Calibrations & Validation
At Genesis we assure your instruments with precision.
Genesis has a state-of-the-art metrology laboratory to calibrate industrial equipment. We undertake calibration in Mass, Pressure, Force, Length, Temperature, and Electrical resistance, electro technical parameter. The calibration of measuring equipment by the Genesis provides traceability to the International System of Units (SI).
The term Calibration:Wear and tear is a natural phenomenon and industrial equipment, which deteriorate, are no exception to it. Unfortunately as measuring equipment deteriorate, they start to become unreliable and in some cases can even give inaccurate results. Calibration is simply “the comparison of the readings of an instrument against that of a standard of known accuracy”. It is a scientific process used to measure deviation of the display value from the actual value. Calibration is used to determine any deviation or drift in a measuring instrument. Drift can exist in all machines/equipment, and even new equipment can have “drift”.
Calibration of measuring equipment or working standard enables the user to take note of the deviations and errors from the nominal values so that corrections (adjustments) can be made to minimize the errors during measurement. A well-calibrated instrument provides the confidence to the user as well as the consumer that the service or the product meets the required specifications and ensures the acceptance in international market.
So it is important to identify drift and perform calibration.The importance of calibration depends on the intended use of the measuring equipment. Calibration becomes critical when the safety of human being is at stake, or when the survival of a company is put in question.
Traceability of measurementThe International Vocabulary of Basic and General Terms in Metrology (VIM) defines traceability as: “Property of the result of a measurement or the value of a standard whereby it can be related to stated references, usually national or international standards, through an unbroken chain of comparisons all having stated uncertainties."
All measurements made in a country have to be traceable to international measurement standards. To achieve this, measuring instruments used by trade and industry are calibrated at regular intervals against appropriate standards, which are themselves calibrated to higher national standards, traceable to international measurement standards.
In simple words, a kilogram of rice purchased in one country should have the same amount of rice as one kilogram purchased anywhere in the world.
