Measurements for Radiologically Controlled Instrumentation and Materials


Your Source of High-Accuracy Measurements for Radiologically Controlled Instrumentation and Materials

If you are in need of a calibration company that provides both quality and accredited calibrations on your radiologically controlled (also known as contaminated) equipment and radiation protection instrumentation (also referred to as rad pro), you’ve come to the right place!

At Constellation PowerLabs, we are an approved nuclear supplier and provide calibrations, testing and analysis for the entire Constellation fleet. Not only do we serve the Constellation fleet, we also service customers from all across the world in various industries from nuclear to aerospace, manufacturing, and pharmaceutical.


Our Quality Program

As an approved nuclear supplier, we follow strict guidelines and adhere to the following regulations and codes: 10 CFR 50, Appendix B, 10 CFR 21, NQA-1 and ANSI N45.2. Our Quality program is routinely audited by NUPIC and NIAC. These audits, made available to the industry, certify our competence as a nuclear supplier, and aid in streamlining our relationships with other regulated industries.

All of our services align with the scope of our Appendix B program, providing our nuclear customers the benefit of having a single-source vendor for all their calibration and testing needs.

Not only are we an approved nuclear supplier, but we are also an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory under A2LA. This means we can provide accredited calibrations – not only to your clean equipment – but to your contaminated equipment as well.


Specialized in Calibration and Testing of Radiologically Controlled Instrumentation and Materials

Due to our advanced capabilities and knowledge in metrology and testing, we are able to support the following needs.

Calibration and Testing of Radiologically Controlled Materials

We can calibrate or test any component, instrument or equipment that has been exposed to radiation and continues to have a fixed level of radioactivity. Instruments can vary from valves to pressure switches, multimeters and more.

Radiation Protection Instrument Calibration

We understand how important it is that your rad pro equipment accurately performs for the safety of your personnel and facility. Our team is equipped to calibrate your rad pro equipment no matter if it’s clean or contaminated, as we are dedicated to delivering quality in everything we do.


Calibration Services We Provide

With our in-house hot lab, we can calibrate and test your components (both clean and radiologically controlled) safely and provide reliable results every time for you. Here are some of the calibration services we provide:

Importance of Finding a Qualified Lab

Finding a qualified lab to conduct quality measurements and testing is important for many reasons. First, the accuracy of the results depends on the quality of the measurements and calibration. Secondly, if the results are not accurate, it can affect the environmental safety of your facility and employees.

As a full-service calibration laboratory, we adhere to different quality requirements. When working with contaminated equipment, our processes follow more strict standards. Constellation PowerLabs is licensed by federal agencies to have “controlled” contaminated equipment in several labs located at our main headquarters. Our radiation calibration is completed according to NC3 323 specifications.


What is the Process of Calibration?

The process of calibration is verifying the accuracy of an instrument’s measurement. It is important to ensure that measurements are accurate to make informed decisions as well as support production. The calibration process can be divided into two main parts:


1. Establishing the accuracy of a measurement, which involves verifying that the instrument is providing accurate results.


2. Verifying the accuracy of a measurement, which involves comparing the results of the instrument to known standards.


How to Find a Lab That Can Perform Calibration and Testing on Both Rad Pro and Radiologically Controlled Instruments

Finding a qualified calibration and testing lab can be a task. However, with the help of the internet and a little detective work, it is possible to find a reputable company. There are a few things to keep in mind when searching for a calibration company. First, check to see that the company has a good reputation. Second, make sure that the company is qualified to perform the work and that they meet your quality requirements.
