Laboratory for static volumes of liquids

The laboratory performs calibrations of volume standards (capacity measurement of vessels) of various types: laboratory glassware (pycnometers, pipettes, flasks, etc.) and metal standards ( standard tanks, hourglasses for calibrating gasometric bells, etc.).

Calibration is performed by the gravimetric method in the measuring range from 10 mL to 200 L and by the volumetric method between 100 L and 2000 L. The best relative uncertainty is 0.005%.

Periodic inter-laboratory comparisons are organised for volume standards.
