Flow Technology's calibration lab receives NVLAP accreditation

Flow Technology, Inc. (FTI), a leading manufacturer of precision flow measurement instruments, systems and calibrators, today announced its primary standard flow meter calibration laboratory has been accredited by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). The facility is now accredited to provide ISO/IEC 17025:2005 liquid calibrations - the "Gold Standard" for absolute accuracy and repeatability.

A U.S. government program administered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), NVLAP provides the highest quality accreditation services to U.S. industry and is recognized nationally and internationally as a world-class laboratory accreditation program. NVLAP is in full conformance with all recognized standards for the metrology industry, including NIST Handbook 150, ISO/IEC 17025 and Guide 58, as well as ANSI/NSCL Z540. NVLAP accreditation criteria were established in accordance with the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR, Title 15 Part 285), NVLAP Procedures and General Requirements.

A calibration laboratory must be audited annually to maintain its NVLAP accreditation. This audit is not only based on the lab's calibrator documentation traceability, but also the process used to maintain guaranteed accuracy.

According to Flow Technology Vice President Ralph Duffill, NVLAP accreditation serves as a vital tool to enhance customer confidence that flow meter calibration data are accurate, traceable, and have good reproducibility. "NVLAP accreditation provides third-party verification of superior calibration proficiency and correlation," said Duffill. "It also offers assurance of technically valid results on every flowmeter calibration, with enhanced data reports showing measurement uncertainties."

Flow meter users, including those with aerospace, automotive, oil & gas and industrial operations, rely on Flow Technology for primary standard calibration services for all types of flow meters. All calibrations are traceable to NIST and ISO 9000 guidelines. Flexible flow meter service and repair programs can be tailored to the customer's specific needs, and offer the industry's fastest turnaround time.
