  • Key comparison CCM.FF-K4

MEASURAND: Volume
NOMINAL VALUE: 20 L
THREE TRANSFER STANDARDS

For each of the transfer standards, the key comparison reference value, xR, is computed either as the median or as the weighted mean of the results. Its expanded uncertainty UR is approximately given at a 95% level of confidence.
SP is excluded from the analysis for the transfer standard TS 710-04.
The details are explained in Appendix C of the CCM.FF-K4 Final Report.

For each transfer standard, a first degree of equivalence for laboratory i with respect to the key comparison reference value is calculated as a pair of terms, both expressed in relative value:
Di TS= (xi - xR)/xR and its expanded uncertainty Ui TS at approximately a 95% level of confidence.
The degree of equivalence of laboratory i participating in this key comparison for the
20 L measurements is then given by a pair of terms, both expressed in relative value:
Di and its expanded uncertainty Ui at a ~95 % level of confidence, determined as the arithmetic average of the degrees of equivalence obtained for each individual transfer standard.

The degree of equivalence between two laboratories i and j is given by a pair of terms, both expressed in relative value:
Dij = Di - Dj and its expanded uncertainty Uij at approximately a 95% level of confidence.
  • Linking EURAMET.M.FF-K4.b to CCM.FF-K4

The linking process is described in section 7 of the EURAMET.M.FF-K4.b Final Report. The Matrix of equivalence obtained at 20 L in CCM.FF-K4 is thus extended to EURAMET.M.FF-K4.b participants.
Note: The Dij values given in the Annex 2 of the EURAMET.M.FF-K4.b Final Report correspond to -Dij values shown in the Matrix of equivalence.

  • Linking SIM.M.FF-K4 to CCM.FF-K4

The regional comparison reference value is first determined as the median of the SIM results for transfer standard TS 710-05, as described in section 8 of the SIM.M.FF-K4 Final Report.
Then the linking process uses common participation of CENAM, NIST and INMETRO in both key comparisons, as described in section 9 of the same Report.
Pair-wise degrees of equivalence involving CCM.FF-K4 and SIM.M.FF-K4 are given on page 16 of the SIM.M.FF-K4 Final Report.

  • Linking APMP.M.FF-K4 to CCM.FF-K4

The linking process uses common participation of NMIA and CENAM in both key comparisons, as described in section 7 of the APMP.M.FF-K4 Final Report.
Pair-wise degrees of equivalence involving APMP.M.FF-K4 participants are given on page 17 of the APMP.M.FF-K4 Final Report.

CCM.FF-K4, EUROMET.M.FF-K4, and APMP.M.FF-K4

  • Key comparison CCM.FF-K4

MEASURAND: Volume
NOMINAL VALUE: 100 mL
TRANSFER STANDARD: TS 03.04.03

The key comparison reference value, xR, is computed as the median of the results. Its expanded uncertainty UR is approximately given at a 95% level of confidence. The details are explained in Appendix C of the CCM.FF-K4 Final Report.
xR = 99.8942 mL and UR = 0.0012 mL

The degree of equivalence of laboratory i with respect to the key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms, both expressed in relative value:
Di = (xi - xR)/xR and its expanded uncertainty Ui at approximately a 95% level of confidence.

The degree of equivalence between two laboratories i and j is given by a pair of terms, both expressed in relative value:
Dij = Di - Dj and its expanded uncertainty Uij at approximately a 95% level of confidence.
  • Key comparison EUROMET.M.FF-K4

MEASURAND: Volume
NOMINAL VALUE: 100 mL

The EUROMET reference value, xR-EUR, and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), UR-EUR, are obtained from the weighted average of the EUROMET participants' results that are published here.
xR-EUR = 100.0914 mL and UR-EUR = 0.0006 mL.

The degree of equivalence of laboratory i participant in EUROMET.M.FF-K4 with respect to the EUROMET reference value is given by a pair of terms, both expressed in mL:
Di-EUR = (xi-EUR - xR-EUR) and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), Ui-EUR, computed as Ui-EUR = 2[ui-EUR2 - (UR-EUR/2)2]1/2.

The degree of equivalence between two laboratories i and j is given by a pair of terms, both expressed in mL: Dij = (Di-EUR - Dj-EUR) and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), Uij, expressed as Uij = 2(ui-EUR2 + uj-EUR2)1/2.
  • Linking EUROMET.M.FF-K4 to CCM.FF-K4

The EUROMET.M.FF-K4 results are linked to those obtained at 100 mL in CCM.FF-K4 with the Transfer standard TS 03.04.03.
The technical protocols and transfer standards of both comparisons are very similar, and INRIM and SP participated in both exercises with comparable performance.
The degrees of equivalence relative to the EUROMET reference value are thus transferred to the key comparison reference value determined in CCM.FF-K4 with slight changes. The resulting values of Di, Ui, Dij, and Uij are listed in Annexes 3, 4, and 5 of the EUROMET.M.FF-K4 Final Report.

The matrix of equivalence obtained at 100 mL in CCM.FF-K4 with the Transfer standard TS 03.04.03 is thus extended to EUROMET.M.FF-K4 participants (after conversion to relative values).

  • Linking APMP.M.FF-K4 to CCM.FF-K4

The linking process uses common participation of NMIA and CENAM in both key comparisons, as described in section 7 of the APMP.M.FF-K4 Final Report.
Pair-wise degrees of equivalence involving APMP.M.FF-K4 participants are given on page 18 of the APMP.M.FF-K4 Final Report.

  • Key comparison SIM.M.FF-K4

During the comparison, three transfer standards were used, but one of the pycnometers (serial 03.04.15) suffered an irreversible damage; this occurred after INDECOPI tests. Therefore, pycnometer 03.01.15 was tested by CENAM, BSJ, LACOMET, CENAMEP AIP and INDECOPI. This transfer standard was then replaced by pycnometer 03.01.17, which was measured by CENAM, IBMETRO, LATU, INTI and INMETRO.

Degrees of equivalence are computed using results from pycnometer 03.04.04, as it is the only artefact measured by all participants. Only results obtained with this transfer standard are reported here.
