Down Time?  Delays?  Long lead times?  Interested in how to avoid hearing these phrases regarding your temperature calibration needs?logo.jpg


Burns now offers "Calibration on your schedule, not ours".  Our new Lab-to-Lab Calibration Service allows you to schedule the calibration of your Secondary Standard Reference Thermometer, or System, and reduce the down time to as little as 3 days.  Here's how it works.


Just think, Ship your SSPRT sensor on a Monday afternoon, and have it back in your lab on Friday morning.  That's only 3 days out of your lab.




It's the same NVLAP accredited (lab code 200706-0) Calibration you know and trust, on a schedule that honors your needs.


Choose from various calibration temperature ranges.


Fill out the information form for your sensor or system and email the form to, and we'll contact you to discuss your schedule needs.


Simple, quick, dependable and best of all during this introductory phase, at the same affordable price.


BE in control of your calibration needs, contact us and we'll help.

NIST honors the cost of change

Posted on May 19, 2009

astm_logo_home.gifJim Burns and Matt Zenner are attending the ASTM committee meeting; E20 for Temperature Measurement  in beautiful Vancouver BC.  Two packed days of discussions on temperature measurement.  It doesn't get any better than that!


At the last meeting in mid November, Dean Ripple of NIST gave an update on the International Temperature Scale of 1990, ITS-90.


Dean said that although the temperature scale has generally been updated every 20 years they are looking at extending ITS-90 another 10 years.  When NIST considered the cost to the industry for the upgrade to equipment and automated calibration systems vs. the benefits that could be realized from the improvement in the temperature scale, they felt it was more practical to wait.


This is a very respectful and real world decision.  We should all be proud of this type of thinking.  ITS-2020?  Mark your calendar to budget for the update within the next 5 to 10 years.   We'll see what the word is in Vancouver.


Here is a little excerpt about Temperature Scales from a Burns Training Document.
