The key aspects of building a calibration system business case

Posted by Villy Lindfelt on Mar 01, 2016

An investment into calibration equipment and systems must be financially justified, just like any other business investment. But does a cheaper cost of purchase always mean a higher return on investment? Not necessarily. When building a business case for calibration calibration system investment, what may seem at the outset to be cheaper may not necessarily be so, if the evaluation is made from total or life cycle cost perspective instead of evaluating cost of purchase only.

Field Calibration or Workshop Calibration?

Posted by beamexcalibration on Feb 23, 2016

We are sometimes asked if it is better to calibrate process instruments in the field, or in a calibration workshop. It is obviously impossible for us to give a correct generic answer for that question. The right answer for each application depends on various things. In this post I have listed a few common arguments for both field calibration and workshop calibration.

How often should instruments be calibrated?

Posted by beamexcalibration on Jan 07, 2016

One of the questions we get asked most frequently is how often a customer should calibrate his instruments. Unfortunately there is no straight answer to this, at least not one that would always be correct. Instead there is a list of variables that should be taken into account when deciding the calibration period for any measurement device. Let’s take a quick look at these variables.

Calibrating a square rooting pressure transmitter

Posted by beamexcalibration on Dec 10, 2015

We quite often receive questions regarding the calibration of a square rooting pressure transmitter.  Most often the concern is that the calibration fails too easily at the zero point. There is a reason for that, so let’s find out what that is.
