Calibration Work Completed & Equipment Used

  • Calibration of multiple probes at the customers site over temperatures ranging from 2 °C to 25 °C.
  • Equipment Used:
    • Portable Europa calibration bath (range -45 °C to 135 °C) with dry block calibrator, to accommodate stub temperature probes.
    • High accuracy calibrated TT10 Thermometer with 2 calibrated reference PRT’s.
    • High accuracy calibrated hygrometer for recording ambient humidity & temperature conditions during calibration process.
  • Completion of uncertainty budgets for the probes calibrated based on probe performance characteristics, environment and data for the equipment used.

Andrew Duxbury, Responsible Person for NVS, said: “Due to the nature of the temperature sensitive products we hold within our warehouses, temperature is an important factor in maintaining the high quality products and services we offer”.

“Knowing the accuracy and drift in the temperature probes that monitor the storage and production environments is essential to meeting our internal needs and our legislative requirements.”

“We also need confidence and knowledge that the monitoring system we are using is working correctly and that alarm notifications are being sent, a performance qualification of the system is essential in supporting these”.
