The radius of the vial is 1000 mm, giving a sensitivity of 2 mm/m.
Tolerance in normal position is ±0.25 mm/m, upside down ±0.75 mm/m.
The liquid in the vial is a low viscosity coloured oil mixture that gives the bubble optimal freedom of movement.
Highly resistant to ultraviolet light and temperature fluctuations.
The anti-static properties of the liquid means that the bubble is not affected by static electricity.
What is a spirit level's sensitivity?
The sensitivity of the vial determines how quickly the bubble moves when one end of the spirit level is lifted. The higher the sensitivity the more precise the spirit level is. This means that the bubble of a more precise spirit level reacts more when one end of the spirit level is lifted. Learn more.
What is a spirit level's tolerance?
Manufacturing tolerance is the sum of all possible minor and microscopically small errors during production. Tolerance is thus the divergence from sensitivity, and the smaller the value the better. Learn more.
