Worldwide only China, India and Russia have primary pressure standards above 1 GPa. EUROPEAN PRIMARY STANDARDS ARE LIMITED BY 1 GPa.
Such situation had to be solved:
EMRP IND 01 "High pressure metrology for industrial applications".
- The project was funded by European Metrology research Programme.
- The project enabled cooperation of European high pressure metrology laboratories and companies.
- The duration of the project was from October 2011 to September 2014.
