Why calibrate?

Correct and reliable measurements are the prerequisites for any high-quality industrial production. Measuring and testing equipment is used, among other things, for the quantitative determination of properties as well as for controlling, regulating and automating production. Measurements are therefore an important part of industrial quality assurance, see also DIN EN ISO 9000 and 9001.

All equipment used for measurements, including equipment for auxiliary measurements, e.g. for ambient conditions, and having a significant influence on the accuracy and validity of the result of the test or sampling, must be calibrated before it is put into operation.

SIKA has been a member of the German Calibration Service (DKD) since 1995 and is accredited according to DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025. For over 25 years, we have actively contributed our experience to working groups and regularly participate in intercomparisons.

How often should I have my measuring equipment calibrated?

The frequency of calibration depends on the balance between risk and costs. The shorter the time between calibrations, the lower the risk of questionable measurements. We recommend having measuring instruments calibrated annually.

Temperature calibration service

The temperature laboratory is accredited for temperatures from -30 °C to 1300 °C. Thermocouples, indicating temperature measuring and test instruments, as well as temperature block calibrators can be calibrated within this measuring range. Resistance thermometers can be calibrated between -30 °C and 960 °C. The basis of each calibration is the international temperature scale of “ITS-90”.

Measurements are executed in accordance with DAkkS calibration guidelines of the German national metrology institute (PTB) for temperatures close to defined fixed points. This ensures the best possible determination of the temperature characteristic curve. If desired, other temperature values (e.g. from real operational areas) can be included in the calibration.

Pressure calibration service

The calibration laboratory for “absolute pressure and positive overpressure” allows the calibration of analogue and digital pressure measuring devices and pressure sensors with an electrical output signal (e. g. 0...10 V, 4...20 mA, ...).

Calibration is carried out as a comparison measurement against a dead weight tester utilised as the reference standard. The dead weight tester is used to pressurise the instrument under test with a defined pressure from 1...1200 bar. Depending on the actual measuring range, the smallest possible measuring uncertainties are 0.7 mbar.

Electric values calibration service

Resistors and ohmmeters can be calibrated from 0 to 2 kΩ. Depending on the resistance value, the smallest possible measuring uncertainty is 0.1 mΩ. DC voltmeters and transmitters can be calibrated between 0 and 20 VDC with a smallest possible measuring uncertainty of 2 μV. DC testing and measuring devices for standard signals (0)4...20 mA can be calibrated with a smallest possible measuring uncertainty of 0.05 μA.

Marine recalibration service points

Calibration devices have to be re-calibrated on an annual base or more often. Located in the main harbours of the world, our international Marine recalibration service points will be glad to come on board of your ship and to recalibrate you calibrators on site.
