Calibration, pressure, temperature, and electrical
Measuring instruments must be correct. Does a petrol pump indicate that 50 liters of petrol have been refueled? Then we want to be able to trust that that is really 50 liters. Does a German car manufacturer ask for a bolt with a diameter of 6 millimeters? Then the supplier in Korea must supply a bolt with exactly that diameter. A calibration laboratory determines whether the value of a measuring instrument is correct in relation to the international unit of measurement. That is important for the entire production chain. The work of calibration laboratories thus forms the foundation for other disciplines.
We offer two calibration levels for test and measurement equipment purchased from Eurotron Instruments Benelux B.V. All new products can be supplied with a standard calibration certificate and at an additional cost with an ISO 17025 certificate (RVA, UKAS or similar).
The two calibration levels are:
- Standard calibration
Calibration, performed by the manufacturer or calibration lab. Calibration certificate with:
- Calibration results
- Mention calibration standard with reference to calibration laboratory where the standard is calibrated
- Integrity stamps
- Advice for recalibration
- Accredited calibration
Calibration laboratories are accredited in each country on the basis of the ISO / IEC 17025 standard. Accredited laboratories are obliged to participate in proficiency tests: studies in which the test results from different laboratories are compared.
In addition to the standard calibration, this calibration also includes:
- Calibration in accordance with approved procedures
- RvA certificates
- Equipment with calibration approved by RvA
In the Netherlands, this accreditation is carried out by the RvA (Dutch Accreditation Council)
Below are a number of examples of accreditation bodies in other countries:
- United Kingdom: UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service)
- Germany: DKD (Deutscher Kalibrierdienst)
- Belgium: BELAC (Belgian Accreditation Institution)
