Spend More Time Calibrating and Less Time Looking for Leaks

MAY 2017

Ralston Quick-connect adapters can be assembled by hand - without a wrench or thread sealant and they seal up to 5000 psi / 350 bar.

The adapters use a pressure assisted sealing means the more pressure that is applied the better the seal.  Connect to pressure gauges which have male NPT, BSPP or Metric threads all without using a wrench or thread sealant.  Switch between gauges while calibrating or testing quickly and leak free.

How to keep contaminants out during pressure calibration

MARCH 2015

Sand, dirt, natural gas liquids (NGLs), water and other liquids can be a serious problem when calibrating pressure instruments on oil or natural gas pipelines. When liquid is mixed in with gas it can contaminate pressure instrumentation and introduce measurement errors. This is particularly a problem when measuring low pressures or differential pressures as any liquid can increase measurement uncertainty. To help reduce measurement uncertainty and to prevent solids and liquids from contaminating your pressure instruments Ralston Instruments has introduced two helpful products.
