Calibration and hire
We operate a metrological calibration facility available on request for the calibration of mass, capacity and linear measures.
Each item submitted for calibration is returned with a fully traceable calibration certificate acceptable for most quality systems.
Each certificate specifies the equipment used and the method employed. All equipment used carries a calibration certificate, which is directly traceable to national standards via the National Weights and Measures Laboratory at Teddington.
Capacities offered within the service are:
- Mass 1 milligram to 20 kilogrammes
- Capacity up to and including 20 litres
- Length up to and including 20 metres
We also have the facilities to test weights up to 1000 kilogrammes.
Calibration takes place in purpose built modern laboratories where the environment is strictly controlled.
