Calibration Method


    Testing Machine:  The procedure is based on International Standard (ISO) 7500/1.   Brief Description of Calibration Method:   The unit under calibration (UUC) is subjected to specified force values which were applied on the force-proving instrument and readings are noted.   Torque Meter: ASTM Designation: D 3474-90   Brief Description of Calibration Method:   Torque values are obtained by means of vertically suspended dead weights acting at specific distances from the axis of rotation of the tester.
