Calibrating a flow meter for HPLC pumping systems is best left to the experts. Do not try it at home. But since you landed on this post, we’ll tell you how it is done by the experts.
Experts are required to calibrate flow meters for high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC ) pumping systems because it is an exacting exercise involving a high-precision measuring instrument. We’ll explain why in a bit.
But first, a brief introduction to flow meters in general. If you are familiar with flow meters you can skip to how they are calibrated for HPLC systems.
What do Flow Meters Do?
As the name implies, flow meters measure the rate of flow of a product, usually through a pipeline or processing line. Gasoline pump flow meters at your local filling station are another common example. Standards may apply to periodic certification by calibrating flow meters to confirm that … Read the rest
