Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A NON-FLOODING PORTABLE PRESSURE CALIBRATOR (PPC) THAT IS IMPERVIOUS TO OPERATOR ERROR, PREVENTS CONTAMINATION IN THE LIQUID SYSTEMS IN WHICH THE TEST DEVICE IS LOCATED AND IS EASY TO OPERATE. THE FLOODING INHIBITING TECHNIQUE OR DEVICE SHALL BE SUITABLE FOR LOCATION IN THE BODY OF NEWLY MANUFACTURED UNITS OR RETROFITTED TO EXISTING PORTABLE PRESSURE CALIBRATORS. IT MUST BE SMALL IN SIZE FOR EASE IN TRANSPORTABILITY, AND BE COST EFFECTIVE. THE EFFORT WILL INCLUDE THE STUDY OF THE CAUSE OF FLOODING AND THE TYPE OF MATERIALS AND DEVICES WHICH MAY BE USED AS A SOLUTION TO THE FLOODING PROBLEM. A NON-FLOODING AND NON-CONTAMINATING LIQUID TRAP WILL BE INVESTIGATED AND TESTED. AN INVESTIGATION WILL ALSO BE CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE IF A SUBSTANCE IS AVAILABLE TO BE USED AS A MOLECULAR SIEVE LIQUID CUT-OFF DEVICE. COST, RISK FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH FLOODING AND CONTAMINATION WILL BE STUDIED, AND THE EXTENT OF POTENTIAL CONTAMINATION TO LIQUID SYSTEMS USING EXISTING METHODS, WILL BE ANALYZED.
