I saw this topic on a forum on Facebook and noticed no one said they could. I was just wondering if someone could calibrate this and if so how? What standards do you use?

I finally gave up and left all the pmel related Facebook groups. They typically turn into whine fests or "what's playing on little Jimmy's ipod today" type posts (no offense meant to anyone named Jimmy, coulda used Johnny or Jodie or Bob or [insert name here]).

We can do 16,000 on the DWT.  Able to do 150,000 dynamic pressure, but that's apples and oranges. 

No way in hell would I be anywhere near that pneumatic system at WIKA.

We can calibrate to 72,000 PSI with oil using DHI 50316 to 20 PSI.
