HPC40 Series calibrator

July 13, 2015

Full Name: HPC40 Series calibrator

 AMETEK Crystal Engineering

Status: Ready for multiple calibration roles throughout the plant

Debut: January 2015

Field Position: Process control applications including calibration of pressure gauges, transducers, transmitters, pressure switches and safety valves

Skill Set: Portability, accuracy, flexibility, replaces multiple devices

Performance Stats:
• World’s first mA loop calibrator that is fully temperature compensated from -20o to 50oC
• Measures pressure, current, voltage or temperature
• Suitable for pressures ranging from vacuum to 15,000 psi with accuracy of 0.035% of reading for all ranges

Regulatory Profile: Supports QSM operations associated with process accuracy and operational readiness

Coach’s Notes: “Because the HPC40 Series is the world’s first mA loop calibrator that is fully temperature compensated from -20o to 50oC, it can deliver the same accuracy whether measuring pressure, current, voltage or temperature. The HPC40 can typically replace several gauges or calibrators and offers a full-color display pared with a new user interface that offers a shallow menu structure allowing tasks to be performed quickly and intuitively.."

Scout’s Notes: "The HPC40 Series can be used as an individual calibrator or combined with AMETEK pressure generating products into a complete ready-to-use calibration system well suited for safety and quality assurance operations in laboratory, chemical processing, water treatment, pharmaceutical processing and similar production environments."
