What Is It

Whether it is the life science sector, the food industry, the energy sector, or any other industry that regularly performs measurements, your organization will be required to meet the accuracy ratios set forth by national or international standards organizations. What are some of the common types of instruments that require calibration?

  • Temperature measurement: water loops in the pharmaceutical sector, fridge probes or fermenters in the food or pharmaceutical sectors, room temperatures in cleanrooms

  • Pressure measurement: freeze-dryer, autoclave, water loops, differential pressures of premises

  • Level measurement: level of tanks, fermenters, cleaning in place stations

  • Flow measurements: mainly concern water loops

  • Weighing: production scales, pallet trucks, laboratory scales, analytical scales, load cells

  • Speed ​​measurements: concern over the speed of rotation of centrifuges, or even the speed of agitation of tanks

Why It Matters

A primary objective of calibration is to ensure accurate and reliable measurements in equipment and to remove any variability associated with required testing.

As an example, manufacturers’ alarms and systems that are not routinely calibrated could yield unreliable information on the operating equipment putting workers at risk, the environment exposed, and poor production quality. The associated risks could be highly costly to an organization as heavy fines could be levied, and loss of customer loyalty to name a few.

How We Can Help

With a very large fleet of equipment and its laboratory, Mecotec uses its tools and prepares them in its laboratory with immediate availability. How often should the measuring instruments and equipment be calibrated? While it varies, the typical frequency is six months to one year.

Services include:

  • Calibration and Qualification

    • Our experts use a standard instrument to compare its results with your measuring instruments and to determine the veracity of their measurements.

    • Ensure the compliance of your equipment and clean rooms thanks to the intervention of our experts and their meticulous analysis.

  • Factory 4.0 technology using IIoT TileConnect 4.0 analyzes your production lines, detects any problems, and increases your productivity.

Key Benefits

Below are some typical outcomes customers can expect with calibration and qualification services:

  • Improved Safety. Any inaccuracies of instruments, when used in controlled rooms, can result in an increase in safety hazards

  • Instrument Longevity. Keeping your instruments in good, like new working condition helps maintain their accuracy

  • Cost Savings. False failures can increase manufacturing costs for rework or repairs

  • Veracity of the measurement taken by the instruments

  • Less Downtime for Repair. Allows the instrument to be adjusted if the measurements do not match the standard used

  • Compliance to standards (FDA, UE, ISO, PIC, GMP, EUDRALEX, etc.) defined by each client according to their sector of activity
