Intensifier Dead-Weight Piston Gauge with Controlled-Clearance for Pressures to 1500 MN/m2

  • R. Wiśniewski


In all primary Standards the measurement of any physical quantity is referred directly to the Standard of length, mass and time. All primary Standards should be so simple in principle that systematic measurement errors can be either evaluated or eliminated. There are two commonly used primary Standards of pressure; the mercury column and the dead-weight piston gauge.
