High Pressure & Force Metrology and Consultancy

High pressure metrology services

For over 30 years, H.P.F.M. has been an experienced partner and consultant in High Pressure and Force Metrology. We deliver world class metrology services in calibration, validation, maintenance, repair, engineering & sales. We do this for all industrial applications on a global level! Our services enable them to safely produce high quality products and save costs.

As one of the very few labs in the world, and the only one in the entire European Continent, we perform primary standard high pressure calibrations up to 1,6 GPa (IPPS standard).
H.P.F.M. B.V. was also the first company who ommercialise the Acoustic Pulse Reflectometry technology!

We closely work together with international manufacturers, universities, end-users and collaborate with the international development team managed by the German National Metrology laboratory (PTB) , and supported by the European Metrology Program of Euramet.

Static high pressure calibration

High pressure, up to 1.6 GPa is not only an unknown field, and is does take a lot of experiences and skills in order to handle this entire process.

A 16000 KG/CM2 International pressure standaard

Due to fast developments within different industries, the demand for high pressure calibration up to 1.6 GPa is vastly growing. Only a few suppliers in the world can meet these demands but none to a primary standard.

Metrology HIGH PRESSURE:

The always needed traceably and measuring specialism, in order to back up “your customer needs” and executed by an independent company. Our International Primary Pressure Standard (IPPS) is based (like all pressure balances on the globe) by the scientific and metrology related equation P=F/A. All specifications are available upon request, So the centre of gravity, the coventional mass (F=M) and the area of the piston (A) including the CMC’s, and also including all additional other specifications.

Calibration HIGH PRESSURE:

We do operate independently, in the quantity pressure (P) Our specialism, in order to back up “your highly needed customer demands” Several Pressure Standards are available in order to calibrate your instruments. 

We are also able to calibrate your instruments against a 1.6 GPa Secondary Pressure Standard, but also against our 1.6 GPa Primary Pressure Standard who is in the research status now. The final use of the HPFM 1.6 GPa pressure range as an International Primary Pressure Standard will be obtain at the end of 2017. So 100% traceability at the full pressure range.

Force calibration

H.P.F.M. B.V., are using deadweight equipment, in order to calibrate your full line of force related instruments. Including local Calibration services with secondary force Standards at the customers site.

Everything you need to know

Metrology tools

The H.P.F.M.  B.V. (definition) and our dead weight tester apparatus uses known traceable weights to apply pressure to a fluid for checking the accuracy of readings from a pressure gauge. A dead weight tester (DWT) is a calibration standard method that uses a piston cylinder on which a load is placed to make an equilibrium with an applied pressure underneath the piston.

Deadweight testers are so called primary standards which means that the pressure measured by a deadweight tester is defined through other quantities:

  • Length
  • Mass
  • Time

Typically deadweight testers are used in calibration laboratories to calibrate pressure transfer standards like electronic pressure measuring devices.
