Temperature Calibration

A reliable source for Calibrating Service information and leading Calibrating Service Companies

To use them, operators attach the calibrator directly to the sensing instrument, along with the substance it is meant to measure. For example, to make sure a food thermometer is working correctly, they can drop it into a cup of ice water, along with your calibration device. While the temperature testing device is emerged, operators can see what temperature it displays in comparison to the temperature the calibrator displays. Read More…

Temperature Calibration The term “temperature calibration” refers to the process through which operators calibrate, or adjust for accuracy, temperature measuring devices. Temperature calibration ensures that temperature reading instruments, like thermocouples, account for all environmental factors when measuring temperature.

The value that the calibrator displays is the correct one. If the temperature is off at all, they can then adjust the sensing device until it matches the value displayed on the calibrator. Once the task is complete, a technician will detail the test and certify the accuracy of the sensing device. Temperature calibration is important for a wide variety of reasons. First, it ensures the safety of many foods. Food that is too cold or, more often, too hot, can be dangerous to consume. Food above a certain temperature is susceptible to bacterial growth. Scalding hot food can also burn you. Temperature calibration also ensures the safety and high quality of other substances, such as fuel or lab chemicals.

Temperature calibration is essential in industries such as: food and beverage, meteorology, automotive, aerospace, industrial cleaning, laboratory, research, chemical processing, healthcare and manufacturing. People in these industries use temperature calibration at various points in the life of a system or instrument. For example, system operators typically calibrate their temperature sensing devices when they first install it. Many system operators also check calibrate their devices from time to time to make sure that they have not become inaccurate. Inaccurate readings can occur as a result of jarring events like vibration and shock. In addition, they use temperature calibration if and when their devices offer up an unlikely or problematic reading.

Temperature calibration is generally fast and easy. It has virtually no downsides. The only questions you will need to answer are what type of temperature calibration method is best for you, and how often you should calibrate your system or instruments.
