Section 7 | Thermometry (LIGT, DT, and IPRT) Standards Section

Overview

Capabilities


 

 

The Thermometry (LIGT, DT and IPRT) Standards Section of NML calibrates liquid-in-glass thermometers, digital thermometers, industrial platinum resistance thermometers, psychrometers, wall thermometers, refrigerator thermometers and bi-metal thermometers from -30°C to 250°C.
In October 2010, the Thermometry (LIGT, DT and IPRT) Standards Section of NML was granted accreditation by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (German Accreditation Body, DAkkS) to perform calibrations in accordance with the standard DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 for the scope liquid-in-glass thermometers, digital thermometers and industrial platinum resistance thermometers from -30 °C to 250 °C.
DAkkS accreditation is applied for the measurands/calibration items listed below:

Standards and Equipment

 

The Thermometry (LIGT, DT, and IPRT) Standards Section of NML maintains two reference standard SPRTs (Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometer) that are traceable to SI through KRISS, Korea. These SPRTs are used to calibrate two working standard IPRTs (Industrial Platinum Resistance Thermometer) to provide traceability to SI to measurements done in the country. SPRTs may also be used as reference standard for the calibration of thermometers from customers depending on the uncertainty requirement.

 

Reference Standard:  Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometer (SPRT)

 

 Working Standard:  Industrial Platinum Resistance Thermometer (IPRT)

Equipment Calibrated at the Thermometry (LIGT, DT and IPRT) Standards Section of NML:  Liquid-in-Glass Thermometers, Digital Thermometers, Industrial Platinum Resistance Thermometers, Wall Thermometer, Refrigerator Thermometer, Bi-Metal Thermometer and Psychrometer.

 

 


 

CALIBRATION BY COMPARISON METHOD of Liquid-in-Glass Thermometer, Digital Thermometer, Industrial Platinum Resistance Thermometer, Wall Thermometer, Refrigerator Thermometer, Bi-Metal Thermometer and Psychrometer.

 

 

CALIBRATION METHOD:

 

Comparison of the temperature indicated by the Liquid-in-Glass Thermometer, Digital Thermometer, Industrial Platinum Resistance Thermometer, Wall Thermometer, Refrigerator Thermometer, Bi-Metal Thermometer and Psychrometer with the temperature indicated by the working standard Industrial Platinum Resistance Thermometer in a stirred liquid bath. Ice Point temperature is also measured before and after calibration.

 

CAPABILITY: -30°C to 250°C

 


 

Equipment Calibrated at the Thermometry (LIGT, DT and IPRT) Standards Section of NML: Industrial Platinum Resistance Thermometer (IPRT) and Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometer (SPRT)

 

 

CALIBRATION BY COMPARISON METHOD of Industrial Platinum Resistance Thermometer (IPRT) and Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometer (SPRT)

 

 

CALIBRATION METHOD:

 

The Industrial Platinum Resistance Thermometer (IPRT) is calibrated by comparison with a Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometer (SPRT) in a stirred liquid bath . The IPRT is annealed before calibration; the resistance of the IPRT is measured at ice point before and after annealing, and before and after calibration.

 

CAPABILITY: -30°C to 250°C
