In-House Calibration Could be a Mistake

Companies that require calibration services on their tools and equipment must choose in house calibration could be a mistakefrom two main delivery methods. These are “in-house calibration,” where the company itself provides the calibration, and “external calibration,” where the company outsources the work to a calibration lab; preferably one that is reputable and accredited.

The Importance of Calibration

Why calibration is essential in an age of technological ubiquity

 Take a look around you. What do you see? No matter where you’re at right now, you are surrounded by human developments and inventions: Computers, eye glasses, walls, clothing, phones, and even the text that you’re currently reading on the screen. These are all extensions of our individually limited human capacities. The wheel is an extension of our feet and legs, clothing an extension of the skin, computers an extension of our brains. These are all technologies that play essential roles in our daily lives, and there is one thing that they all have in common: measurement.

Quality Calibration by any Measure

George Bernard Shaw once said, “The only man who behaves sensibly is my tailor; he takes my measure anew every time he sees me, whilst all the rest go on with their old measurements, and expect them to fit me.” If Shaw hadn’t expired in 1950, and instead lived to the modern age, he would have undoubtedly included e2b calibration on his list of those who take sensible measurements.

Flow Meter Calibration: Going With the Flow… Meter

Flow meters are very popular instruments to calibrate. That is because flow meters can be used in many lines of work, and their accuracy can make or break any operating procedure. Therefore, it is incredibly important to make sure your flow meter displays the proper measurements. No matter what type of flow meter you may have, they need to be checked for calibration periodically. Continue reading

The Etymology of “Calibration”

The word “calibration” first appeared in the English language during the American Civil War. It comes from the French word “caliber,” which refers to the measurable diameter of a gun’s bore, as well as the Arabic word “qalib,” which derives from the Greek “calapous.”

 As a verb, the word “calibrate” ends in the suffix “ate,” which refers to acting in a specified manner. Ergo, to “calibrate” means to make measurements in a specified manner.    



What is calibration anyway?

What is Calibration? Some people will do a field comparison check of two meters or instruments, and if they give the same reading then they’ll call them “calibrated.” This is just a field check, not actual calibration. This might show you if there’s an inconsistency between your meters, but it won’t show you which meter is correct. Also, if both meters are out-of-sync, and in the same direction, then a mere comparison won’t tell you anything. It might lead you to believe that both meters are operating efficiently.

Cleveland Calibration Lab Talks ISO Certification

When it comes to choosing a calibration lab, it is very important to choose an ISO 17025 accredited lab over a non-accredited lab. Yet, be aware that ISO 17025 “compliant” is not the same thing as being “accredited.” Anyone can be “compliant,” but accreditation relies on the expertise of a professional auditor. Continue reading
