Instrument Calibration Services
Instrument calibration service providers calibrate various instruments including many types of process monitoring devices and analytical equipment.
Types of instruments that can be calibrated include:
Flow instrumentssuch as flow meters and sensors, gauges, totalizers or valve position indicators
Pressure and vacuum instruments such as pressure sensors or gauges, meters, transducers or vacuum pumps
Force, weight or mass instruments including strain gauges, load cells, scales or torque monitors
Temperature instruments including thermocouple, RTD or thermistor type devices
Humidity instruments including absolute or relative humidity, moisture content or dew point measuring devices
Multimeter or electrical meters, either analog or digital
Physical or dimensional instrumentssuch as calipers, and micrometers, fiber optic or lightwave instruments including multiplexers, analyzers, isolators etc
RF or microwave instruments such as transmitters, receivers, antennas etc.
Power supplies including any AC or DC power supply or conditioners
Oscilloscopes or chart recorders
Signal or function analyzers
Standards and Certifications
Providers of instrument calibration services may have one of several calibration quality requirements. These include:
ISO / IEC 17025
ANSI / NCSL Z540-1
A2LA, ISO 9001
GMP / FDA quality requirements
Services and Features
Specific services offered by providers of instrument calibration services include rapid turnaround, on-site calibration, pickup and delivery, calibration documentation, in-house contract lab services, and online documentation.
Rapid turnaround means the supplier offers quick turnaround on instrument calibration services, typically in a few days.
A supplier offering on-site calibration has personnel and/or equipment for on-site calibration work, eliminating the added expense of taking the instrument off line and shipping it.
The supplier offers pick-up and delivery services to minimize cost and time associated with using in-house personnel.
Documentation or test reports show calibration information such as "as found" and "as left" data, next scheduled calibration, etc with calibration documentation.
A supplier that offers in-house contract lab services has capabilities and resources for setting up an in-house contract lab for supplier - minimizing any downtime or lag in getting instruments quickly calibrated.
Supplier has online documentation system to access history, calibration certifications and recalibration notifications.
