Calibration & Pressure Testing Services

Why Nikham Energy?? We calibrate and pressure test all instrumentation from pressure indicators, gauges, transmitters, manometers, temperature gauges, thermometers, thermocouples, ovens, furnaces, mass balances, and scales to mass pieces/weights.

Calibration is crucial because it supports accurate measurements, and precise measurements are the foundation of quality, safety, and innovation. Our team’s equipment is designed to be hand-carried onboard 90% of the time.

But what is Calibration exactly?

The purpose of calibrating measuring instruments is twofold. Firstly, to assess the accuracy of the instrument. Secondly, to determine the traceability of the measurement.

In real-life applications, it also includes repairing the device if it is Calibrated incorrectly. Reports are generated and provided by our experts, showing the measurement error with the measuring device before and after the calibration test is performed.

The Importance of Calibration

Calibration defines the accuracy and quality of measurements recorded by using a piece of equipment. The accuracy of results is prone to variations over time, especially when using technologies or measuring parameters such as temperature and humidity. These variations are commonly known as “drift”; even the highest quality instruments are subject to drift over time, resulting in inaccurate measurements and substandard performance.

There is an ongoing need to maintain the Calibration of operational equipment and trust the results measured. To guarantee reliable, accurate, and repeatable measurements, these tests must be performed throughout their lifetime.

By ensuring test equipment’s accuracy, calibrations aim to minimise any unpredictability. Calibration quantifies and controls errors or uncertainties within measurement processes to an acceptable level.

In summary, Calibration is vitally important wherever measurements are essential, it enables users and businesses to have confidence in the results they monitor, record, and subsequently control.

When to Calibrate

Based on the history of previous calibration results, intervals are specified by the manufacturer. In addition, Calibration is often required for new instruments or when an instrument may have been subjected to an unexpected shock or vibration that may have shifted it out of its specified limits.
