The author reviews methods of calibrating low-differential (25–300 in. H2 O) D.P. transmitters at high (up to 3000 psig) static pressure. Various test methods are described along with discussion of their merits. Included are use of one or more deadweight testers (gas or liquid) and use of a high-pressure mercury manometer as a standard. Five D.P. transmitters of different construction are tested and their static span-shift performance reported.
