While we all know that measurements are useless in the absence of a correctly calibrated weighing instrument, it’s all too easy to forget that sooner or later the accuracy of your weighing instruments will change over time, due to factors such as: drift, general ‘wear and tear’, being overloaded, mishandled, dropped or neglected.
These factors can cause equipment to provide incorrect measurements, which cause issues such as:
- overfilling/ undercharging
- underfilling/ overcharging
- materials waste, and/or
- infringement of compliance requirements.
So, don’t fall into the trap of believing that your weighing equipment doesn’t require further attention once it’s been installed or that calibration is only necessary when errors become evident. The longer the time between periodic services, the greater your exposure to the risks mentioned.
