Diagnostics & Audits
2018 HPC National Conference Session
This session will explain the manufacturer calibration process, requirements and how it relates accurate measurements. We will cover different procedures by each manufacturer to make sure you understand what must be completed and when and good QA procedures. Ever wonder what the manufacturer does before you receive your equipment or when you send it back to be calibrated? We’ll take you behind the scenes to see the process. This session will explain the difference between gauge calibration (pressure) and fan calibration (flow). Do you know which will cause a greater error - a gauge off by 10% or a fan off by 10%? Find out the reality of accuracy and repeatability in this session.
