Beamex Blog: Temperature units and temperature unit conversion 09/07/2018
The temperature of an object can be defined by the average kinetic energy of its atoms and molecules, a definition for temperature that we can understand relatively easily. Kelvin is the unit of fundamental physical quantity called thermodynamic temperature (T) and is currently defined as the fraction 1/273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature of the triple point of water (exactly 0.01°C).

Download white paper on how to prepare for calibration in extreme environments! 30/10/2017
Before performing calibrations in hazardous (Ex) areas, there are several things to consider to ensure safety. Typical industries with hazardous areas include chemical and petrochemical industries, offshore and on-shore oil and gas, oil refining, the pharmaceutical industry, food and beverage, energy production, paint shops and mining. Download the white paper here... Full Story...

Data Integrity in Calibration Processes 20/06/2017
In this article, we look at the data integrity more from the calibration process point of view, and focus mainly on the pharmaceutical and regulated industry. Topics like data integrity in general and the ALCOA plus concept are briefly discussed. Since the impacts of the breach of data integrity can be enormous, it is something that should be a high priority. Download the free white paper and find out why! Full Story...

Calibration uncertainty for non-mathematicians 06/06/2017
