How automated calibration can help service companies be more competitive

Service companies that perform calibrations for the process industries operate in a challenging environment. Not only is there a lot of competition, but contracts for customers are based on estimates, meaning that every additional hour of work directly affects the bottom line. Finding and retaining skilled calibration technicians is also a challenge. So, what can service companies do to make their quotations more accurate and ensure work is carried out as consistently and efficiently as possible? The answer is to…

Measurement performance of our new 10-inch VSM — read the app note

For researchers requiring higher applied magnetic fields than our 4- and 7-inch 8600 Series VSMs, we now offer a 10-inch electromagnet version (Model 8610). Providing fields as high as 3.6 T (>36 kOe), it is particularly ideal for characterizing permanent magnet materials, such as rare-earth NdFeB magnets, which typically require large fields to saturate and demagnetize the materials.

Understanding Pressure Calibrator Accuracy Specifications

  Comparing the accuracy specifications of pressure calibrators can be a challenging task because different manufacturers specify accuracy in different ways. This means that you can’t simply compare the numbers given in the specification – you need to understand how these numbers are calculated and what they mean in practice. In this blog post, I look at the different ways pressure calibrator accuracy specifications are presented, explain what they mean, and compare them, as well as take a brief look…

How to avoid safety and compliance issues in fine chemicals

Safety and compliance are non-negotiable in the fine chemicals industry, which produces complex, pure chemical substances such as active pharmaceutical ingredients. Fine chemicals are batch driven, with complicated, multistage processes where accuracy and efficiency are critical. In this industry, one of the keys to ensuring both safety and compliance is that measurements taken throughout the production process are accurate, which can be challenging to say the least with paper-based calibration. Paper-based calibration is time consuming and because it relies on…
