This extension of the existing NORDTEST method NT MECH 009 describes the necessary alterations to NT MECH 009 in order to use it for pressure balances with gas as pressure transmitting medium. A method is included for the determination of the effective area of the piston-cylinder combination.

The method covers calibration in the range from 0 bar gauge pressure and upwards with no specific upper limit.
