Calibration and Certification Services

Vortex Technologies offers third-party, in-house, and field calibration services for a wide range of products and technologies, including flow, level, pressure, and temperature technologies. Vortex Technologies can calibrate your full bore magnetic, turbine, propeller, ultrasonic, or differential pressure devices as well as others.

Keep your process equipment and process systems operating at peak efficiency. Ensure that you are meeting the requirement of discharge permits or other regulatory requirements. A certificate of calibration and compliance is provided for each piece of equipment that is calibrated, making record keeping simple, up-to-date, and worry-free.

Vortex Technologies due date reminder service lets you know when your next calibration is due.

Field Calibration Methodology

In order to keep your flow instruments operating at like new factory specifications, Vortex Technologies technicians will install a non-invasive, NIST traceable reference meter on the same line that the meter in need of calibration is installed. Initial readings for each device are recorded and any difference in flow rate between the reference device and the meter under test is noted. A percentage correction factor (k factor) is calculated. The meter under test is then adjusted to match the reference meter. For critical processes, the process flows can be changed and a multi-point curve can be generated to show the operational characteristics of the meter under test at various flow rates and how it relates to the reference meter.

Instrument Sales and Rental

Vortex Technologies offers a wide range of popular process control instrumentation. Flow, level, temperature, and pressure devices are our area of expertise. Vortex Technologies is not a typical manufacturers' representative, but rather we maintain a distributor relationship with many suppliers. This arrangement allows our application engineers to evaluate your specific situation and make recommendations for the appropriate product that provides the best solution for that specific situation.

If you are in need of equipment for a short term, flow or level survey, interim device while waiting for replacement equipment delivery or any other reason, Vortex Technologies offers a range of rental equipment that can meet your needs. Install the equipment yourself or have Vortex Technologies install and commission the equipment.

There is no job to small or large for Vortex Technologies, whether a single instrument or dozens of varying types, you can be assured all work will be done to the highest standards, at a reasonable cost.
