Best pressure measurement

  1. Aug 5, 2011 #1
    I wondered how you can measure (static) pressure, with an as high as possible accuracy. Could you share your experience about which sensor and setup you allready used?

    I would like to measure the static pressure before and after a fan with an accuracy of 10[Pa]. Do you think this is possible?

    Do you mean 1 part in 10,000 of atmospheric pressure? Why the precision?

    If you are trying to measure the DP across the fan you might manage it with an inclined manometer.

    Yes I mean 1/10000 of atmospheric pressure, the accuracy is needed to determine the flow from a fan curve.
