Calibration Laboratory set-up project consultancy

Calibration is an important aspect of maintaining the traceability of measurement. Calibration establishes the confidence in the use of equipment and ensure quality of products measured by calibrated equipment. Calibration needs with unbroken chain to establish the measurement traceability. It means the reference standard or master equipment used in the calibration of equipment under calibration must be calibrated from ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration laboratory and must be valid at the time of measurement / calibration, and this should be so on till the last equipment in the chain, which is maintained by National Physical Laboratory.

Calibration means matching the standard value of the instrument to the master (True) Instrument value. Calibration in measurement technology and metrology is the comparison of measurement values delivered by a device under test with those of a calibration standard of known accuracy.

Calibration is performed mainly in disciplines, as detailed out below:

  • Mechanical disciplines cover all types of mechanical measurement such as dimensional calibration, pressure calibration, force calibration, torque calibration, hardness calibration, mass and weighing balance calibration, density, viscosity etc.,
  • Electro-technical or electrical discipline covers the source and measure of electrical parameters, such as volt, current, resistance, frequency, impendence, inductance, capacitance including electrical simulation for the temperature etc.
  • Thermal (Called as specific heat and humidity) discipline covers the temperature and humidity.
  • Fluid flow discipline covers the flow calibration of liquid and gases.

The main reasons for calibration are to ensure the reliability of the instrument, that it can be trusted. To determine the accuracy of the instrument and to ensure the readings are consistent with other measurements. We provide full guidance to the present lab as well as potential lab for establishment of calibration lab set-up as per the steps given below;
