Thermometer Calibration Services

Thermometers provide high-precision temperature measurements that are essential in numerous applications. Common uses include determining whether equipment operates at a safe temperature in manufacturing settings and providing researchers with data needed for testing materials in medical or agricultural contexts. The calibration of thermometers to ensure the accuracy of measurements is essential for this reason.

Calibrating a Thermometer

In general, thermometer calibration involves placing the unit in a temperature-controlled area set by a device known to be accurate. If the thermometer supplies a reading higher or lower than the actual temperature, it must be adjusted to display the correct value. We use highly accurate reference thermometers to determine whether your instrument provides the proper readings. We also record data about the thermometer calibration as it was sent to us and when we sent it back.

Several thermometer types are used regularly in laboratory settings, each with particular calibration requirements.

Here is how to calibrate a thermometer based on its type:

  • Liquid-in-glass: We immerse the thermometer in a stable, known temperature like a liquid calibration bath or a dry-block calibrator to ensure accurate readings.
  • Infrared: Using cavities with well-known emissivity values (blackbodies), we take temperature measurements with the thermometer and a radiometrically calibrated calibrator.
  • Digital: Like liquid-in-glass thermometers, we calibrate these devices using a liquid calibration bath or a dry-block calibrator.

Our Temperature and Humidity Calibration Expertise

We have decades of experience calibrating equipment that measures temperature and humidity, giving us the necessary expertise to ensure your measuring equipment works as it should. We know that calibrating a thermometer requires a delicate process in a controlled environment. We maintain high-tech laboratories and invest in the best equipment to bring to your location for on-site testing.

For temperature calibrations, we heat or cool spaces to a specified temperature, keeping heat sources stable and uniform to facilitate accurate calibration. We also use humidity-controlled chambers for testing hygrometers, creating a stable and unchanging percentage of water vapor in the air.

Partner With Garber Metrology

Our team at Garber Metrology strives to make equipment calibration convenient and precise because we understand that proper measurements make a significant difference. When thermometers display the right temperature, you can monitor equipment to ensure it stays within the ideal range and gage temperatures of other substances like foods or chemical mixtures.

Here are a few ways we adapt our thermometer calibration services to fit your needs:

  • We provide pickup and drop-off for equipment calibration or offer on-site thermometer calibration near you.
  • We offer a rapid turnaround, testing and returning your equipment within five days.
  • We work around the clock to pick up and test equipment, leaving you with shorter wait times.
