A Tale of Three Steves

Stephen Jerge, Calibration Supervisor for Lonza Biologics, a multinational chemical and biotechnology company, recently walked attendees of the Beamex Annual Calibration Exchange (ACE) through the project he headed to transition from a paper-based calibration management system (CMS) to an integrated, digital, paperless solution using Beamex CMX. Steve has over 30 years of calibration experience in the telecommunication and pharmaceutical industries.

Over the last 3 years, his primary focus has been contributing to Lonza’s global paperless SAP/CMX integrated solution through implementation, training, and supporting calibration operations and expansion projects.

In this blog post, we’ll share The Tale of Three Steve’s as we follow his journey from 2017 Steve, a stressed-out, overworked supervisor; to 2019 Steve as he underwent the rollout of a new, automated system; to Steve 2021, whose focus is on continuous improvement.

Calibration of a HART transmitter and the most common misconceptions about a HART communicator

Posted by beamexcalibration on Jan 26, 2016

A HART transmitter is the most common smart transmitter type used in the process industry. What should be taken into account when calibrating and trimming a HART transmitter? Let’s take a look at the most important things to take into consideration. And also, let’s set straight the most common misconceptions regarding HART communicators.

Vibration measurements and calibration

Posted by beamexcalibration on Jan 18, 2016

Seismic velocity measurements provide ideal resolution at typical rotating equipment running speeds. Vibration is always transmitted through the bearings used on rotating equipment. It has been proven time and time again that measuring vibration on rotating equipment is the most universally effective predictive maintenance practice for critical pumps, motors, compressors, fans, cooling towers and rollers.

For example, over time, industrial motor bearings wear out and begin to wobble. Eventually these bearings will need to be replaced, or the machine will fail. But how do you measure the bearing performance to be sure you aren’t changing them out too soon, or in an even worse case, waiting until the machine breaks down and it’s too late? There is a whole world of 4-20 mA loop vibration sensors, like the Seismic Velocity 4-20 mA transmitter from Metrix or IMI Sensors, and they are gaining in popularity.

How to calibrate a pressure switch

Posted by beamexcalibration on Nov 30, 2015

Update March 2020: We have a newer blog post on pressure switches, please find it here: Pressure Switch Calibration

We often get asked questions regarding the calibration of a pressure switch.
 Since we didn’t have any videos on the topic on our YouTube channel, our dynamic duo from our US office, Roy and Ned, decided to make one.
