Why Calibrate Regularly?
Calibration provides certainty, security, and confidence in the measurement results you attain with your radiation detection instrument. Annual service and calibration ensure the continued proper performance of the instrument.
Accuracy and compliance with legal standards is extremely important. Furthermore, downtime is expensive. Damaged, malfunctioning, or out-of-calibration instruments can be costly. Bear in mind the difference between planned downtime for maintenance and unplanned downtime for repairs.
Ludlum Measurements, Inc. offers one-stop calibration for most instruments, including neutron detection, and instruments produced by other manufacturers. Calibration contracts for both new instruments and instruments already in use are available. Special handling outside of standard calibration can be accommodated as well.
What Our Contracts Include
- As-Found Readings
- Two Points per Range
- One Detector
- NIST Traceability
- ANSI N323 Compliance
- One Calibration Every 12 Months
- Priority Handling
