Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS


Kistler Instruments (, one of the world's leading pressure sensor manufacturers, is extending its UK calibration service to users of pressure transducers and gauges from other manufacturers. Until now, the Kistler UKAS accredited laboratory has focused it's calibration services on Kistler pressure sensors but is now able to offer its services for all makes and types of gas and hydraulic pressure transducers and gauges together with associated signal conditioning equipment.

With almost 30 years experience of instrument calibration, Kistler's calibration manager, Les Deedman, says, "Recent investment in state-of-the-art calibration equipment has extended the range of pressure calibration services we can provide. We can calibrate pressure transducers and gauges up to 120MPa (1200 bar) in gauge and absolute modes. A new service, calibration of low pressure digital manometers, will be of interest to air conditioning and clean room companies."

Although the Kistler calibration service is to the highest standards, ISO/IEC 17025:2005, the costs are very competitive due to the reliable flow of work from users of Kistler transducers.
