Testo Top Tip: Instrument Calibration

Top_Tip_LogoCalibration is a necessary part of operating in an industry that requires the use of measurement instruments. Like with insurance, people will always see the downsides of calibration, such as the downtime and the costs, but there are huge benefits that sometimes remain unseen. The hidden costs of working with unreliable instruments and providing inaccurate readings will, in the long run, greatly outweigh the cost of regular instrument calibration and maintenance.

  • Calibration needs to be regular but this might mean as infrequently as once a year.
  • If you exceed the specific recommended usage-hours for your instrument.
