Onsite Instrumentation Calibration Services

Instrumentation Testing

FCX Services uses test equipment that is certified according to AMS 2750E standards and is NIST traceable. We perform test instrument calibrations in our own ISO/IEC 17025 accredited certification lab.

Onsite calibrations can be performed in several ways, depending on whether or not your process is running, and if test probes can be placed adjacent to your temperature sensors. These tests are referred to as:

System Accuracy Tests

This preferred test is performed by:

  • Placing a certified test sensor as close to the sensor tip as practical
  • Comparing the reading from the test sensor to the reading of the system

Comparison Tests

If the sensor to be tested is not accessible with your process running, the accuracy of

your instrument reading can then be determined by:

  • Connecting a test instrument to the sensor
  • Comparing the two readings 

Multi-Point Calibration Tests

If your process is not running, the instrument can be calibrated at multiple points throughout the operating temperature range per your specification.
