for Pressure objectives, general principles and structure. Attendees are then led through various aspects of COMPASS setup and operation from creating and running simple tests to the use of advanced devices under test, advanced tests and macros. Actual, real time examples are run and attendees follow along on their own hardware.

Course number TRN-COMPASS-PRS.

Advanced COMPASS® Macro Training

A two-day hands on course that covers macro implementation in COMPASS for Pressure and COMPASS for Flow. The course begins with an overview of COMPASS macros, and when and how to use them. The course then accelerates to include hands on VBScript coding and using the COMPASS object model to solve calibration problems. Live practical examples are used during the course. Attendees are encouraged to have a known calibration problem that will require a macro before the class begins.

Course number TRN-COMPASS-ADV.

Principles of Pressure Calibration

A five-day training course on the principles and practices of pressure calibration using digital pressure calibrators and piston gauges (pressure balances). The class is designed to focus on the practical considerations of pressure calibrations. The topics begin with the fundamental physics of pressure, moves through metrological terminology, discussion on calibration principles, piston gauge fundamentals, and a discussion on the day-to-day issues that can influence the quality of a calibration. A focal point of the class is hands-on calibration exercises.

Course number TRN-PRS-BAS.

Advanced Piston Gauge Metrology

A five-day course focusing on the theory, use and calibration of piston gauges and dead weight testers. Students will become familiar with all variables of the piston gauge pressure equation, operational characteristics of a piston gauge, the use of ancillary instruments that are used with a piston gauge, and how to maintain and calibrate the piston gauge metrological elements. Hands on exercises are stressed in this course such as calibrations of transfer standards including high precision quartz bourdon tube gauges, crossfloating dead weight testers and crossfloating to determine the effective area of piston-cylinders.
