Meets or exceeds the following methods/laws/requirements:
US EPA Method 5:
- Section 220.127.116.11 (Selection of Critical Orifices)
- Section 16.2.2 (Critical Orifice Calibration)
Critical Orifice is used to calibrate the dry gas meter (DGM) of various metering consoles.
This calibration instrument is approved by the US EPA as calibration standard for calibrating a dry gas meter, in place of the wet test meter stated in Section 16.1 of the US EPA Method 5, provided that the critical orifices are selected, calibrated, and used in accordance with the instructions included in Section 16.2.1 of the US EPA Method 5.

Calibration of Critical Orifice
This critical orifice does not come calibrated. For factory calibration before your first use, please add PN-773 --- Calibration of Critical Orifice into your cart before checking out (for online/website order) or please contact our Regional Sales Office (for offline order).
A calibration certificate will be issued:
- The critical orifices are calibrated according to US EPA Method 5 (US CFR Title 40, Part 60, Appendix A, Test Method 5) Section 16.2.2, using a dry gas meter calibrated according to US EPA Method 5, Section 10.3, and other reference instruments with calibrations traceable to the International System of Units (SI).
Aer Sampling recommends calibrating critical orifices at least once a year.
Aer Sampling's critical orifices shall only be calibrated in vacuum mode (i.e., critical orifice be upstream of the vacuum pump). Results from calibration in non-vacuum modes (i.e., critical orifice is downstream of the pump; pump is pushing gas into the critical orifice) are not comparable. Critical orifice must reach critical conditions to be usable.
Manufacturing Warranty and Technical Support
