Food, Pharma and Biotech

In the food, pharma and biotech industry, hygienic connections, on-site cleaning ability and suitable materials are important.  Materials must neither influence the products nor be damaged by the cleaning media or cleaning process.

Dosing of precise quantities of gases and liquids is used to initiate and control Manufacturing and Test processes. In the food, pharma and biotech sector, measuring and dosing devices have a decisive influence.  For instance, on the function and effectiveness of the processes as well as the quality of the end products.

Correct function and accuracy of the equipment used is therefore not only a safety consideration, but directly influences the quality of the final product.

Trust in the quality of our accredited laboratories!

Calibration of flow meters for biopharmaceutical processes

Precise measurement under changing climatic conditions?

We strive to take all environmental parameters into account during calibration. For example, if at all practical, we use the original media for our calibrations. Because flowmeters behave in oil differently than water, in helium different than propane. Temperature, pressure, viscosity – all of these have an effect on the measurement result. Describe your process conditions to us when you send in your instruments for calibration. Or simply fill out our calibration profile to obtain the most accurate calibration results.

DAkkS ISO 17025 accredited Calibrations

Throughout the industry, DAkkS calibrations are more and more frequently requested because they guarantee traceability to national and international standards. ISO/IEC 17025 is in principle the “book” for all calibration laboratories. There are many similarities with ISO 9000, but ISO 17025 is much more concrete and direct about procedures and standards.  In this respect, ISO 17025 is the definitive document for evaluating and controlling the competence of a calibration laboratory.

TrigasFI is DAkkS accredited not only for calibrations that we perform in our Neufahrn Lab, but for on-site calibrations as well, performed at your location.

You can download our accreditation certificates here. In the annexes you will find a listing of certified uncertainties.  After that, you and can use this information to determine if the laboratory meets your requirements.

To sum it all up, TrigasFI offers you an exciting combination of premium accuracy and the widest measuring ranges.

Accreditation Certificates:

DAkkS accreditation D-K-15149-01-00 with annex

TÜV ISO 9001 certification

We are independent

We are not tied to any flowmeter manufacturer.  Our services and consultation is not subject to external influences.

And since most flowmeter manufacturers are our customers as well, many favor us with access to any software required for electronic adjustment of their flowmeters.  We calibrate practically any type of flowmeter, Coriolis, Thermal mass flowmeters, Magnetic inductive flowmeters, Variable Area flowmeters, Ultrasonic flowmeters, Turbine flowmeters, etc.

You want to know if your calibration intervals are adequate to ensure measurement accuracy?  Ask for an “As-Found” calibration and compare it to the previous calibration of your flowmeter.  A history of performance drift over time allows you to adjust your calibration intervals and optimize your performance-to-cost ratio. 
We offer this evaluation service free of charge for all flowmeters we have calibrated more than once.

Onsite Calibrations for Food and Biotech Customers

Sometimes, critically important systems cannot be removed from their location and sent the laboratory for calibration.  In such cases, TrigasFI comes to you.  Our technicians regularly visit the premises of customers worldwide to carry out on-site calibrations.

With suitable preparation not only the measuring instrument itself but also complete measurement assembly can be calibrated.  Most importantly, this allows installation effects to be taken into account, resulting in even more accurate measurement results.

Our calibration ranges

For Gases, we offer accredited flow calibration on our Sonic Nozzle test benches up to 20000 Nl/min. With two primary Bell Provers and Laminar Flow Element test benches we can calibrate as low as 0.1 Nml/min.

We calibrate not only with air, but also with many non-hazardous gases.  Please contact our lab for details.

For liquids we calibrate with our accredited Displacer/Piston calibrators over a range from 0.00005 l/min (0.05 ml/min) up to 2000 l/min.  With these primary, high precision flow standards we calibrate with an overall accuracy of 0.04 % of the measured value.

With our high-flow water loop we can calibrate at flows up to 5000 l/min.

Our Service for Food and Biotech Industries

In addition to calibration we also service and repair your instruments.  If it is not possible to do so directly in our premises or, we gladly organize repairs with the original  manufacturers for you.  As a result you receive your instruments back fully functional and calibrated.

If a repair is no longer economically viable, we will be happy to provide objective, non-partisan advise on a replacement instruments.  If you wish, we will also procure and independently calibrate the replacement equipment.

Our service offering to you is complemented by our own flow test bench design and construction.  As well as manufacturer-independent consulting and flow training seminars.
