To verify that your primary standard has not been compromised by inadvertent damage, environmental factors, or time and use, Mesa recommends annual service and calibration of your DryCal primary gas flow standard.

Traceable Calibrations and Reference Standards

Here in the USA, most literature for flow instrumentation and/or instrumentation calibration services includes a statement explaining that the device’s calibration is NIST-traceable. Other countries may see similar statements such as PTB-traceable, or INMETRO-traceable calibrations. Such statements are an important part of meeting performance goals, but are not necessarily clear on how such traceability impacts…
