Why book a Hirst Gaussmeter calibration?
Gaussmeter calibration is essential to keeping our sensitive measuring equipment accurate. We do so by comparing the instrument to a standard or higher accuracy. We then detect and correct any deviance from the true reading.
For Hirst Gaussmeters, we advise a recalibration every 12 months as best practice, for valid traceability. Whilst other companies can offer calibration for Hirst equipment, only Hirst can correct deviations from true readings.
It is important to ensure your Gaussmeter is giving true readings in order to:
- Maintain quality control
- Comply with industry specific regulations and laws
- Maintain national and international standards
All calibrations carried out at Hirst Magnetic Instruments are traceable to our in-house equipment, which themselves are calibrated by National Physical Laboratory (NPL) using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) technology. Once completed, all calibrations come with a new calibration certificate valid for 12 months. UKAS calibrations are available on request.
How to book your calibration:
Due to Brexit and the increasingly specific requirements for documenting items returning to the UK, Hirst have updated our processes and no-longer take calibration orders online - All calibrations are managed via direct enquiry now. This ensures we can better support customers to ensure all paperwork is filled out correctly throughout the process.
