Common Calibration Methods for Measurement Devices

Paying special attention to the performance of your equipment can substantially improve product quality and accuracy. However, to ensure the end result of a product or system consecutively meets pre-established guidelines, measurement equipment of various types should be calibrated based on their verified calibration level. As measurement devices are subjected to external phenomena from their surrounding environment, daily operational functions may disrupt measurement values. Within industries such as science fields and aviation, there are many instances where accurate calibrations need to be conducted. Therefore, let us talk about the various options available to find what solutions best suit your needs.

Pressure Calibration - Often used for gas and hydraulic pressure devices during routine inspection, pressure calibration equipment is employed to ensure that the measurement of pressure within a device remains accurate. Equipment in need of regular pressure calibration include: digital pressure gauges, digital indicators, transducers, transmitters, analogue pressure gauges, barometers, and test gauges.

Temperature Calibration - Used wherever temperature measurements are continuously observed, temperature calibration is critical to ensuring all parts remain below a certain heat threshold. Instruments reliant on temperature calibration include: data acquisition systems, thermometers/thermocouples, dial thermometers, chambers/furnaces, infrared meters, thermistors, thermal cameras, and more.

Flow Calibration - To accurately calibrate flow for the linear, nonlinear, mass, or volumetric flow rates of a liquid or gas, a test device like a flow meter is mandatory. Also referred to as flow sensors, these devices process how fast a fluid is traveling through a network at a certain point to accurately regulate flow. A prominent monitoring tool among industrial applications, flow calibration tools maximize the productivity of transferring materials to optimize resources while ensuring regulatory requirements are exceeded. Calibrated periodically to reinforce the optimal performance of all parts aiding in an operation, thermal mass flowmeters, laminar flow meters, rotameters—used for gas and air applications—and turbine meters are all devices that require frequent calibration.

Pipette Calibration - Specifically reserved for laboratory settings where liquids are to be measured, pipette calibration devices are essential for dispensing the exact volume of a specimen where needed. Available in single-channel, multi-channel, and electronic pipette types, pipette calibration systems are essential for electronic pipettes where consistency is a necessity.

Mechanical Calibration - Subject to drift with regular usage, mechanical parts must be calibrated to maintain their original settings. Susceptible to inaccurate or false readings without repetitive recalibration, calibration of mechanical parts like accelerometers, scales, micrometers, torque wrenches, weightmass sets, and more is critical to avoid severely affecting product results.

Electrical Calibration - Electrical calibration is essential for equipment that evaluate and test electrical parameters. To guarantee that test devices are precise when measuring voltage, current, resistance, inductance, capacitance, time, and frequency for any unit under test (UUT), they must be routinely inspected. Electrical equipment that benefit from regular calibration inspection include: multimeters, electrical meters, oscilloscopes, insulation testers, clamp meters, data loggers, and much more.
