The Ametek STC Crystal nVision reference recorder from Cameron Instruments is said to be an easy-to-use digital recorder used to both read and document hydrostatic pressure tests, offering precise, reliable information to ensure safety.

The unit’s rugged design makes it suitable for the rough environments in which many pipelines are located, the company says.

It is temperature compensated, so the accuracy of the recorder will not be degraded if it’s used between -20° to 50°C. In addition to pressure, the instrument can also record temperature.

The combination of pressure and temperature on the same graph provides useful information for the post-analysis of the test. For users looking to record the data collected from their testing, the reference recorder can store up to 1 million data points (as fast as 10 readings per second).

Free software downloads the information to a spreadsheet for ready storage and accessibility. The software also includes an option to export to a tamper-proof, signed pdf file.
