The essence of wear-out and life regarding durability of non-disposable weighing instruments is pointed out. The test objects, test items, test occasions and test sites for evaluating the durability of weighing instruments are analyzed.

Difference between the in-service inspections carried out by legal metrology institutes and by users are examined. The following items are compared for durability tests made on type evaluation, on initial verification and subsequent verification, and on in-service inspection carried out by legal metrology institutes or users: test occasions, test objects, test functions, test purposes, test proposers and executors, test sites and working conditions, the criteria of durability, and the documents in which the test results should be included.
Abstract: In order to calibrate energy loss of drop hammer impact testing machines, a portable speed measuring device using a photoelectric sensor to measure the impact speed was developed. The device is mainly composed of a grooved infrared photoelectric sensor, two fixed distance cylinders, a multifunctional pulse meter and a magnetic meter base. The measurement principle: when the hammer falls at a certain speed, it drives two cylinders with a fixed distance in between to go through the sensor one after the other. A multi-functional pulse meter reads the time interval between the two cylinders covering the sensor, and then the impact speed is calculated based on the distance and time interval between the cylinders. Based on the calibration parameters, a mathematical model was established and the measurement uncertainty was evaluated. For impact speeds not greater than 10 m/s, the maximum error of measurements is within ± 0.25%. The device can be used to measure the speed of transverse impacts, inclined impacts, and vertical impacts of packaging.
Abstract: A device for meauring torque rating of bottle cap torque-meters was developed. The device includes a special check lever, a force weight loading mechanism, and a horizontal to vertical loading mechanism. The torque rating was measured by multiplying the force value of the weight and the arm length of the check lever. Factors affecting measurement uncertainty were analyzed and the uncertainty in the measurement results of the torque rating was evaluated. The results showed that the performance of the device was stable and reliable. It can be used to calibrate bottle cap torque-meters of level 1 or below and small range special torque testers, providing traceability for their torque indication.
Abstract: According to the geometrical description of straightness error presented in the national standard GB/T 11336-2004, a new enveloping model of the minimum tolerance zone method for evaluating straightness in a plain and a principle for judging envelop points are proposed in this paper. Based on the principle, a highly efficient algorithm is proposed to search for the envelope points. The proposed algorithm is suitable for searching for the envelope points of a mass points set. A comparison with a traditional method shows that the proposed algorithm had good completeness and produced reliable results. By means of simulation, sets of a million points were calculated using the algorithm and the costs of the algorithm were recorded. The result showed that the time complexity of the algorithm was O(N). The enveloping model proposed in this paper is simple and accurate.

Abstract: According to the analysis of gas velocity in different sections of a pipeline, the velocity is related to the position of the section. Ultrasonic gas meters measure the cumulative volume by measuring the average velocity of the gas. Flow field disturbance affects the gas velocity distribution in the pipeline and the measurement accuracy. A gas meter is disturbed by two types of flow fields, namely velocity distribution distortion and vortex. This paper proposes a test method for two kinds of flow field disturbance, and focuses on the structure, installation and error algorithm of the disturbance generator. Taking the 1.5 grade G6 diaphragm gas meter as an example, a 0.5 stage sonic nozzle method gas flow standard device was used to test the influence of flow field disturbance under the flow rate of 10 m3 / h. The influence was less than 0.1%. Given the fact that diaphragm gas meters are not affected by flow field disturbance, the feasibility of the method and the accuracy of the algorithm were verified, providing an evaluation method for verifying the adaptability of ultrasonic gas meters to flow field disturbance. It can be used to obtain more complete and accurate test data of ultrasonic gas meters in design and optimization of flow channels, leading to better product quality. The test data of the G6 ultrasonic gas meter showed that it was easily affected by flow field disturbance. The change in the error caused by the disturbance on the inlet side at the flow rate of qmax was 0.30%, greater than the change of 0.11% on the outlet side, and the changes were related to the flow rate. This effect was insignificant at the flow rate of 0.2qmax. In the design of a product, the flow field should be optimized to reduce flow field disturbance.
Abstract: Because of their excellent mechanical properties, polyacrylonitrile(PAN)-based carbon fibers are widely used in aerospace, general industry, high-end sports goods, etc. High purification and densification of carbon fiber precursors is one of the key techniques for the preparation of high-performance carbon fibers. During the extraction and testing of the residual solvent in carbon fiber precursors, boiling water causes the decomposition of the residual solvent in the dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), which seriously affects the accurate quantification of the residual solvent in the fibers. A systematic study of accurate extraction and quantification of residual solvent dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) in carbon fiber precursors was carried out at the National Measurement and Testing Center for Carbon Fiber Industry. Water, ethanol, acetone, and cyclohexane were used as extraction agents. The effects of extraction agent types, fiber quality, extraction temperature and time, and measuring instruments on the accurate quantification were studied. The extraction conditions and quantitative testing methods were proposed to provide measurement and testing services for improved process control of the preparation of high-performance fibers.
Abstract: Gain compression is an item that should be measured specified in the calibration specification and verification regulation for spectrum analyzers. However, the calibration method and the verification method for measuring gain compression are not perfect. The definition of gain compression, common methods of measuring gain compression, and the shortcomings in the calibration method and the verification method are analyzed in this paper. An improved two-tone compression method for measuring gain compression is proposed. It was verified that the new method can measure the 1 dB gain compression point of spectrum analyzers correctly. The method can be used as a supplement to the exiting calibration method and verification method.
Abstract: As the precision of the spherical couple parts (i.e. the hemisphere and the ball bowl) of a hemisphere dynamic pressure motor is very high, their ball diameter and sphericity measurement during fabricating process have to rely on high precision three-dimensional and roundness measuring instruments. Therefore the measuring process is tedious, complicated, time-consuming, and inefficient. For a long time, it has been one of the bottlenecks that reduce efficiency in the manufacture of hemisphere dynamic pressure motors. In this paper, a ball diameter measuring instrument developed on the basis of the principal of optical interference is introduced. Its application showed that it featured simple operation, high precision, and visible results. It can be used for in-situ measurement while the parts are under fabrication, which greatly improves the measurement efficiency. It has great potential for increasing the efficiency of manufacture of hemisphere dynamic pressure motors and other spherical parts as well.
Abstract: The microwave digest technique combined with inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) was used for the determination of arsenic and cadmium in powdered rice. The measurement uncertainty was evaluated by establishing a mathematical model. The measurement results of arsenic and cadmium in powdered rice were (0.182±0.012) mg/kg and (0.262±0.016) mg/kg, respectively, with the coverage probability of 95%. The major uncertainty components were from standard curve fitting and test solution measurement. The research method can be used for measurement of harmful elements in powdered rice by ICP-MS.
