About on site calibration
There are multiple occasions when a calibration must be performed at the customer’s premises and not at a calibration laboratory. There is equipment that is to large and fixed and cannot be moved. Scales, cranes, large containers, big ovens and refrigerators are some examples of such equipment that is impossible to be removed and sent for calibration. This kind of equipment must be calibrated on site, and that’s what JBA Calibration Services are here for.
There are also other instruments which are part of an installation and they must be calibrated as a whole where they may be part of an industrial process such as temperature and pressure transmitters, pressure gauges and flow transmitters and gauges. In industry, there are sensors and transmitters which are observed and controllers or PLC. There are also instruments that are very sensitive and their transportation to and from the calibration laboratory may cause damage.
A large industry possessing many instruments that need calibration can call a mobile calibration laboratory or a laboratory with an onsite service to calibrate them. There are many benefits from onsite calibrations. Some of these are:
- The calibration time is reduced and the time of a possible production shut down is minimized or even eliminated
- Eliminates shipping costs
- Avoiding possible damages and malfunctions due to mishandling during transportation
- Calibration of the equipment within the environmental conditions where they are normally used
- We can do it wherever and whenever you need
- Short downtime
In order to better understand what the onsite and mobile calibration laboratories are, let’s see how they are described by their definitions:
Mobile Calibration Laboratory
Fully equipped, self-contained, transportable calibration laboratory capable of performing calibrations under controlled environmental conditions. A mobile laboratory may be a main or branch laboratory and is subject to the same accreditation requirements. Usually a mobile laboratory is a fully equipped and climate controlled vehicle.
Onsite Calibration Laboratory
An operation that is based in and/or directly supported by an established calibration laboratory facility, but that actually performs calibrations at customer locations. Onsite calibrations don’t have fixed premises but they usually take place in rooms or other places provided by the customer for the calibration technicians.
