New calibration rig at Houston Campus provides superior service for customers
Endress+Hauser expands its calibration capabilities in the U.S. with a new flow calibration rig located at the company’s recently inaugurated Houston Campus. The rig will service customers’ flowmeters, including those from third-party vendors, and will have expanded line size and flowrate capabilities.
“With the addition of this new flow calibration rig, we will expand our calibration capabilities to cover flowmeter sizes from 1/12 in. to 12 in.,” says Kyle Shipps, Endress+Hauser Calibration and Repair Group Manager. “This will allow us to better support the installed base of flowmeters in the region, while reducing shipping costs and total turnaround time for our customers.”
Expanding flow calibration capabilities
Endress+Hauser offers accredited calibration both in the laboratory and onsite for their own and other vendor’s products, helping their customers stay in compliance while reducing costs and increasing uptime. The Houston Campus, which is ISO 17025 accredited, has been providing flow, temperature and pressure calibration services since it opened in 2020.
The new calibration rig will expand flow capabilities to 12” line size and 1,750 gallons per minute and can service Coriolis (standard and premium calibration), electromagnetic, vortex, ultrasonic in-line, and ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeters.
Adding value to the region
The Houston facility offers expedited calibration turn times for certain applications. This includes 24-hour or 3-day expedited calibration returns for customers who need urgent response for critical applications.
The Houston campus also provides cleaning services for customer meters. Many times, meters are brought in from the field or plant and need to be cleaned before they can be calibrated. Endress+Hauser is now able to provide cleaning and calibration, eliminating that extra burden for the customer.
“Endress+Hauser continues to invest in technology and strategies that bring us closer to our customers and the industries that we serve,” adds Shipps. “We are always looking for unique ways to make our customers’ lives easier, so we’re very excited for this new calibration rig, and all the ways it can be used to provide superior service to the region.”
