New XP2i Absolute Ranges

Gas Distribution testing is one of the most common uses in North America of the popular XP2i digital test gauge from Ametek-Crystal Engineering.  Ametek-Crystal worked closely with numerous gas companies that have standardized on their equipment for low pressure measurement, and were instrumental in helping define the new calibration due alerts announced earlier this summer.  While gas distribution takes place all over the world, some areas use absolute pressure rather than gauge pressure, ruling out the Ametek-Crystal equipment...until now. We are pleased to announce that Ametek-Crystal is expanding their offering for absolute pressure…Read more

Pressure Safety Valve Testing with the XP2i

A pressure safety valve (PSV) protects vessels and piping systems from excessive internal pressure.  When a system reaches a predetermined pressure the PSV opens, a portion of the media discharges, and the pressure inside drops to a safe limit.  Once the pressure reaches the valve's reseating set point, the valve closes.  Periodic testing and adjustment of pressure safety valves is essential to maintain overall safety in Oil & Gas, Power Generation, Water/Wastewater, Aerospace/Aviation, Chemical/Plastics, Steel Manufacturing, and may other industries.  The most common test method for safety valves and relief valves is a…Read more
