The calibration standard against which all others are measured. Throughout the world in industry and standards laboratories, the Morehouse Proving Ring is recognized for it's lasting reputation of unquestionable accuracy in the measurement of mechanical forces. For this reason, it is accepted as a prominent standard for the calibration of testing machines, torque measuring dynamometers, thrust standards, electronic and hydraulic load cells, and many other force measuring devices and systems.
Morehouse Proving Rings
The calibration standard against which all others are measured is available in both analog and digital versions. Digital versions have proven to be a more accurate, easier to use, and are the preferred option. Proving Rings are often the choice for those wanting stability.
Proving Rings are known for:
Stability - When
maintained, Proving Rings have little to zero drift.
Longevity - Some Proving Rings built in the 1930's are still in use today.
Accuracy - Proving Rings often maintain uncertainties of 0.0125 - 0.025 % of full scale.
Reliability - There's a reason a Proving Ring is on the International Space Station. They do not fail.
Proving Rings are available in two different models:
Series 1000 Model
This is the most accurate proving ring available
ISO Class 00 @ 10 % of range ASTM E74 lower limit factor is better than 0.0125 % of full scale
There are roughly 20,000 counts of resolution
There are roughly 40,000 counts of resolution
Available in capacities from 2,000 lbf or equivalent up to 1,000,000 lbf or equivalent
Series 200 Model
This is model is best suited for to calibrate tensile machines in accordance with ASTM E4 and ISO 7500
ASTM E74 lower limit factor is better than 0.0250 % of full scale; ISO Class 0.5 at 10 % of range
Available in capacities from 300 lbf or equivalent up to 1,000,000 lbf or equivalent
Note: Digital Proving Rings or conversions are not available for capacities under 5,000 lbf.
