Efficiency, safety and compliance
In the power generation industry, it is essential to maintain the highest possible standards of safety while ensuring regulatory compliance. Operators are also under pressure to optimize efficiency, which can be achieved with the right resources, knowledge, tools and support.
For power generation professionals, a modern, automated calibration solution supports compliance with industry regulations and documentation requirements while maintaining the highest level of safety.
Experience a better way to power up your business
Many of the world’s leading power generation companies depend on the Beamex calibration ecosystem. Designed to help customers achieve their calibration-related goals in line with regulations, such as those from the EPA.
Our calibration solutions have been developed over nearly 50 years by combining our own experience with feedback gained through close cooperation with major power industry partners.
Industry trends and insights
Calibration is an essential activity in power plants and there are various benefits to establishing a proper calibration process. This article provides an overview of calibration management in power plants.

While the pen might be mightier than the sword, in process industries pen and paper-based calibration systems are a weak spot that is desperately in need of attention. Automating your calibration ecosystem saves time, reduces the risk of errors and enables your organization to use calibration data for business benefits.

What our power industry customers say
With this software integration project, we were able to realize a significant return on investment during the first unit overhaul. It’s unusual, since ROI on software projects is usually nonexistent at first.
There were errors in the settings of six sensors in the critical system. External suppliers lack the understanding of the bigger picture that we strive for. In this way, the Beamex equipment has given us a higher level of safety.
The most significant impact overall is that Salt River Project has been able to save about 30 minutes per calibration using an automated approach. Calibration tasks that would normally take a month to two months to complete during a unit overhaul can be performed in a few weeks, and time is money.

With the Beamex solution, we have complete flexibility, so we can perform many calibrations in between other daily tasks. This flexibility is important in a busy workplace where more urgent tasks often arise and need to be prioritised.
With the Beamex system, we now have all the calibration data stored digitally. Before this was stored on an external server. But now they are more concretely “our data” and can in the long term be even further integrated into our overall maintenance system if we decide to expand our software solution.
What used to take three or four of us to do in the past, can be done by one, maybe two of us. Just the Beamex MC6, alone is like having another technician on staff.
Time is of the essence during an outage and the Beamex calibration solution allows technicians to maximize the amount of work accomplished in the shortest amount of time, while effectively performing vital tasks and managing workflows.
How a business analyst connected calibration and asset management [Case Story]
One of America’s largest public power utilities integrated its asset management software with calibration management software to reduce risk and increase efficiency, saving about 30 minutes per calibration using an automated approach.
