technicians who are within a few hours travel time
of their sites. Additionally, a geographically diverse
presence means there are more technicians available
to travel to sites during surge times. This also creates
options for shipping units to a full-fledged lab for
timely calibrations of large quantities of instruments.
Due to their scale, these larger service providers
are also familiar with administrating large calibration-management programs, and they can often
collaborate with end users to tailor their services to
exactly what is needed. Some calibration service
providers may even be able to assist with process
issues such as optimization and loop tuning, which
relate to instrumentation but are outside the exact
domain of calibration.
Every process plant requires some level of operational time sensitivity to ensure maximum productivity. These operations need properly calibrated
instruments not only for efficiency, but often to meet

regulatory requirements. Instrument calibration is a
specialty activity, in some cases needed intermittently
and unexpectedly, and often requiring a large number
of specialized staff.
These and other issues can be addressed by
engaging a calibration service provider to meet all or
some of a plant's metrology needs. This can allow a
plant to maintain correct staffing levels for day-to-day
operations, with the ability to quickly respond to any
calibration challenges. EP
