Durable and reliable computerized cap torque analyzer

  • High accuracy. Calibrators in Mesa’s Defender Series are backed by Proven DryCal technology and have a reading uncertainty of less than 1%. 
  • Durability. All DryCal calibrators are field-proven and have provided IH professionals with reliable performance for decades. 
  • Real-time flow data. Calibrator flow data is captured in real-time with our DryCal Pro software, directly uploaded to a PC, and exported to a Microsoft environment. 
  • Convenient mail-in factory calibration. An annual NIST-traceable calibration by Mesa’s ISO-accredited facility provides a defensible audit trail and full refurbishment. 
  • Trusted accreditation. Mesa Labs is a fully accredited ISO-17025 facility with a 0.08% Scope of Accreditation for gas flow by NVLAP of NIST.

Product Options

All Defender series products offer single, continuous, and burst reading options. The series is highlighted as a calibration method in the OSHA Technical Manual. 

By connecting your computer to the Defenders RS-232 port, you’ll get real-time flow and data capture using DryCal Pro Software. Check out our product line: 

 

Defender 510 • Volumetric Primary Flow Standard 

The Defender 510 is the base model of the Defender series. This model is primarily used for 

  • Personal Sampling Pump Calibration 
  • Volumetric Flow Calibration 

 

Defender 520 • Enhanced Volumetric Primary Flow Standard 

  The Defender 520 is the intermediate model of the Defender Series. This model provides: 

  • Flow Calibration where you want to know Temperature/Pressure 
  • A more affordable option 

 

Defender 530+ • Standardized Primary Flow Standard 

  The Defender 530+ is the most enhanced model of the Defender Series. This model provides: 

  • Standardized (Mass Flow) Readings 
  • Ambient Air and Industrial Flow Standard Applications
