Pressure calibration equipment is a critical component to the success of your business. It's expensive, so you don't want to make a mistake in purchasing or servicing it. That's why you should ask yourself these five questions before choosing a pressure calibration solution:

How Many Pressure Calibrators Do I Need?

The number of pressure calibrators you need to purchase depends on the following factors:

  • How many processes do you have?
  • How many locations do you have?
  • How many different pressure ranges do you need calibrated?

What Accuracy Level Do I Need?

Suppose you're wondering what accuracy level your application requires. In that case, you can use a simple rule of thumb: high accuracy levels are generally required for critical applications, like medical equipment or air traffic control.

 Low accuracy levels are usually sufficient for non-critical applications like HVAC equipment or manufacturing lines.

But how do you know if your application is critical? The answer depends on the industry and type of product you're dealing with. In general, though, anything that involves human safety or health is considered a critical application—and those types of products require higher levels of precision than those used in non-critical industries such as manufacturing plants or office buildings.

In some cases where the application isn't clearly defined as either "critical" or "non-critical," it may be useful to determine whether there's an existing standard (like ISO 17025) that can provide guidance on what level of precision is necessary for successful operation. If not, then you'll have to look at other factors like risk management and cost analysis when making this decision.

Should I Rent, Lease Or Purchase My Pressure Calibration Equipment?

  • Renting

If you’re not sure how long you will need the equipment and don’t have the capital to purchase it, renting may be the best option for you. When leasing or renting equipment, there are several factors to consider: how long do I plan on using this piece of equipment? Will my business grow rapidly over time, making purchasing more financially viable?

  • Leasing

Leasing is another way to spread out costs over a period of time and avoid paying large sums up front. Leasing offers flexibility because if your needs change or expand quickly—and they often do—you don’t have to worry about owning too much inventory that might go unused for months at a time before being sold at auction when something new comes along (or worse yet: being stuck with something no longer needed).

What Does The Future Look Like For My Business?

As we’ve explained, pressure calibration is an important part of critical process industries. But how does pressure calibration fit into your business? What does the future look like for your company?

To answer this question, you need to consider how the industry in which you operate will change over the next year or two. It can be helpful to take a look at what’s currently going on in your industry and make sure that you have a plan for capitalising on any trends related to pressure calibration.

What Other Calibration Services Will My Equipment Need?

When choosing a pressure calibration solution, you'll want to consider what other calibration services your equipment will need. Pressure is the most common service, but other calibrations might be necessary for your specific applications.

If you need temperature and flow calibrations, or any combination of them, it's best to choose a solution that supports all three types of calibrations. This way, your entire system can be calibrated at once instead of having different machines calibrated independently by different companies or technicians.


There are many factors to consider when choosing a pressure calibration solution. By asking yourself these questions, you can make sure that you select the right one for your business.
