Depending on your industry, your application, and the environment in which your meter operates, you may require flow meter calibration and maintenance more, or less, frequently than others. While calibration drift can be caused by many factors such as the flow meter type and the environment in which it operates.

Here are some of the most common reasons for calibration to drift; some of which you can avoid, others that you can’t. For those that can’t be avoided, you will want to send your flow meter in for calibration.

When your flow meter calibration and performance does shift, it is important to make sure you take the necessary actions to correct the problem. This may mean adjusting your processes or, for a more reliable solution, sending the meter out for re-calibration by an accredited lab.
