Flow Meter Calibration

Our competitive and fully traceable in-house flow meter calibration service is suitable for a wide range of flow meters including TurbineVortexElectromagneticCoriolisPositive Displacement and Ultrasonic.

Our in-house flow meter calibration facility at our premises in West Yorkshire allows us to offer the following:

  • 1mm to 200mm Pipe Sizes
  • 5 – Point Calibration as standard
  • Wide calibration range from 1 l/hr to 4000 l/min
  • Traceable to UKAS

Additionally, our oil flow meter calibration rig now allows us to offer a traceable oil flow meter calibration for Small Bore Piston Meters, Gear, Helical Screw, Turbine and Coriolis flow meters.

  • Traceable Oil Calibration
  • Flow rates from 0.25 l/min to 50/min
  • 5 – Point Calibration as standard

“We regularly use Flowquip for supply and calibration of our reference flowmeter’s. Their high level of calibration service has been invaluable to us over the years. Since day one Procon have had confidence that our equipment will be calibrated and returned to us in a timely manner. Flowquip have been an excellent supplier to us for well over 20 years and I would not hesitate to recommend their services”
Steve Middleton – Senior Service Engineer, Procon Engineering Ltd

UKAS Traceable Flow Calibration

Once put into service all flowmeters should be checked and calibrated annually or at least biennially. In order to prove a flowmeters performance and accuracy it must be checked against a reference device such as a master flowmeter or master weigh scale.

All of Flowquip’s reference flowmeters and weigh scales are calibrated annually and are traceable to independent UKAS calibration laboratories. Throughout the year Flowquip’s calibration technicians carry out periodic verification of the master reference devices by cross checking and recording results from each device.

The majority of flow meter calibrations are carried out using cool clean water although we can calibrate using light oils or Diesel fuel on our new oil rig. The water tank and pipe work are manufactured from stainless steel and the water is filtered and screened to ensure no debris can enter the system.

Quick Calibration Turnaround

Typical turnaround time for flow meter calibration is two to three days; we also offer a same day turnaround and a ‘while you wait’ service at extra cost. Types of calibration include five points with two repeats as standard and ten points with electronic linearisation on request.

Flowquip can also repair many types and makes of flowmeter

Any manufacturers flowmeters can be accommodated in our flow rigs and we can quickly and easily connect with flanged, screwed or wafer process connections. Flowquip can also repair many types and makes of flowmeter provided that any spare parts required are still available.

All meters returned for calibration must be certified clean and be accompanied with a completed COSHH certificate.

Our calibration facility can be hired out for witness calibration or OEM product testing.

The uncertainty of measurement in our calibration processes is estimated to be 0.3% Please contact us on 01422 829920 or email sales@flowquip.co.uk for a COSHH certificate.

Flowquip are now able to offer same-day or next day turnaround on some flow meters, please contact us for prices.

We also offer flow meters for flow meter verification on Offshore installations, through our sister company, Flowhire. More information can be found here Flow Meter Verification and Instrument Calibration – Flowhire
