The measuring implements used in a laboratory or manufacturing setting have a significant impact on product output. Well-calibrated instruments provide consistent results, allowing you to improve safety and reduce material waste. Our Garber Metrology calibration team has the expertise and equipment to perform graduated cylinder calibration to ensure your equipment functions as it should.
Graduated cylinders are a standard piece of laboratory equipment used for measuring liquid volume or the volume of a solid through fluid displacement. These tools provide more accurate measurements than a flask or beaker, making them ideal for applications where exact volume numbers are needed. The equipment must be appropriately calibrated to provide proper readings.
Calibrating a graduated cylinder involves measuring the mass of the empty container and comparing that measurement to the mass when filled with water. The mass can then be converted to volume to compare the actual liquid volume to the measurement provided by the graduated cylinder. Those who perform calibrations must also measure temperature, humidity and air pressure, as each of these factors can change the volume measurement.
You should schedule professional graduated cylinder calibration every few months to avoid performance issues and ensure your equipment provides reliable measurements.
Fluid property and volume calibration play a vital role in graduated cylinder calibration. Fluid property measures the viscosity, density and temperature of various fluids, from water to motor oil.
Volume calibration makes measurements accurate and precise by ensuring all containers of liquid have the fluid volume indicated by the markings on the side of the measuring tool. When working with potentially hazardous fluids, having an exact measurement keeps products safer for consumers. Volume calibration is available for many containers, including glassware like graduated cylinders.
When volume calibrations or fluid properties are inaccurate, outcome errors occur. Experts in calibration can ensure your equipment provides the proper measurements.
