Fluke Corporation have announced the new Fluke 719 Electric Pressure Calibrators. These pressure calibrators are lightweight devices with a built-in electric pressure pump, which helps to calibrate and test pressure devices with one hand.
Process technicians, plant maintenance technicians and instrument technicians who do pressure calibration work often use manual pumps to pressurise transmitters and gauges, which requires the use of two hands, one to pump and one to hold the pressure calibrator.
With its built-in, battery powered pump controlled by a thumb button, the Fluke 719 Electric Pressure Calibrator is convenient, faster and easier to use. The electric pump can be programmed to set target pressures or limit pressure to eliminate over pressurisation.
It is designed to perform 5,000 pump cycles between rebuilds and its unique cleanout port makes it easier to service without sending it out for repair. The cleanout port minimises pump failures caused by accidental exposure to contaminating fluids.
The Fluke 719 Electric Pressure Calibrator weighs 992 grams and operates on two 9 V alkaline batteries. Its ergonomic design is based on input from users and thoroughly field-tested.
Precision measurement features of the Fluke 719 pressure calibrator are best-in-class with pressure measurement uncertainty of 0.025 %. The device can measure and source mA with 0.015 % accuracy, simultaneously measure pressure and source mA to test valves and I/Ps and simulate mA signals to troubleshoot 4 to 20mA control loops.
The Fluke 719 Electric Pressure Calibrator models include:
- The Fluke 719 30G, with a pressure range of -12 psi to 30 psi (-850 mbar to 2 bar)
- The Fluke 719 100G, with a range of -12 psi to 100 psi (-850 mbar to 7 bar)
