Calibration of any device used in a system that measures temperature.
Temperature refers to the calibration of any device used in a system that measures temperature. Most importantly, this usually means the temperature sensor, itself, which is typically a platinum resistance thermometer (PRT or PT-100), thermocouple or the indicator; also known as the controller.
For the safe and effective operation of industrial processes, accurate measurement of temperature is crucial. Some industries that require accurate temperature measurement are metal fabrication, power generation, chemical, pharmaceutical & offshore installations. Temperature measurements also play an important role in the evaluation of energy efficiency in, for example, building insulation.
Temperature instruments that we calibrate at our own laboratories or on-site include, but are not limited to: Contact thermometers from -40 °C to 250 °C, Platinum resistance thermometers (PRTs) from -40 °C to 550 °C, thermocouples from -40 °C to 850 °C, liquid-in-glass thermometers from -25 °C to 150 °C, portable thermometers, controllers, indicators, water baths, process calibrators and various other temperature installations.
