Endress+Hauser is now accredited to ISO17025 by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) for both laboratory and field calibration of process instrumentation. The company's new LaPorte Calibration and Service Center in LaPorte, Texas, is the main laboratory; the accreditation covers both laboratory calibrations in LaPorte and field calibrations at a customer’s location. A spokesman for the company says that Endress+Hauser is the only process instrument manufacturer with the ability to provide both lab and field accredited calibrations.
The scope of accreditation includes the principles of flow, pressure and temperature for both laboratory and on-site calibration. Also included within the scope are electrical parameters associated with current, voltage, resistance and frequency pertaining to internal laboratory calibration.
The La Porte facility houses one of the most accurate flow calibration laboratories in the country. A second A2LA accredited Endress+Hauser facility is located in Greenwood, Ind.
