The purpose of calibration services

Regardless of the industry, there is an intrinsic value in the accuracy of measurements. The accuracy of a measurement is typically defined by being within a range of certain limits, or “tolerance”. A tolerance can be depicted as a percentage or a constant measurement above or below the target measurement. For example, if you bought a tape measure from a hardware store and it said the accuracy was within ± 116 inch, your measurement of 12 inches could actually fall between 111516 inches to 12116 inches and still be considered accurate per the manufacturer’s specifications.

Our standard calibration services provide you with the assurance that your instrument is within the tolerance the manufacturer or you have specified. These calibrations are ideal if you have no concern for precision measurements more accurate than the specified tolerance.

There are some calibration standards, such as our accredited calibration services, that require the equipment we use to calibrate your unit to be more accurate. Using the tape measure example again, that would mean we must maintain an accuracy of four times greater than your tape measure. So our measurement capability would have to be more accurate than 164 inch. How this translates is that we can calibrate your tape measure’s tolerance to be within 116364 inches to 12164 inches.


Why calibration services are important

The above example is a simple, yet hypothetical example. The accuracy of a measurement directly affects the integrity of how something operates.

Would you be willing to pay for 20 gallons of gas if you really only got 18 because the pump’s flow meter was inaccurate?

Would you want to miss all your turns when using your GPS because it was only accurate up to a quarter mile?

Would you accept a citation for speeding because the officer’s radar gun was off by 10mph?

More importantly, accurate calibrations are also extremely critical to anything that is safety-related. What if a pharmaceutical company failed to properly calibrate their equipment and mistakenly added too much of a chemical to a particular medicine?

As you can see, metrology is an integral part of our infrastructure. There are countless examples of use-case scenarios where accuracy is important. Our mission is to help you avert risk and solve your challenges by ensuring your equipment is properly calibrated.

All of our calibrations are traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
