Title: Pressure sensor evaluation : EA North West region 1997-2000 contract
Author: Environment Agency North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
Following the formation of the National Rivers Authority and subsequently the Environment Agency, it has always been recognised that there is a variety of differing standards for instrument procurement, installation and operation. In the majority of cases a certain amount of harmonisation would be possible between the different types of system in use, and others not being compliant, encouraged to meet the common standard. This has been the case for pressure sensors, and in 1996, a project was agreed to take into account the requirements of all users nationally, and agree a National Specification with a view to appoint a National Supplier. The objectives of this particular project are: to identify pressure sensor manufacturers compliant with the Nationally agreed specification; allow us to take full advantage of cost savings by avoiding the current, fragmented procurement approach; have confidence in measurements; encourage a move towards National standardisation; meet the National Environment Agency needs for water level measurement. The objectives of this particular report are: present all the results gathered from performance testing; show compliance with the Nationally agreed specification.
