How Often Should A Thermometer Be Recertified ?
Many factors determine recertification of thermometers, such as usage, temperatures measured, in-house procedures, and regulatory agencies' guidelines and policies. As a general guideline for good laboratory and manufacturing practices, thermometers should be recertified / verified on an annual basis.
The Recertification Program Consists of...
- Complete visual inspection for any physical damage.
- If possible the damage will be repaired.
- Thermometer readings are compared against NIST standards in high precision calibration baths using the comparison method at determined test temperatures.
- Each temperature is recorded to 1/10th of a scale division.
- A calibration report is generated detailing the pertinent information including the correction factors for each test point.
- All calibration information is entered into the THERMCO data storage system.
- All certification procedures are performed in accordance with NIST and ASTM guidelines, which meet with requirements set by regulatory agencies.
