Calibration

DLA Scientific Ltd boasts of well trained, competent and certified personnel to ensure integrity of your instruments. All this is done in an up to standard calibration laboratory equipped with current technologies and standards. We are also at hand to perform on-site calibration depending on your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Calibration?

  • A calibration is a procedure in which an instrument is tested to make sure it conforms to a recognized standard and is used to verify the accuracy of an instrument.
  • It is the process of checking, by comparison with a standard, the accuracy of a measuring instrument and provides accurate corrections which can be applied to the readings obtained in use.

Why should I calibrate my instrument?

  • By comparing an instrument of a known value against a second instrument (unit under test), the difference can be calculated and suitable corrections determined.
  • A calibration provides the user with confidence that the instrument they are using works correctly.
  • Without periodic calibration, an instrument can drift out of the manufactures specification unrecognized and lead to incorrect test results.

Have a look at some of the calibration disciplines we cover in our Calibration Laboratory.

Density Calibration

In food and beverage industries and industries that have to use liquid pre mixes like concrete industries, the density of the product has a direct effect on the quality and hence the particular industry’s bottom line. This requires accurate measurement so as to assure quality with absolute confidence.

The equipment used requires routine calibration and maintenance so as to be able to provide such desired results. At DLA Scientific Limited we offer calibration services on liquid densities using procedures that encompass 0.6000g/cm3 to 2.0000g/cm3 using standards that are traceable to national standards at the Kenya Bureau of Standards.

Our Capabilities

  • Density Hydrometers
  • Digital Density meters
  • Analogue and Digital Brix Refractometers
  • Flow cup calibration

We also get to inform you when calibration is due, two weeks in advance once we calibrate your equipment.

Viscosity Calibration

Properties of fluids play an important role in the design of equipment to be used as well as prediction of the properties of the final product. These properties are dynamic and kinematic properties that have an effect on shear rate and flow rate of the fluids.

Paint, oil and food manufacturers can be the

major beneficiaries of viscosity calibration. Here at DLA Scientific Limited, we have the ability to help you get your equipment calibrated to ensure confidence in results obtained from measurement.

Our Capabilities

  • Viscosity flow cups
  • Digital viscometers
  • Dial viscometers

We also get to inform you when calibration is due, two weeks in advance once we calibrate your equipment.

In the present day industrial environment, it is very important to ascertain the weight of product to avoid wastage and compromised product quality. The instruments used to achieve confidence in weight readings have to be routinely checked for conformation to National Standards. Such checking will be profitable to an organization in avoiding economic loss and ensuring consumer protection. This will be good in keeping good manufacturing practices.

We offer weight calibration with standards that are traceable to the National Standards at the Kenya Bureau of standards.

Capabilities

  • Balance calibration

Pressure Calibration 

Most industrial processes rely on the measurement of pressure; therefore pressure calibration plays a major part in a company’s quality assurance.

Even the highest quality instruments are subject to drift over time, resulting in inaccurate measurements and substandard performance. It is very important that all instruments are calibrated by trained, competent and approved personnel to maintain instrument integrity.

Neglecting calibration can result in downtime, inferior products or process quality issues. Instruments that are critical to the process can drift out of specification and this is a risk to personnel and equipment safety.

The cost of calibration is usually lower as compared to production down time or injury to personnel.

Our Capabilities include:

  • Analogue Pressure Gauges
  • Digital Pressure Gauges
  • Pressure Indicators
  • Pressure Valves
  • Pressure Controllers
  • Vacuum Gauges
  • Manometers

The next time when your pressure equipment is due for calibration please contact us and we will give you competitive prices you want. At our lab or on-site at your facility, we are here to meet your calibration needs.

Temperature Calibration

In any industrial and manufacturing processes, it is essential to maintain temperature controlled conditions.

To be confident in the results being measured there is an ongoing need to maintain the calibration of equipment throughout its lifetime for reliable, accurate and repeatable measurements.

Neglecting calibration can result in downtime, inferior products or process quality issues. Instruments that are critical to the process to drift out of specification could potentially result in a risk to employee safety.

The cost of calibration is usually lower compared to the potential production down time and injury to personnel.

Our Capabilities include:

   1. Controlled Chambers Incubators

Refrigerators

Ovens

Autoclaves

Freezers

2. Non-Contact thermometers

Infrared Thermometers

                                          

 3. Contact thermometers Liquid-in-glass thermometer

Digital thermometer

Dial gauge thermometer

Thermocouple indicators and Temperature Controllers

Thermo-hygrometers

DLA Scientific Ltd boasts of its well trained, competent and approved personnel to maintain instrument integrity. It is there, for all your temperature calibration needs.

Torque Calibration

As technology advances and newer consumer products are made, integrity of the mechanical equipment used in the manufacture as well as the final product is important. The torque that the equipment or product has is a vital importance in determining the said integrity.

Here at DLA Scientific Limited, we are able to offer calibration on this, so as to ensure employee, consumer and equipment safety.

We offer weight calibration with standards that are traceable to the National Standards at the Kenya Bureau of standards.

Capabilities
