Understanding the Difference between Calibration and Validation

In every manufacturing facility, calibration and validation must be carried out to assure high quality of the product. You must carry out these processes on a regular basis, rather them being just a one-off activity, if you want to meet all the regulatory requirements. Let us learn more about them. Calibration – A Brief Overview […]

Instrument Calibration: How Often Should You Do It

Instrument calibration is absolutely essential. There are no two ways about it. It can be defined as the process of comparing the measurements made by the instrument to be calibrated against a calibration standard of known accuracy. The device under test can also be calibrated by comparing with an instrument known for its accurate results. […]

When Must You Calibrate Your Test Equipment

Calibration of an instrument involves comparing the measurements of two instruments, one which has a known magnitude (also known as the standard) against the instrument whose unit measure is under the test. The calibration standard must be more accurate than the instrument under test. Calibration establishes a relation between a) the quantity values with measurement […]

A DIY Guide to Calibrating a Torque Wrench

A torque wrench is a tool that can measure the tension and twist of nuts and bolts to ensure that they are tight enough without over-tightening them. This instrument looks like a long-armed wrench which bends when you apply the turning force to the handle. Its handle contains an internal mechanical indicator which is connected […]

Why and How to Calibrate Temperature Sensors in the Process Industry

Numerous processes have certain temperature requirements. It is critical that this temperature is achieved and maintained throughout the process. Thus, temperature sensors must be located in the processes and instrumentation. Usually, they are embedded on valves, turbines, motors, bearings, etc. They can be a part of smart devices like flow meters, level transmitters and pressure […]
