The Benefits of Calibrating Versus National Standards

For a measurement to be meaningful, the measuring instrument must be calibrated. How can we ensure that all measuring instruments are ultimately being calibrated against the same internationally agreed reference so that measurements from instruments all around the world can be meaningfully compared? What is a multi-step calibration pyramid?

In this video, Colin Lightbody, Principal Consultant at TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, talks about traceable calibration and the benefits of calibrating at TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, the Designated Institute for the UK’s flow measurement standards.

TÜV SÜD operate a world-class range of low uncertainty, traceable reference flow facilities for gases, liquids and multi-phase fluids including the UK primary oil flow measurement standard where we can calibrate instruments to uncertainty as low as 0.03%.
