Pyrometry and UKAS Temperature Calibration

To ensure accuracy and the ability to achieve the required tolerances from heat treating equipment, Pyrometry covers all aspects of temperature measurement and control needed to maintain temperatures accurately. From working volume temperature tolerances to sensors and instrumentation, strict specifications control all aspects of pyrometry in aerospace heat treatment. Offering expert advice, guidance, calibration, and process improvement services for pyrometry equipment, Avon-Dynamic Calibration can assist with achieving and maintaining compliance with the latest standards.

Our trained and certified pyrometry technicians have decades of experience in providing the perfect solution for your business. We have designed our services to achieve the technical specifications whilst exceeding our customers’ expectations by providing comprehensive calibration solutions paired with first-class customer service.

Onsite pyrometry testing and calibration services:

Our pyrometry team will provide a comprehensive service to ensure your heat treatment systems meet their exact pyrometry requirements. Included in our range of services are:

Temperature Uniformity Surveys

Multiple sensors are placed within the furnace, and the temperatures are recorded to provide evidence of the temperature spread across the furnace and help to ensure the furnace consistently and accurately produces quality parts. Our testing equipment is certified to meet the strict aerospace pyrometry requirements to provide accurate reporting.

System Accuracy Tests

An SAT is designed to validate the accuracy of the furnace control and recording systems inside the furnace, by comparing their values against calibrated instruments and sensors.

Instrumentation Calibration

This ensures the accuracy of your control and recording instrumentation. In addition to providing calibration results, our technicians will also analyse any potential equipment problems and repair the errors as necessary.

Thermocouple Supply and Management

Our procurement team is on hand to provide replacement thermocouple sensors, thermocouple cables, and instrumentation. All of these are precisely calibrated and certified to suit your individual heat treatment needs for SAT testing, temperature uniformity surveys (TUS), and production work in approved furnaces.

Asset Management:

Our fully managed calibration services, paired with our dedicated pyrometry team, will cater all your temperature related requirements, allowing you more time to focus on other activities. We can also arrange for the servicing and repairs of your heat treatment equipment.

Compliance Specialists

Our specialist pyrometry team is here to support you and help you achieve and retain the necessary certifications.

Our calibration team will regularly test and calibrate your assets to ensure the equipment is functioning as expected and to maintain accuracy and compliance with the relevant specifications.

We offer calibration services from UKAS-Accredited Testing and Calibration Labs within the temperature range: -80°C to 1300 °C. We can offer support on a broad range of temperature related equipment, such as:

  • Temperature Sensors
  • Thermal Processing Equipment
  • Controllers
  • Data Loggers
  • Temperature Policeman
  • Temperature Instrumentation

A component’s integrity can be altered when exposed to thermal, mechanical, or chemical stresses. Ensuring that products are correctly heat treated prior to use can help avoid any potential defects that may not be visible upon inspection.

If you’re uncertain whether your equipment meets the required standards, get in touch to discuss your requirements, and we will book your free-of-charge onsite visit today.
