This calibration certificate gives an overview of the results obtained during the calibration.
The fluid position in the instrument where the calibrated fluid is available.
Calibration by comparison:
The device under test has been compared with a calibration standard.
Date of the calibration.
The traceability of a calibration
VSL is the National Metrology Institute of The Netherlands. VSL maintains and develops the Dutch measurement standards.
Bronkhorst Calibration Laboratory (BCL):
BCL maintains the measurement standards of Bronkhorst, which are calibrated by VSL.
The calibration standards used in Bronkhorst's production process are calibrated by BCL.
The calibrated instrument.
Is it a Flow meter or flow controller.
Serial number or order number.
Type of instrument (customer model or Bronkhorst model).
The accuracy of this instrument specified under calibration conditions.
The calibration standard wich is used during the calibration (example: Piston Prover, Rotor Meter, Turbine Meter, Reference Meter, etc.)
The calibration device wich is used during the calibration, in this example a piston prover.
Serial number of the calibration device.
The certificate of the calibration device, which certifies the validity of the calibration standard
The reported uncertainty of measurement is based on the standard uncertainty multiplied by a coverage factor k=2.

Calibration and Conversion Results
Calibrated flow AiR:
Fluid and flow point used during calibration.
A calculation from the reference gas flow rate to customer flow rate.
Customer flow** AiR:
The flow range (ordered by customer) converted from the calibrated flow (see:**)
The output signal flow range (ordered by customer) corresponding to the customer flow.
The analog signal is calculated based on the digital signal.
Calculation Customer Flow:
Calibrated flow • Conversion Factor
Measurement uncertainty of the calibrated flow AiR:
Total measurement uncertainty of the calibrated flow, including the calibration standard and the measurement setup.
Maximum measured deviation between the reference flow and the flow indicated by the calibrated instrument over the entire calibrated flow range.
The person who did the calibration.
The date when the certificate was checked.
