Ordering Density Meter Calibrations
Calibration of a standard hand-held density meter, such as an Anton Paar DMA 35 series, calibrated at 20°c, using three liquids, is £210GBP.
For prices for the calibration of bench-top instruments and on-line instruments, please contact us.
Standard calibrations are performed at our laboratory in North Wales.
Within the UK, the standard charge is £17.50GBP. Carriage costs for deliveries outside the UK will depend upon the destination and the weight of the shipment.
We are also able to offer on-site calibration for laboratory density meters. Again, please contact us for further details and prices.
How to order Density Meter Calibrations
Please read the important infomation below before sending your instrument for calibration.
The linearity of density meters differs from model to model (and sometimes even between instruments of the same model). We therefore recommend that the calibration range should be restricted to the density range over which the meter is used.
You should use the density meter calibration enquiry form to indicate the range over which your meter is used. Please note that work cannot begin until we have received your completed form.
Notice of arrival
When sending density meters to us for calibration we would appreciate prior notice of their arrival, especially if they are to be temporarily imported from a non-EU country. A failure to do this may result in an extensive delay at Customs. In addition to the delay, taxes and import duites may be levied.
By informing us in advance, and following our instructions, you will enable us to utilise the UK Customs ‘Inward Processing Relief’ service, thus avoiding delay and duties.
If the meter has been used in conjunction with any hazardous liquids, please inform us of this when sending the instrument. This can be done using the density meter calibration enquiry form. Please ensure that the meter is clean and free of residue. Should we have to clean the instrument prior to calibration, we reserve the right to charge an additional fee.
Hazardous materials include chemical (e.g. strong acid or alkali), biological (e.g. blood, urine) or any radioactive material.
