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.

Manual entry is still commonly used in industrial processes even though it is a slow and labor-intensive process with a high possibility of human error. In this article we discuss industrial calibration processes and the manual data entry related to these processes.

What our power industry customers say
The Beamex CMX Analytics Dashboard project has been great in collecting the data and has given us the ability to run amazing reports. (Now) we are taking it to a whole new level in what we do with that data and making it easy to analyze, which is the next step in shifting towards predictive and prescriptive maintenance when it comes to instrumentation.Russell Genet, IC&E Supervisor, Salt River Project, US
The amount of equipment required to perform calibrations has dropped from an average of 5 to 1, and 80 standards have been retired due to the multifunction capabilities of the MC6. No matter who uses the system, the work is performed in the same manner in CMX, which creates a more reliable system and high data confidence.
By removing all manual steps in the workflow, and eliminating all the paper from the dataflow, the plant has realized a documented time savings of 70%, even up to 75% in some cases, on calibrating pressure transmitters and pressure switches.
Our program was a mess. We were still using paper and pen. Everyone completed the process differently. It was a huge problem that could cost the company money. With the permission of the plant manager, I purchased Beamex MC6 documenting calibrators, modules and CMX software. And the rest is how legends begin.
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 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.
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.
