Calibration is the process of checking, by comparison with a standard, the accuracy of a measuring instrument of any type such as a pressure gauge or an industrial thermometer. It may also include adjustments to the instrument to match the standard.
Calibration of your temperature and pressure instruments has two objectives. It checks the accuracy of the instrument, and it determines the traceability of the measurement. In practice, calibration may also include the repair of the device if it is out of calibration. A report is provided by the calibration technician, which shows the error in measurements with the measuring device before and after the calibration.
Why is Calibration So Important?
All measuring devices lose accuracy with time, usually due to normal wear and tear from repeated usage. Electric or mechanical stress may also create changes in the accuracy of equipment, depending on the environment. Calibration compares the standard measurements to your equipment's measurements to verify consistency. It's critical that you have your equipment calibrated on a regular basis for the following reasons:
The frequency of calibration depends on the balance between risk and costs. The shorter the time between calibrations, the lower the risk of questionable measurements. Floyd Australia recommends having measuring instruments calibrated every three (3), six (6), or twelve (12) months, which is dependent on the application of the measuring instrument. Rather, here are several factors that influence the right calibration period:
