"You ask a measuring system for the facts - not it's opinion"
-Pete Stein, Stein Engineering
Calibration – will answer this question for you! Calibration is the comparison of a measurement device (Transducer) against a standard. A calibration is performed to determine how far the device is from the standard. A calibration is performed on all the system components.
It is extremely important to calibrate and maintain solid dosage equipment to maximize the value of your investment. To keep these systems and products operating correctly and at their most efficient, they require regular, expert calibration and maintenance.
Traditionally an in-house department performed these services. However, the high standard of maintenance required on increasingly complex products and systems has proved difficult and expensive. As a result, more and more companies are delegating their calibration and maintenance to outside experts.
SMI will tailor an annual calibration and maintenance contract based on your individual needs and requirements.
- Availability of a fully trained staff is guaranteed
- System upgrading is at preferential rates
- Routine preventative maintenance
- Access to specialists with experience in instrumentation
- Recurrent Training
Compliance levels may need to be maintained and demonstrated as an important part of compliance with GMP. Instrumentation must be calibrated regularly by qualified personnel, using test instruments with a fully traceable calibration.
The maximum benefits are achieved through long-term co-operative relationships where SMI personnel are familiar with your installation, applications, processes and scientists. We will provide reports on what has been done, what will need to be done in the future and a time frame for completion.
