Flow meters: to calibrate or not?

Depending on the configuration of your process and how important that specific measure is for your performance, some flow meters should be calibrated whereas others can be left uncalibrated. Usually, flow meters part of a secondary loop system are redundant as any drift in the measure will be corrected by the action of a primary […]

Why using Guardbanding Technique?

The primary motivation for guardbanding is to control the risk of accepting an out-of-tolerance unit or rejecting an in-tolerance unit. The ISO 17025 standard requires that measurement uncertainty be taken into account when statements of compliance are made. In other words, when a calibration laboratory calibrates an instrument and produces a calibration certificate indicating that […]
