SCL provides calibration service for force proving instruments like load cells, load columns and proving rings. These instruments verify uniaxial testing machines that are widely used in the local construction industry.
The Laboratory is equipped with four force standard machines which are able to generate forces in compression or tension mode at a very high accuracy level for calibration. The four force standard machines have capacities of 5 kN, 60 kN, 600 kN and 3000 kN respectively.
The first two (5 kN and 60 kN) are deadweight force standard machines which generate forces as a result of the gravitational effect from deadweights calibrated at very high accuracy. Both deadweight force standard machines are capable of producing forces at an uncertainty of 0.002%.
The other two (600 kN and 3000 kN) are hydraulic force standard machines which amplify the forces generated by the 60 kN deadweight force standard machine through a hydraulic system. The uncertainties of the forces generated are 0.02% and 0.05% respectively.
SCL is able to provide calibration services for the following equipment:-
- Force Proving Instruments
- Force Testing Machines
- Force Measuring Devices
