The Arrows Formula One motor racing team has taken delivery of a bar calibration kit to test pressure release valves on the water cooling system of their F1 car. The kit was used by the team’s cars competing in the Brazilian Grand Prix on cars driven by Pedro del la Rosa and Toranosuke Tagaki.
The team is using a TP1-DK 20 hand held bar calibration kit from SIPressure Instruments which was chosen to provide accurate readings in the shortest possible time. In Formula One racing the margin between winning and losing can be extremely small – even fractions of seconds saved in taking pressure readings can make the difference. The company are currently in the process of exploring other solutions for the Arrows team.
