Thermocouple Calibration Service

Thermocouples are advanced measurement instruments that detect slight temperature changes. Accuracy is necessary for thermocouples to work properly in sensitive applications, as erroneous readings could impact overall testing.

Thermocouples can deteriorate from being continually subject to varying temperatures. Calibration is a necessary service to restore these sensors to their optimal performance.

Garber Metrology is a thermocouple calibration specialist with decades of experience. We can calibrate your thermocouple instruments for accurate performance and compliance with industry standards.

Calibrating a Thermocouple

Thermocouples are robust instruments since they must withstand a wide range of temperatures. The thermocouple produces a voltage when it detects a temperature change, and this voltage is measured. Calibration ensures the thermocouple can accurately identify an increase or decrease in temperature, ensuring the measured results are accurate.

Thermocouples should be calibrated yearly, with more frequent use requiring more regular calibration.

You may consider calibrating your thermocouple if:

  • Its performance does not meet your expectations.
  • Mechanical forces have damaged the thermocouple.
  • You can see an open circuit.
  • The instrument has low electrical isolation from the housing or sheath.
  • It was subjected to unusual operating conditions.

Humidity and Temperature Calibration Expertise With Garber Metrology

Garber Metrology offers professional thermocouple calibration services for clients in the mid-Atlantic region. We understand the calibration process is delicate and have the controlled environment and years of experience needed for proper calibration.

Our thermocouple calibration service involves comparing the thermocouple’s measurement against a known reference. Our technicians do this by cooling or heating the thermocouple to a known temperature using a physical, uniform source. The thermocouple’s output is read to determine if its measurement is correct. If it’s not, we adjust the thermocouple accordingly.
