Load Cell Calibration using a totalizer on a flow meter

#1
Hello -

First of all, thank you for taking the time to read this.
Now, for the last several years, I have been working in a pharmaceutical plant and we do in house calibrations. One of which is load cells. Typically we have used a calibrated flow meter and stopwatch at a set rate to measure load deflection in a vessel and on the load cells.
I have been tasked with utilizing the flow totalizer in getting load cells calibrated that way. I am having trouble with accounting for holdup volume on the hose going from the flow standard to the vessel I am calibrating. It is off an average of 8-10 liters. I need it to match as precisely as possible.

Does anyone have any experience in doing the load cell calibration using a totalizer on a flow meter? What am I missing here?
Thanks for your help!
