Dynamic Pressure Calibration Systems

Overview and Selection Guide

The Modal Shop's Dynamic Pressure Calibration System offerings are based on two product lines with a rich heritage of calibration experience. The pressure actuators and measurement equipment have been in use for decades at PCB Piezotronics, while the data acquisition and automation software is based on The Modal Shop’s 9155 Series of vibration sensor calibration workstations. Each System, from Low Pressure to Ultra High Pressure, merge these two product lines to form standalone dynamic pressure calibration systems with mature measurement capabilities. The Modal Shop also offers a unique line of shock tube products for characterizing dynamic pressure sensors.

In addition, all Dynamic Pressure Systems are offered as modular options to expand the 9155D Calibration System to include dynamic pressure.

K9901C Pressure Calibration System

Instrumented Shock Tube - K9901C

The K9901C uniquely characterizes pressure sensors using shock waves created by diaphragm rupture. The reflected and incident pressures are measured, as well as the delay time and ambient weather conditions. Spectral content is also recorded for resonant frequency investigations. Model 9901C is also available for users that have or develop their own data acquisition hardware and software.

  • Pressure Levels - from 10 psi to over 1,000 psi (20 kPa/0.2 bar to over 6.9 MPa/69 bar)
  • Helium or compressed air media
  • High frequency content allows determination of sensor resonant frequency
