Calibration

Helium Leak Detector Calibration

Vacuum Precision offers calibrated helium leaks of various designs covering the range between 10-9 to 10-4 mbar l/s as part of the standard range of products. All leak rates are traceable to the standards of the German Calibration Services controlled by the PTB. If requested each helium leak can be supplied with a calibration certificate issued by the German Calibration Services.

On site or off site leak detector calibrations are run with standards, which have not been calibrated at the PTB; instead the transfer standards of the DKD calibration services are used. Therefore traceability to national standards is ensured.

NIST Calibration is available upon request.

Vacuum Gauge Calibration

Vacuum Precision offers calibration services for vacuum gauges. A DKD calibration certificate or a factory calibration certificate can be issued. Calibration to other standards are available upon request.

The German Calibration service (DKD) ensures trace ability of industrial measurements and testing to national calibration standards. It is run jointly by the Federal Institution for Physics and technology (PTB), the industry, the Federal Minister for Economics and the Western European Metrology Club (WEMC). The transfer standards employed in the DKD calibration facility are checked regularly by the PTB.

Factory Calibrations are run with standards, which have not been calibrated at the PTB; instead the transfer standards of the DKD calibration service are used, Therefore traceability to national standards are ensured in both cases.
