Calibration Definition - What is calibration?
Calibration is the process by which, equipment is tested on its ability to measure correctly by comparing it to a standard. The standard, however, can be arbitrary, it is therefore important to use a company that can trace its calibration methods back to some international agreed upon standard. It is also important to note that calibration is not the act of adjusting the equipment, only the act of testing whether it is measuring correctly. If the equipment needs adjusting, there has to be a calibration before adjustment and another calibration after adjustment to make sure it is measuring within the accepted parameters.
Why should I calibrate?
Most often calibration is performed to be able to secure the quality of your product, due to customer demand or due to legislation in order to prevent “out of compliance” situations. But even if you do not need to calibrate, there are some advantages to calibration. With calibrated equipment you are able to run closer to your process parameters, narrowing down your margin of error, which in turn will use fewer raw materials and save you money.
Which calibration services do we offer?
We offer independent calibration within the fields of conductivity, mass flow and temperature. As a laboratory accredited by DANAK (Danish Accreditation and Metrology Fund) on conductivity and mass flow we offer full documentation as well as guarantee, that your equipment will be calibrated to one of the highest international standards. We are also able to service any malfunctioning equipment as well as offer expert advice on the rules and regulation that apply in your chosen field.
Why should you choose us?
We have years of experience within the field of precision calibration and our staff can offer expert advice on almost any problems you might have regarding calibration. Our laboratory is regularly audited by the authorities to ensure we meet the ISO 17025 standard which covers issues such as technical competences, traceability of results, suitability of reference equipment and the Quality Assurance / Quality Control system.
Accredited conductivity calibration - One of only a few in the world
We are one of only a few companies in the world that offer accredited calibration on conductivity. The accreditation guarantees that you get traceable documentation proving your equipment is within specifications and has been evaluated by an independent calibration facility. Using us also ensures that your equipment is calibrated to the standards required by United States Pharmacopeia (USP) or European Pharmacopeia (EP).
We maintain traceability by having our references calibrated by national or international calibration laboratories that are accredited according to ISO 17025. For example our traceability on conductivity is provided by the Danish Fundamental Metrology (DFM), which is the National Metrology Institute (NMI) for conductivity in Denmark.
