    WHAT IS AN MKS VACUUM GAUGE?

    Capacitance manometers are a type of electro-mechanical gauge that are the ideal choice when measuring both pressure and vacuum. The MKS Baratron capacitance manometers measure true pressure and they are insensitive to the type of gas being measured. The Baratron capacitance manometers are known for being highly accurate and reliable, along with having an easy

    WHAT IS NIST CALIBRATION

    NIST calibration, and NIST calibration alone, can ensure the traceability of an instrument’s indications. Only NIST calibration can calibrate or repair an instrument with services that trace back to the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Wikipedia gives the formal definition of “traceability” as “the ability to chronologically interrelate uniquely identifiable entities in a way

    THE IMPORTANCE OF TOOL CALIBRATION

    Tool calibration is important to any industry or individual who may frequently use tools or instruments in their line of work. Over time, tools lose their ability to display accurate results. As W.B. Yeats once said, “things fall apart,” and service equipment is not void from this entropic rule. Tool calibration is the only way to

    IS IN-HOUSE CALIBRATION A MISTAKE?

    Companies that require calibration services on their tools and equipment must choose in house calibration could be a mistakefrom two main delivery methods. These are “in-house calibration,” where the company itself provides the calibration, and “external calibration,” where the company outsources the work to a calibration lab; preferably one that is reputable and accredited. Although
