10% measuring instruments fail quality test

NEARLY 10 percent of Shanghai-made measuring instruments such as taximeters and electronic scales failed a quality test, local quality watchdogs said today.

Authorities check the products of 32 Shanghai companies in the second half of this year. They include pressure gauges, pressure transmitters, taximeters, blood pressure monitors, electromagnetic flow meters and vortex shedding flow meters.

Tests showed that 91 percent of the products met their quality standards. Some pressure gauges and taximeters failed the full-performance test, but the watchdog didn't specify their problems.

The test of electronic price-computing scales and flow meters are still in process, said Shen Weimin, deputy director of the Shanghai Quality and Technical Supervision Bureau.

Shen said the bureau also tested electronic price-computing scales sold on the market. Nearly 400 scales used chips designed to overcharge customers. Most of them were made by companies outside Shanghai.

Shen said the bureau's law enforcement teams have punished the offenders.
