Controlling temperature is essential to many processes across different industries, including, refineries, laboratories, and manufacturing facilities.
At Allometrics, we have provided traceable thermometer calibration services for more than 40 years, making us the preferred ISO 17025 accredited laboratory in the region.
What Are Industrial Thermometers?
Industrial thermometers are instruments used for temperature measurement in many industrial operations.
Incorrect temperature readings can disrupt the manufacturing process and cause considerable damages in both product quality and revenue. Additionally, inaccurate temperature readings can endanger the life of workers.
Why is Thermometer Calibration Necessary?
Every time a thermometer is heated, the liquid in the interior of its bulb expands, forcing it into the capillary. It is from the liquid’s location inside the capillary that plant works can determine the temperature value.
However, the repeated heating and cooling cycles impart stress to the bulb. Over time the wear and tear will cause slight changes in bulb volume due to the continued expansion and contraction, leading to inaccuracies in temperature readings.
Thermometer calibration updates the indications and restores the accuracy, and reliability of temperature measurement results.
Allometrics thermometer calibration compares the output of your instrument to those of a NIST certified primary master standard at the points specified by you or ICL. All our calibrations are in strict accordance with ASTM and NIST test methods.
After calibration, we will issue a new NIST Traceable certificate of calibration. This certificate is guaranteed to meet the following quality standards and requirements:
- ISO/IEC Guide 25
- ISO/IEC 17025 (when accredited calibration is specified)
- The FDA
- The EPA
- ISO 9000
- QS 9000
It’s important to remember that regular calibration intervals and updated document traceability to NIST are imperative to retain compliance requirements for most quality programs, including the ISO 9000 series.
How Often Should You Calibrate Your Thermometers?
Calibration intervals vary depending on:
- Manufacturer Specifications
- Frequency of Use
- Usage Temperature Ranges
- the Regulatory Agencies or The Quality System Compliance Requirements
For most industrial and laboratory applications, a calibration interval of one year is prudent. However, if you notice any inconsistencies in your temperature readings, we strongly suggest you contact us immediately to schedule a thermometer calibration service.
