LOAD CELL CALIBRATION

LOAD CELL CALIBRATION :

Load Cell calibration services are provided by NorthLab to customers in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific Region.

Load Cells are highly accurate transducers which provide the user with information not generally obtainable by other technology due to commercial factors. Load Cells are designed to sense force or weight under a wide range of adverse conditions; they are not only the most essential part of an electronic weighing system, but also the most vulnerable.

Load Cells are widely used in many industries like Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Petrochemical, Automotive, Marine, etc. Though used for many applications, the most common use of Load Cells is for testing the capacities of lifting equipment. It is also used for the testing and/or calibration of weighing scales, weighing balances and other force measuring devices.The use of Load Cells in these various industries for critical applications therefore make it imperative that they are properly calibrated at regular intervals to national or international standards by a calibration agency that one can trust.

NorthLab has developed the capability to perform Load Cell calibration in response to an expressed demand from our customers. This is in line with NorthLab’s reputation in the industry as a “one-stop” service provider with the ability to meet most (if not all) of our customers’ requirements in the eld of calibration and measurement.

The infrastructure developed for the provision of this service is state-of-the-art and is proven to have the ability to provide highly accurate results. To perform this calibration, NorthLab uses highly versatile calibrating machines that gives us the ability to perform both tension and compression calibrations. The major sources of error in mechanical force calibration are friction and non-axial loading. The entire design of the machines used by NorthLab has a single focused purpose – ULTIMATE ACCURACY. Any friction between the unit being tested and the calibration standard is completely eliminated in the design and construction of the machine. Together with its adaptors and other accessories, the machine also eliminates any form of non-axial loading. These factors contribute to its highly accurate performance in calibrating Load Cells.

Since Load Cell calibration performed at NorthLab is in accordance with international standards such as ASTM E74, ISO 376 & other industrial standards, statutory and regulatory requirements, our customers can rest assured that they are receiving the best possible solutions for their requirements.
