Expanding the scope of accreditation

We are proud to announce that have expanded our CLAS accreditation scope by adding new services. Since March 19th, our laboratory is now capable of calibrating instruments for volumetric flow measurement with an accuracy of 0.021% and density calibration services for Coriolis mass flow meters.

Our sustained efforts for the optimization of our gravimetric calibration bench are now rewarded with these high-level accreditations which certify our calibration capabilities.

You will find our detailed scope on the CLAS website via the following link:

Controlled Goods Accreditations

Polycontrols is now registered to the Controlled goods program of Canada.

The CGP’s mandate is to strengthen Canada’s defence trade controls through the mandatory registration and regulation of businesses and individuals who examine, possess and/or transfer controlled goods.

That program allow us to market our patented nanopowder feeder for military and strategic use in order to ensure the national security.

Polycontrols laboratory renew their ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation

Quality & Innovation

Polycontrols flow calibration laboratory is pleased to announce that they have successfully renewed their ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation and, in addition to the capabilities already accredited, this renewal was an opportunity to increase it’s scope of accreditation for the calibration of liquid flow up to 300 gpm.

‘The increase in our scope of accreditation is an outstanding success! It was made possible by the continued dedication of our entire team. We developed three new high precision gravimetric flow calibration benches that allow us to certify Coriolis flow meters up to 3 inches. Our ISO/IEC 17025 will continue to nurture, sustain and verify our commitment to quality and technical expertise in all areas of the flow calibration.’ says Roger Desaulniers, President of Polycontrols Technologies.

The ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation ensures all customers will continue to receive high quality flow meter calibration services with the added confidence that all aspects of our quality system are implemented concisely and rigorously. Each part of the flow meter calibration process is proven to be suitable and compatible to provide accurate and reliable results.

ISO/IEC 17025 is the main standard used by testing and calibration laboratories and includes management requirements that are related to the operation and effectiveness of the quality management system within the laboratory as well as technical requirements that include factors which determine the correctness and reliability of the tests and/or calibrations performed at the laboratory.

New Web Portal Launched for flow meter Calibration

Polycontrols is pleased to announce the launch of a new secure portal dedicated to the flow meter calibration!

This new site is a unique tool that provides in one place all relevant information related to flow meter calibrations and monitors in real time the evolution of the flow meter calibration work carried out at Polycontrols.

The calibration history for each flow meter, the status of calibration in progress, electronic copies of calibration reports and workflow of each calibration request are presented in order to get an overall view of all the essential information related to flow meter calibration including order tracking.
