Accurate quantity measurement is crucial in worldwide trading.
Tank calibration services from SGS can help you measure and verify quantities/volumes and maintain good contractual relationships with your clients.
The importance of accurate tank calibration
Calibration is the science of determining the exact true volume of a containment system corresponding to a certain measurement value. It is key to obtaining accurate measurements of quantity. Without accurate calibration tables, even the best gauging systems and the most accurate manual measurements are of little value. With SGS as your calibration partner, you can be sure of the highest degree of measurement accuracy, helping you to maintain client confidence and preventing costly errors.
We are a world leader in the physical calibration of all types of vessels such as static storage tanks, trucks, demountable tanks and ships including specialised gas and LNG carriers.
As well as using traditional methods of tank calibration, we are at the forefront of new developments in calibration technology. Cutting-edge techniques such as Laser Distance Technology enable the calibration of ship and shore tanks without scaffolding, keeping additional cost and disruption to a minimum. We also produce capacity tables, certificates of accuracy and software to ensure reliable volume determination.
SGS has also developed expertise in the calibration of vertical shore tanks, rigid prismatic tanks, membrane tanks, horizontal cylinders and spherical tanks.
