Refrigerator Calibration Services

Refrigerator calibration checks the temperature on your fridge’s display reading and compares it to the reading on a different testing device to ensure the temperature is accurate. It is essential to keep your refrigerator calibrated to stay compliant and protect your stock. At Garber Metrology, we offer refrigeration calibration for the pharmaceutical and food industry and other sectors as needed.

Our Refrigerator Calibration Procedure

Although refrigerators have built-in thermometers, it’s still necessary to recalibrate them every year to ensure the temperature is displayed correctly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requires all medical refrigerators to be at a temperature of 35.6 to 46.4 degrees Fahrenheit (2 to 8 degrees Celsius) to keep vaccines in optimal condition. The same strict requirements apply to food and beverage refrigerators. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), food and beverage refrigerators should be at a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit (4.4 degrees Celsius) or lower to prevent food from spoiling.

If the thermostat detects too much heat present in the fridge, it signals the compressor to release more refrigerant to drop the temperature. However, if the thermostat malfunctions, it will keep your fridge at the incorrect setting while displaying the desired temperature on the display screen. That’s why it’s crucial to have a calibrated refrigerator thermostat and thermometer that provide accurate readings and allow you to know the true temperature of your refrigerator.

At Garber Metrology, we offer precision calibration services to compare your refrigerator’s readings with industry standards and restore it to the correct operation. Our technicians will use one of our calibrated refrigerator thermometers to test your thermostat’s level of accuracy. We can complete the refrigerator calibration procedure at your facility to reduce your fridge’s downtime and ensure it’s running at the correct temperature.
