What Happened When The Subcontractor Used Not Properly Calibrated Instruments ...

calibration random email Jun 11, 2019

Yesterday a gentleman from Louisiana signed up to my random email for commissioning service providers.

The company, the gentleman, works for is JM Test Systems.

Here is an excerpt from their about page:

"Our commitment to accuracy, reliability, quality and service is what will make JM Test Systems stand out for you. We are an ISO/IEC 17025 lab accredited by A2LA, providing NIST Traceable calibration and repair for your test equipment. JM Test Systems complies with ANSI/NCSL Z-540 and ISO 10012-1. Whether you are looking for new or used equipment, you'll find it all here."

This reminds me of a personal story about the importance of adequately calibrated test equipment and the proper documents for the calibration many years ago.

I worked for a turbine manufacturer as a site manager for a few turbine overhauling projects in Germany.

The subcontractor who carried out the cable testing did the work with measurement devices which had no proper calibration documents (and haven't been appropriate calibrated either).

So, what was the impact?

The subcontractor had to do ALL the work again with properly calibrated instruments.

If you have projects in Louisiana, Texas, or across the US (they have mobile calibration labs), JM Test Systems can be your solution for adequately calibrated equipment.
