We offer a full range of pressure and vacuum calibration services to ensure your gauges perform well in industrial, medical, and scientific applications. Calibration is a process whereby technicians compare measurements taken from gauges in your facility against those from factory-standard gauges with known accuracy.
Routine calibration ensures that your gauges are up to standard and within allowable tolerances. Regularly calibrating your equipment also results in improved workplace and employee safety along with better machine performance.
At Garber Metrology, all our services are:
- ISO 9001 registered.
- ISO-IEC 17025 accredited.
- ANSI/NCSL Z540-1 compliant.
Adhering to these standards results in reliable systems and safe employees. In addition, we issue a Certificate of Calibration at the end of each completed job, and all certificates are traceable to the NIST.
Pressure Calibration Services
Pressure gauges appear in factories, laboratories, and the field. Their high prevalence makes it easy to delay or overlook needed repairs, which can lead to equipment failure.
Several factors can cause a pressure gauge to fail, including:
- Pressure spikes.
While some of these factors are endemic to a given application, others can be mitigated or corrected by trained technicians.
At Garber, we can calibrate equipment that handles up to 20,000 psi. We offer calibration services both on-site and in-house in our calibration lab, and we offer regional pickup and delivery for in-house projects. We perform most jobs within five working days from the time we receive your gauge.
How Often Do You Need Pressure Gauge Calibration?
Although determining a proper calibration test schedule depends on many factors, most gauges require more maintenance as frequency and intensity of use rise.
How do you know when to have your pressure gauge calibrated? These steps may be helpful in deciding whether it’s time to schedule a calibration test:
- Check the manufacturer’s recommended calibration interval: Equipment comes with a general estimate on how often it needs testing based on that tool’s application. If you use your pressure gauges for more critical measurements, you may need to have more frequent calibrations.
- Plan calibration before and after a significant critical measurement project: If you have a major project coming up, send your gauges for calibration before using them on the job. Once finished, have them recalibrated again. Getting the same results after the test ensures your measurements are reliable.
- Schedule a test after the instrument is damaged: Sometimes your pressure gauges may not show signs of damage after impact or overload. Still, internal components may not function as intended, skewing your measurements.
- Calibrate when customer or industry standards dictate: Depending on your industry and operations, you may need to have calibrated, certified pressure gauges for taking measurements. If your client doesn’t explicitly state this parameter, check with your industry’s guidelines.
Does Your Company Need to Calibrate Its Pressure Gauges?
If your company takes critical measurements, you must schedule time for calibration of your pressure gauges. Your business owns this equipment to take precise measurements of your products. Without reliable results, you risk sending out goods that fall short of customer expectations. Recalling and remaking those items increases production costs and impacts your brand’s reputation.
Garber Metrology is an expert in calibration, and our team can test pressure gauges for clients in various fields. We’ve carried out calibration tests in many industries, including:
- Food processing plants.
- Petrochemical plants.
- Oil refineries.
- Scientific applications both in labs and in the field.
