Endress+Hauser’s wet flow calibration rig, based at the company’s UK headquarters in Manchester, has been awarded UKAS accreditation. UKAS ensures that companies meet the requirements of ISO 17025, the international standard for testing and calibration laboratories. The rigorous auditing process tests the quality and method of the calibration as well as the competency of technicians carrying out the work, the process of creating and storing documentation and the traceability of reference standards.
"It’s a trust issue," explained Mohsin Patel, Internal Repair and Calibration Team Leader. "Because we’re UKAS accredited, customers can trust us and know that we provide a quality service. It means they can rely on the accuracy of their flowmeters, which is vital for quality-critical applications in the life sciences, oil & gas and food & beverage sectors."
Endress+Hauser said it aims to become the number one calibration provider in the UK. "Compared to the other accredited calibration laboratories in the UK, we are competitive on price and offer a better turnaround," said Mohsin Patel.
