The Reality of Instrument Calibration Services

The most basic rule of calibration is the most often overlooked. All equipment will go out of calibration for several different reasons including shock loading, voltage surges, poor handling and general usage. As a result, you may be losing more accuracy than you think. All of the circumstances above are out of most companies’ control.

How do you determine the right calibration interval?

Please Use the Following Guide:

Hours Used Per Day Recommended Number of Visits per Year
1 hour or less ONCE (Accuracy not as important)
1-2 hours TWICE (Manufacturer recommendation)
3-4 hours QUARTERLY (Accuracy critical)
5 or more hours MONTHLY (Accuracy extremely critical)

Your advantages:

  • Extends the life of your equipment
  • Reduces product downtimes
  • Ensures optimal performance
  • Ensures regulatory compliance
  • Easily budget maintenance costs with service agreements
