Comparison Calibration

The CCPI Europe Laboratory provides a full range of comparison calibration options for temperature sensors. From a single test sensor at one temperature point to hundreds of sensors covering their full temperature range. CCPI Europe presents certifications in a clear and easily readable format. We also provide this with the accuracy levels and timely delivery the organisation is renowned for.

What is a Comparison Calibration?

This is when a temperature sensor requiring a test compares against a reference sensor in a thermally stable environment working at the temperature given. As corrections can be made to the previously calibrated reference sensor readings, the true environment temperature can be calculated, from this the test sensor readings and corrections can be determined.
Often we use PRTs in the range -200 to 500 °C as reference sensors, above 500 °C Platinum/Rhodium thermocouples are the preferred reference sensor (type R, S or B).

For comparison calibrations, we have developed highly sophisticated measurement and analytical software. This allows accurate and efficient comparison calibration of all thermocouple types giving our customers peace of mind.
