4.1.7 Ensure that there is no loss during transfer.
4.1.8 Verify the water level in the tank on baffle plate marking and record the observation.
4.1.9 The difference between theoretical volume ( Tv) and checked volume (Cv) should be in prescribed tolerance limits.
4.1.10 Repeat step no. 4.1.3 to 4.1.9 with 49.80 kg of purified water till the required volume of purified water is transferred.
4.2.11 If the calibration is satisfactory, affix the calibration label to the side of the tank as per Annexure-I.
