Topic: New Concepts & Best Practices in the Calibration of Climatic Chambers
Speaker: Jun Bautista, Micro Quality Calibration, Inc.
This presentation will touch upon chamber calibration related topics with special emphasis on humidity chambers in terms of the most recent updates, proposed changes, recommended practices, and compliance to the mandates and conformance to established local and international standards and guidelines. Highlighted during this presentation will be the measurement uncertainties that may necessarily be considered when calibration climatic chambers. I will also be demonstrating the concept of 0% RH as a reference (not a measurement) point and the rationale behind its usage.
As a bonus, I will be exhibiting new design concepts in climatic chamber design and manufacturing that supports the measurement uncertainty elements in climatic chamber calibration.
How to manage them.
Topic: Coriolis and Ultrasonic Flowmeter Technology
Speaker: Thomas Kegel, Colorado Engineering Experiment
Engineers today face more flowmeter selection options than in the past. Older technologies (turbine, differential producers, electromagnetic) continue in service and incremental improvements in the technology appear in the market. This presentation will present the newest technologies: the ultrasonic and Coriolis. The topics include design, operation, applications, and installation. Also discussed will be unique diagnostic features that can provide insight into measurement integrity and aid in troubleshooting
Topic: Best practices of measuring temperature with thermocouples
Speaker: Dan Jackson, Thermometry Product Mgr., Tegam
Making Temperature measurements with a thermocouple can seem straight forward but you can get significant errors if you are not careful. The discussion will go over the principles behind a thermocouple, the 3 Laws of Thermocouples, Cold Junction Compensation and discusses how they can help or hurt you in your measurements. Also, Common errors and how to avoid them and best practices when using thermocouples
Topic: Advantages of Calibration Automation & Asset Management Software
Speaker: Scott Peterson, Regional Product Mgr., Electrical/RF Fluke Calibration
I plan to include information about Northrop Grumman’s: SureCal, Keysight’s: “Test Management Environment,” and Flukes: Met/Cal, to cover all aspects of this technical review.
I also plan to cover the benefits of using Asset Management Software for calibration labs, which provides such benefits as:
- Managing all aspects of Calibration operations
- Improved productivity and reduced operating costs
- Maintain compliance with regulatory standards
- Configure and customize for your companies unique business rules
- Generate reports to meet a wide range of calibration requirements
Helps to maintain an audit trail….just to name a few.
