AMETEK Land Instruments, based in Sheffield, is celebrating the 45th anniversary of its UKAS accredited infrared temperature calibration laboratory. It was the first UKAS laboratory to be accredited, back in 1970, for the issue of calibration certificates for thermal measurements and also the first to be accredited for the issue of certificates that met the requirements of ISO 17025 (calibration of equipment).
Over the past four and a half decades, the laboratory has provided temperature calibration services for industries ranging from automotive to glass, steel, aerospace, defence and food.
The lab carries out the traceable calibration of radiation thermometers over the range –10°C up to 2500°C and has the certified lowest calibration uncertainty outside the National Physics Laboratory for temperatures above 500°C.
The laboratory also provides a calibration and re-calibration reminder service for temperature sensors and sources including non-contact infrared pyrometers, thermal imagers and blackbodies.
