Endress+Hauser recently announced an expansion of 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 flow rate capabilities.
Offering better support while cutting shipping costs
“With the addition of this new flow calibration rig, we will expand our calibration capabilities to cover flowmeter sizes from 1/12 inch to 12 inches,” said Kyle Shipps, Endress+Hauser Calibration and Repair Group manager. “This allows 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 lab and on-site, helping customers stay in compliance, while reducing costs and increasing uptime. The new water calibration rig will expand capabilities to 12-inch 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 is also offering expedited calibration turn times for certain applications. This includes 24-hour or 3-day expedited returns for customers with critical applications.
The Houston campus also provides cleaning services for customer meters. 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.
