TruTech Tools offers calibration, minor service, and repair of many Testo and Bacharach combustion analyzers. We also offer a selection of standard replacement parts for self service if desired. Choose our services and experience optimized performance.
*All Testo 310's must go back to Testo for service.
Calibration or verification of calibration is required because even the best portable instrumentation can drift, or lose its calibration over time. Portable instruments are subject to considerable abuse due to rough handling, drops, bumps, temperature swings, over ranging of sensors, chemical exposure and more.
What does TruTech Tools do?
We test your instrument against a known reference value. A known reference value is one that is traceable to N.I.S.T. standards. This can be a reference pressure gauge, reference test gas, reference temperature, or even a reference air velocity in a wind tunnel.
Why is calibration important for field instrumentation?
The answer is simple. Bad measurements lead to bad decisions. Measurements are made in the field to prove proper operation of equipment. Measurements are also made to prove facts that allow technicians to make decisions on how the repair will be made. If you cannot rely on your measurements what is the point of even making them.
Why is calibration important to your company?
To provide a high level of service
To optimize equipment performance
To protect the safety of the consumer and the technician
To minimize call backs
To minimize your exposure
What is the cost and risk of not calibrating?
Bad measurements lead to improper diagnosis and repairs and call backs
Risk of employee safety
Risk of customer/consumer safety.
Loosing certification due to failure to meet specific calibration requirements.
How often do you need to calibrate?
After a period of time, instruments drift and can no longer give accurate measurement results. To resolve this issue, instruments must be calibrated at regular intervals. But how often?
Typically most of the instruments we sell require a verification of calibration and or calibration every 1 to two years depending on the instrument and type of sensors that it uses. The frequency of calibration is often determined by:
Following manufacturer's recommendations
The importance of the measurement
Conformance with quality standard or guidelines (e.g. ISO, BPI, RESNET)
