SITRA Calibration Services (Click here for List of Testing Charges)
The awareness on quality of products and services has grown manifold over the years on the industrial front as well as on the domestic front. The demand for quality products has increased to a great extent in spite of the higher cost, since a quality product scores over a cheaper competitor in the long run.
To continuously monitor the quality parameters right from raw material to delivery of the finished goods, an assortment of instruments are used by the industry. These instruments have to be accurate enough to measure the quality parameters of the materials or the tools and devices. In many instances these instruments are used routinely without taking into consideration the errors present in the instruments.
The accuracy of the instruments used in the organization should be periodically checked against a standard equipment to ascertain whether the deviations or errors in the instrument are within specified tolerances.
Necessity for Calibration of instruments
Like all other equipment, Measurement and Test Equipment are not ideal since they have inherent error elements. The Measurement and Test Equipment cannot caution the user as to when the instrument is operating out of its specified tolerance levels. Only a major malfunction is visible to the user and only a technically well-equipped calibration facility can determine the actual performance of the instrument and the associated deviations in the Measurement and Test Equipment.
The amount of error in an instrument can be determined by calibrating the instrument periodically. Calibration is the process of comparing the instrument under consideration with a standard reference equipment having Traceability to National or International Standards. Calibration of an instrument throws light on the quantum of error present in the instrument and its suitability for usage in the quality system. Depending upon the quantum of error, the instrument is set right by adjusting necessary settings and fine-tuning the instrument. If the quantum of error goes beyond standard tolerance levels, then the instrument should be prohibited from usage until the error is rectified and the deviations are minimized to tolerable limits.
SITRA has been offering calibration services for textile testing & measuring instruments for the past decade and half. Calibration services are offered for instruments and testing machines used in spinning, knitting, processing and garmenting industries.
Many textile mills in Coimbatore, Tirupur, Salem, and neighboring states have been regularly availing SITRA’s calibration services for a variety of instruments. SITRA calibration certificates are accepted by ISO 9000, ISO 14000 certifying authorities. A certificate of membership has been presented to SITRA by the `National Conference of Standard Laboratories’, Colorado, USA.
