Model 3613 Barometer Test Kit

Model 3613 Barometer Test Kit
Description:

The Model 3613 by King Nutronics Corporation is an easy to use barometer test kit that simulates the environment necessary for testing and calibrating aneroid barometers within a range of 20 to 37 in-Hg. The Barometer Test Kit can also be used to test surveying altimeters and other handheld mechanical or electronics aneroid-type pressure/vacuum measurement instruments within the specified operating range.

Model 3613 Barometer Test Kit
Features:
  • Rated operating range of 10 in-Hg vacuum to 5 psig.
  • Hermetically sealed transparent acrylic chamber for unobstructed view of instrument being tested.
  • Capable of pressure and vacuum testing using the included diaphragm pump.
  • Soft seat control valve for precise metering of pressure/vacuum levels.
  • Barbed hose fitting upstream of control valve enables monitoring of pressure/vacuum inside the chamber using an external reference standard.
  • Restricted orifice couplings prevent rapid changes in pressure/vacuum from damaging instruments under test.
  • Integral relief valve protects kit and instruments under test from accidental over-pressurization.
  • Adjustment tool with top-mounted knob permits convenient null indicator needle adjustments without opening the chamber or disturbing the test setup.
  • Adjustable feet allow chamber to be leveled for maximum accuracy.
  • Simple, easy-to-use design.

Product Details

The Model 3613 Barometer Test Kit can also be used to test surveying altimeters and other handheld mechanical or electronic aneroid-type pressure/vacuum measurement instruments within the specified operating range.

During use, the test chamber is evacuated or pressurized through a flexible hose connected to a diaphragm-type pressure/vacuum pump. The pump ports are equipped with restricted orifice couplings to prevent a rapid rise of pressure or vacuum inside the test chamber from damaging the unit under test. Pressure/vacuum inside the test chamber is metered by means of a precision soft seat control valve. A hose fitting upstream of the control valve permits the operator to monitor the pressure/vacuum inside the chamber using an external reference standard, while a relief valve prevents damage to the unit under test due to inadvertent overpressurization.

The test chamber is fitted with adjustable feet, which permit the leveling of the unit under test for maximum accuracy. An adjustment tool inside the chamber, coupled to a top-mounted knob outside, enables the operator to conveniently adjust the pointer on barometers equipped with null indicators, such as surveying barometers.
