High pressure calibration

H.P.F.M. B.V. has been an independent reliable and experienced partner in high pressure calibration services for over 30 years. We offer pressure calibration services to different industries such as automotive, general engineering, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, military (NATO) and food industries, demanding the highest levels of accuracy and quality.

Calibrations are performed according to the NEN EN ISO/IEC 17025-2005; procedures, ensuring our clients that secondary or primary standard calibration of any pressure equipment is performed on the highest level. We calibrate in gauge pressures as well as absolute pressure, providing accurate reports and certificates. All calibrations are carried out in the best possible laboratory conditions to specify the Calibration Measurement Capabilities (CMC’s) & total measurement uncertainties to the most accurate levels.

Primary high pressure calibration up to 1.6 GPa

Due to fast developments within different industries, the demand for high pressure calibration up to 1.6 GPa is vastly growing. Only a few suppliers in the world can meet these demands but none to a primary standard.

The only supplier in Europe to reach 1.6 Gpa

H.P.F.M. B.V. is so far the only supplier in Europe and one of very few in the world, who can perform high pressure calibration up to 1.6 GPa against an International Primary Pressure Standard (IPPS); the most accurate standard in the world for calibration today, within this unique range!

We are not new to this primary standard high pressure calibration. Already in 1990 we performed high pressure calibration for the Dutch Navy, and the food industries. In 2002 we performed successful primary standard calibrations for HBM GmbH up to 1.5 GPa. Making H.P.F.M. B.V. one of the most reliable and experienced partner for all high pressure calibration services.

Ready for the future

The rapid development in high pressure techniques, offers many possibilities for different industries. It also creates huge potential within other areas such as the environment, F.M.C.G., health care, agriculture, horticulture, orthopaedics and much more.

H.P.F.M. B.V. is closely following and supporting all metrology developments in high pressure calibration and is requested to collaborate with the international development of the Joint Research Project (JRP) team managed by the German National Metrology laboratory (PTB) , and supported by the European Metrology Programme, implemented by EURAMET.

Also in the field of Non Destructive Testing (NDT), H.P.F.M. B.V. is one of the leading players and the first to commercialise one of the most effective NDT methods: Acoustic Pulse Reflectometry. Including the Apparent Wall Reduction procedures (AWR), Acc ASME & DIN is our specialty too.
