Special Tests for Thermometry

The Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometer Calibration Laboratory (SPRTL) provides the following special services that are related to the ITS-90:

  • Proficiency-test artifacts (e.g. SPRTs)
  • Bridge certification
  • Evaluation of prototype thermometric devices

How to Arrange a Calibration

  1. Contact the staff member in charge of the calibration service for your artifact with any technical or calibration cost questions.
  2. Calibrations are performed on a first come first serve basis.
  3. Ship your artifact with a copy of the purchase order. Use a sturdy box in which we can return the calibrated instrument.
  4. The purchase order may be sent to contact by e-mail, fax, or mail. Please include the following information:
  • service ID for the calibration
  • model and serial number of your artifact
  • customer contact name, address, phone, and e-mail
  • return shipping method (e.g., shipping account number)

For contact information, shipping address, or cost of calibration, see Resistance Thermometry.
