Measuring instrument and calibration

HIGHEST MEASURING ACCURACY FOR MEASURING INSTRUMENTS

Manufacturing of refrigerating systemsAs a manufacturer or operator, do you consider the measuring accuracy of your measuring instruments to be paramount in your design, production and operation processes? Do you also regard criteria such as quality, functionality, safety, reliability and environmental aspects as imperative? Whatever your focus, we offer bespoke services for your individual needs.

Our experts support you with qualification testing and type examination of detectors, leak test systems and exhaust analysers, taking currently applicable national and European regulations into account.

We also assist you with the calibration of temperature measuring instruments and pressure gauges to ensure your products meet the required product criteria.

Calibration guarantees that measurement and monitoring equipment operates within the defined range of accuracy. It compares measurement and monitoring equipment with the reference standards of the German Calibration Service (Deutscher Kalibrierdienst, D-K-14153-01-00), which are based on the national standards of the German National Metrology Institute (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, PTB).

Our calibration laboratory holds DAkkS accreditation in accordance with EN ISO/IEC 17025. This accreditation applies exclusively to the scope defined in the Appendix to the accreditation certificate D-K-14153-01-00.

Based on a multilateral agreement concluded between the EA (European Cooperation for Accreditation) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), the calibration certificates issued by TÜV SÜD are recognised in most European countries and in several non-European countries.
