When you calibrate your own gauges, do you really know for sure that they are correct? With certain gauges, such as boiler gauges, you are taking risks with safety if they are not properly calibrated. That is why it is a good idea to hire a gauge calibration company to do it for you. Here are some other benefits of hiring the company instead of calibrating your gauges yourself in your industrial plant:
Perfectly Calibrated, Every Time
These folks are experts at what they do. It does not matter how many gauges you need to be calibrated or the types of gauges; the pros can, and do, calibrate them perfectly every time. That is truly invaluable when you have some especially sensitive equipment that needs constant monitoring to avoid accidents in the workplace.
When Something Goes Wrong, They Fix It
If you screw up the gauge calibration, that is on you and you will need to fix the issues or find someone else to fix it. A technician from the gauge calibration company rarely messes up, but if he or she does, the company fixes it at their cost, not yours. It is comforting to know that not only with the technician get the calibrations right the first time, but in the rare instance that something goes wrong, they also return to fix that too.
Neither You Nor Your Employees Risk Life and Limb
Gauges are funny things. Sometimes being off by just a hair is putting you or your employees at serious risk for injury. When you hire the gauge calibration company, their representative is the only one taking those risks. He or she gets paid by his/her employer to take those risks, so any injury incurred is on him/her and the calibration company. However, injuries are extremely rare. Ergo, it is double the comfort knowing that no one will be hurt or fatally wounded when you hire the company/technician to do the gauge calibration jobs in your stead.
Price of Service Based on Gauge Type, Frequency, and Difficulty
When you call to schedule an appointment to have the plant's gauges calibrated, it is impossible for the calibration company to give you an estimate. This is because different gauges and the difficulty in reaching them and calibrating them affects the price of services rendered. If certain gauges need to be calibrated more frequently, that also affects the cost of services. After the initial service, the technician can provide you with some estimates that will help you plan ahead for the next service appointment.
