All instruments, including calibrators, need to be calibrated regularly.
Keeping your calibrator up to date with regular recalibration is important to maintain high-quality specifications. Furthermore, a traceable, accredited calibration certificate is needed if your plant operates according to a quality control system, such as the ISO 9000 quality control system, and/or if you must provide proof of measurements and traceability to your customers.
In critical applications, the costs of an out-of-tolerance situation can be extremely high, and therefore it is safer to calibrate your equipment more often. To provide recalibration services for a wide range of calibration products and different measurement signals, Beamex has its own state-of-the-art calibration facility in Finland, which is ISO 9001 certified (since 1992) and ISO 17025 accredited (since 1993) by FINAS (Finnish Accreditation Service). In the US, we also have a local lab in Marietta, GA where we provide NIST traceable calibrations and repairs.
The ISO 17025 certified calibration certificate contains valuable information about each individual calibrator, such as its measuring results, expanded uncertainty, deviation, specifications and assessment of compliance with the manufacturer’s specifications.
