We spent today modifying the Gox static test stand plumbing so that we can perform a metering orifice validation test two weeks from now. The test will measure the actual mass flow rate and we will then compare this value to the [calculated value](http://psas.pdx.edu/WaxPlumbing/2003test-orifice.pdf).

The test will consist of filling a small empty high-pressure bottle with a much larger high-pressure oxygen bottle via the [metering orifice](http://psas.pdx.edu/MeteringOrifice).

Here is an early [idea](http://psas.pdx.edu/MeetingNotes30Oct04/meteringorificetest.pdf) on how we might perform the metering orifice test by displacing water in a container. We decided to abandon this idea in favor of a bottle pressurizing [method.](http://psas.pdx.edu/MeetingNotes13Nov04/tankfill.pdf)

Here is the [procedure](http://psas.pdx.edu/MeetingNotes13Nov04/meteringtestv1.0.pdf) for performing the pressurizing test.
