Gas flow meter / controller calibrations and adjustments

All Bronkhorst instruments are factory calibrated using highly accurate calibration devices, traceable to (inter)national standards. In addition, accredited calibrations may be required for various reasons, e.g. to meet specific demands from authorities, or for instruments that will be used as reference standards. Based on many years of calibration experience in the field of mass flow and volume flow gas calibration (Bronkhorst has been active in this field since its founding in 1981), the company established a calibration laboratory. It was first accredited in 2010 for gas flow calibration services, including adjustments, can be offered in the range of 0.15 mln/min up to 6200 ln/min for both new and existing Bronkhorst gas flow meters / controllers and gas flow calibration devices. In addition the calibration centre can also perform gas flow calibrations for volumetric type of flow meters and other brands of mass flow meters/controllers.

Liquid flow and Pressure calibrations

In 2014 the Bronkhorst Calibration Centre moved to a new location, offering space for the extension of its services. In 2015 this resulted in the certification an extended scope, offering liquid flow calibrations for Bronkhorst mini CORI-FLOW (Coriolis) mass flow meters / controllers in the range of 1-200 g/h and pressure calibrations from 25 mbar up to 400 bar for Bronkhorst EL-PRESS pressure meters / controllers.
