What is pressure gauge calibration?
The calibration of your pressure gauge or gauges guarantees the accurate readings you need to meet safety and compliance standards, while on the jobsite. Pressure gauge calibration determines that your pressure gauge is working properly, according to the manufacturer’s standards. Pressure gauges are some of the most commonly used instruments and can be found in almost every laboratory. The sheer abundance of pressure gauges in a lab can often lead to the assumption that these gauges are in working order. This is why calibration of these instruments can be easily overlooked. Gauge calibration is essential to ensure the high performance of your instrument and to guarantee the safety of you or your employees.
Why do pressure gauges need calibration?
Pressure gauge calibration is critical for worker safety and is extremely important for product quality control. Errors that arise from using uncalibrated or damaged equipment may result in costly consequences or can even lead to someone getting injured while on the job. Pressure gauge calibration verifies and/or restores the accuracy of your equipment back to proper working conditions. Periodic calibration of your pressure gauge or gauges retains the integrity of the instrument’s readings and guarantees consistent measurements.
While on the job, employees rely on the pressure measurement displayed by pressure gauges to identify potential problems, so it is imperative that these gauges are performing reliably and accurately to ensure quality for these employees and customers. Ensuring that pressure gauges are performing reliably, within reasonable limits of accuracy, is essential for guaranteeing safety while on the job.
How often should pressure gauges be calibrated?
Some industries call for the calibration of your pressure gauge at least once a year. Pressure gauges used in the medical, biotechnology, or food processing industries may need to be calibrated more frequently to ensure proper quality control for products. Many manufacturers have a specific calibration interval for how often a pressure gauge should be calibrated. Pressure gauge calibration is also recommended for if the instrument has experienced some sort of damaging event like an unusual shock or extreme change in environment. New, repaired, and modified pieces of equipment must also be calibrated before use. It is also important to calibrate your instrument if you are unsure of the accuracy of its measurements to determine that it is in proper working conditions.
