FAQ: Grease Meter

How do you calibrate the Grease Meter?

The Grease Meter can be calibrated for different grease types. To calibrate follow the steps below:

1. CALCULATE THE CORRECTION FACTOR

Correction factor = real quantity / shown quantity

Example:
The dispensed grease weight is 500 gram
The grease meter shows 485 gram

Correction factor = 500 / 485 = 1.03

2. CALCULATE THE CALIBRATION FACTOR

The new calibration factor = the old calibration factor x the correction factor

Example:
The old calibration factor is 700
The correction factor is calculated to 1.03
The new calibration factor = 700 x 1.03 = 721

3. CHANGE THE CALIBRATION FACTOR OF THE GREASE METER

To enter the menu press the power (left button) and light bulb (right button) buttons simultaneously. The display will show “TOTAL”. Press NEXT (right button). The display will show “CALIB”. Press ENTER (left button). The display will show the current calibration factor. The highlighted digit can be stepped up by pressing STEP (right button). To highlight the next digit press ENTER (left button). Continue to press STEP and ENTER to set the correct calibration factor. When the last digit has been accepted by pressing ENTER the display will show the calibrated amount. Press ENTER (left button) to accept and save the new calibration, or CANCEL (right button) to cancel the changers and return to the old calibration factor.

The calibration of the Grease Meter is also included in the instruction manual with illustrations. To view the Grease Meter instruction manual click here (a PDF file will be downloaded).
