AMETEK Sensors, Test and Calibration (STC) has introduced a new handheld pressure calibrator, the HPC50.

The new pressure calibrator is part of the company’s Crystal line of pressure products.

The calibrator offers deadweight test accuracy along with user-friendly features to deliver laboratory accuracy to an on-site, field usable instrument.

The HPC50 calibrates pressure from vacuum to 15,000 psi / 1000 bar with accuracy up to 0.035% of reading. The product is ideal for process control applications, such as verification or calibration of pressure gauges, transducers, transmitters, pressure, switches and safety valves.

The units are available in single and dual pressure models, and users can equip each with one or two new safe external modules:

  • APMi pressure modules provide flexibility to read up to four pressure inputs with a single device.
  •  ATMi temperature modules allow users to read pressure using the installed modules, while simultaneously reading both static and ambient temperatures. 

Common applications include maintenance and troubleshooting of gauges, switches, transmitters, transducers, valves, gas meters, flow computer, pumps, and filters. The HPC50 can also replace a deadweight tester.
