Metrological Traceability in Calibration – Are you traceable?

What is metrological traceability in calibration and how can you be traceable?

Metrological Traceability in Calibration – Are you traceable?

In calibration, the metrological traceability is a fundamental consideration. If the calibrations you perform in your plant are not traceable, you don’t know if they are correct or not and therefore there is really no point in doing them.

Calibration uncertainty for dummies – Part 3: Is it Pass or Fail?

Calibration uncertainty - Beamex blog post

 

In this post we discuss the following scenario: You have done the calibration, have the results on the certificate and you compare results to the tolerance limits. It’s time to pop the big question: Is it a Passed or Failed calibration? Or is it In or Out of Tolerance?

Calibration out of tolerance – ready to hit the Panic button?

In this post we are talking about calibration being “Out of Tolerance” (OoT).
When you calibrate something and the result is a “Fail”, then it is an Out of Tolerance-situation.
But it’s not all that simple - there is more to it and more things to be considere

This is the second blog post (out of three) continuing on the subject of calibration uncertainty. In the first blog post we discussed the basics; how important it is to be aware of the uncertainty, short terminology and the classic “piece of string“ example.  If you missed the Part 1-blog post, you can find it in the below link. If you want to get all the parts at once, feel free to download the related full white paper from the link below.

Proof Testing: Calibration By A Different Name?

Posted by Andy Morsman on Nov 8, 2016 2:39:45 PM

The oil and Gas industry in the North Sea has been hit by a Perfect Storm – the rapid fall in the price of oil to levels less than the average extraction cost has resulted in the delay or cancellation of a huge number of investment projects.

How to implement calibration software

Posted by Villy Lindfelt on Oct 13, 2016 2:25:55 PM

Getting calibration software is much more than just selecting the right product and buying the necessary amount of licenses. The hardest part is actually to get people to use the calibration software in the right way. And especially within a set project budget and time limitations. To achieve this, you should see the calibration software implementation as a project with certain steps.
