Calibration

Over the course of a flow meters lifetime it is recommended to be calibrated at regular intervals to maintain best accuracy. Without re-calibration, the accuracy of the meter can drift resulting in poor repeatability measurements and general under-performance which could affect your process and product quality.

The iCenta calibration service helps you maintain your standards. On receipt of your flow meter, we evaluate the condition (inspecting the equipment for visible signs of damage to rotor sensors, electrodes and electronics), measure the flow rate of the instrument, compile a report and provide a quotation to calibrate and if necessary adjust and repair the instrument. The instrument is returned with a calibration / test report with your choice of measurement points normally 3-10 with several repeats.

Our small volume prover (SVP 250) is capable of measuring a variety of liquid viscosities from 0.6 – 100 m²/s (Cst) with flow ranges from 12 ml/min to 1500 l/min with a typical 0.04% accuracy. The SVP can measure several fluids (but not limited to):

  • Water
  • Synthetic and non-synthetic oils
  • Alcohol
  • Hydrocarbons
  • Biofuels
  • Methanol

For high flow ranges of water/conductive fluids we are able to offer our gravimetric flow calibrator up to flow ranges circa 300 m³/hr.

The liquid calibration range we offer is:

  • Rig A: 12 ml/min – 1200 l/min (liquids: water, oils and hydrocarbons to 100 centistokes ± 0.08% RD (Est.)
  • Rig B: 0.5 l/min – 30 l/min (liquids: water ± 0.15% RD)
  • Rig C: 2 m³/hr – 270 m³/hr (liquids: water)

All re-calibrated instrumentation will be returned complete with a new calibration certificate (see example).

Calibration/performance checking can also be carried out on-site. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

A 24-hour Emergency calibration is also available.
