Comparison with 20, 50 and 250 L test measures

Project Description

The aim of this project is to compare the results of the calibrations of a 20, a 50 and a 250 L proving tank. The comparison will allow the participating laboratories to test whether their results and uncertainties are in agreement with the results of the other participants and provide support to the CMC claim for this type of calibration. VNIIM provides the proving tanks that will be used for the comparison. The proving tanks are of the overflow type. The measurements to determine the repeatability of the proving tanks will be performed by VNIIM.

VNIIM is the pilot lab for the comparison. VSL is the coordinating lab.

Progress Report 2021-05-14

With help from IPQ the Draft A has been sent to the participants of the comparison on 14 May 2021. The participants are asked to send comments etc. before 15 June 2021.

Progress Report 2020-11-17

VNIIM is waiting for result sheets of three participants to start calculations and produce the Draft A. VSL has asked for the results during the TC-Flow meeting in November 2020. A new coordinator from VSL has been appointed for the project.
