Calibrating and Testing Your Equipment: What are Your Options?

When it comes to calibrating and testing your equipment, HTL provides numerous options to ensure that the process is best suited to your requirements. Calibration is vitally important wherever measurements are a necessity and enables you to have confidence in the results that you monitor and record.

With that in mind, here are the services we provide when it comes to calibrating and testing your equipment:

1. Send your tools to your nearest HTL facility

HTL Group has facilities across the UK, in Cramlington, Aberdeen, and Great Yarmouth. As well as having a stock of rental equipment readily available on the shelves, each facility also has its own calibration and testing laboratory.

Our calibration labs and procedures are all traceable to UKAS standards, giving you the quality guarantee that you have come to expect from UKAS calibration marks.  We can calibrate a huge range of equipment including:

  • Torque tools up to 100,000 Nm
  • Hydraulic gauges up to 40,000 psi
  • Air gauges up to 160 psi

Our team can also perform pressure tests on Hydraulic Bolt Tensioners up to 4”, as well as load tests on Hydraulic Cylinders up to 200 Ton.

Fast-Track Calibration

Here at HTL, we understand that when you need your equipment calibrated, serviced, and maintained it must be carried out efficiently, expertly, and thoroughly, therefore, we offer both Standard and Fast Track calibration options – with 24, 48, and 72-hour options available.

2. Book our Calibration Van

With our fully equipped Calibration Van, you get your equipment calibrated on-site, reducing costs and downtime. The ideal solution for removing any logistical issues you may have with sending your tools to one of our facilities.

How it works

The fully equipped HTL Calibration Van arrives directly on-site and can calibrate any make or model of Torque Tooling including Hand, Pneumatic, Electric, or Hydraulic Torque Wrenches and Pump Units.

After each calibration, a certificate can be printed and issued direct to you on-site and will also be uploaded digitally to iCalibrate 2.0. Each certificate is traceable to the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).
