Benefits of ordering a calibration report with your New Instrument from Pacific Test Equipment

Many customers require their instrument to have a current calibration report. Some customers buy new instruments and on delivery look for a laboratory to provide a calibration report. This means placing two orders on different suppliers and missing out on the economies of having your instrument delivered complete with calibration. It makes economic sense to purchase your instrumnet from Pacific test Equipment complete with a traceable calibration report which we offer at a reduced rate.

Why Calibrate?

Calibration is the process of checking your instrument against a reference standard and identifying if it is within the specification of the manufacturer. It is important that the reference standard has a significantly higher accuracy than the tested instrument and that the reference standard is regularly checked by a NATA laboratory to confirm that it too is within its manufacturer’s specification. If your instrument is found to be out specification, then it becomes a service to return it to calibration. The service (or repair) can range from a simple adjustment either mechanically or more commonly by firmware to a significant repair requiring replacement of parts. You can understand that returning an out-of-specification instrument to within specification can range from a modest to a substantial cost, depending on the brand, model and type of instrument. At Pacific Test Equipment we always contact you with a quotation if we find your instrument is out of specification before embarking on any corrective work. This means that you can decide whether to proceed with the work or whether it is uneconomical to do so.
