The extreme conditions found in industrial and manufacturing processes should be no deterrent to accurate temperature measurement.

Smelting is a core part of producing the metal alloys found in commercial products worldwide, while heat moulding and sealing are essential in shaping plastic consumer goods. These processes rely on intense heat generation of up to 500 degrees Celsius to function. However, conditions also need to be monitored and controlled to ensure an ideal environment for production.

That’s why temperature measurement instruments need to work to peak accuracy in even the most extreme conditions. Temperature calibration for measurement instruments is crucial in heavy industry and manufacturing applications.

Alloys are a combination of multiple materials that form a new metal compound. Base elements are chosen for characteristics such as low density or high tensile levels and combined in precise ratios. Producing complex and resilient metal alloys used in every facet of modern life isn’t a simple process. The precise combination of the two or more base elements to forge these important alloys requires accurate heating to the degree – any variation can compromise an alloy’s physical structure and functionality.

Assessing how accurate your temperature checks are is therefore integral to producing high-quality products.

SmeltingSmelting to produce metal alloys requires precise temperatures and environmental conditions to blend base elements accurately.

Industrial measurement instruments are exposed to extreme conditions day-in, day-out, and even the most robust technology can quickly become compromised. Regular calibration of temperature measurement technologies ensures that technicians alleviate issues before they become too difficult manage.

A proactive maintenance schedule for all industrial temperature measurement solutions ensures that minor problems don’t develop into anything more than that. But how can operators develop a servicing roster if they have no idea how accurately their instruments are working compared to well-tested standards?

Reducing maintenance time as and when a piece of equipment stops working isn’t cost-effective – downtime is a significant expense in both time, operational costs and worker inactivity. Calibrating temperature measurement solutions ensures they are working accurately and gives operators a better idea about when a logger needs maintenance.

Testo's high temperature calibration servicesTesto’s high temperature calibration services are offered onsite to all Victoria customers.

One crucial factor when testing temperature parameters is being able to reproduce results accurately. If technicians are unable to record the same data readings in controlled testing conditions, then there may be an issue with the temperature monitoring solution used. This inaccuracy can be costly at production level.

Calibrating these instruments allows technicians to perform multiple readings safe in the knowledge that their information is close to the ‘true’ value of what is being measured. It also means they can assess the precision of their datasets, generating important insights into operations.
