12th Round Robin Test for Multi-Capillary Pressure Drop Calibration Standards (2016/2017)

PTM Technical Report

December 2017

The CORESTA Physical Test Methods (PTM) Sub-Group organises a nominally annual cross-check that is open to calibration laboratories to compare their capability to calibrate standards used in physical test instrumentation. The testing provides a baseline of PD instrument performance across the industry, since this standard type is used in the PD instrumentation of each supplier. Each laboratory is also able to use the result set in internal and external audit assessments.

This report covers the results of the 12th pressure drop (PD) standards cross-check, conducted between May 2016 and July 2017. The results of this round robin test continue to conform to the historical performance of the method presented in ISO 6565:2011 "Tobacco and tobacco products – Draw resistance of cigarettes and pressure drop of filter rods – Standard conditions and measurement" and in subsequent tests.
