Driving Quality in Our Temperature Calibrations
Temperature calibrations are an important process for any industry. The variable nature of temperature, by definition, makes it one of the more challenging characteristics of the physical world to accurately measure and quantify. Yet, precise levels of heat and/or cold are necessary for certain industry processes to be carried out successfully.
For this reason, temperature is a parameter that must be frequently measured during many industrial processes, not only for quality assurance but in some cases for regulatory compliance. That is why performing routine temperature calibrations on your equipment is important to maintaining consistency and productivity.
Various mechanical sensors and electronic thermometers in use must be routinely tested and verified for baseline readings which can be compared to an officially recognized, national standard. When an instrument is being used, especially in more extreme temperatures, it can cause the reading to drift.
Quality Temperature Calibrations and Accreditations
Constellation PowerLabs is A2LA accredited for ISO 17025 calibrations and also meets the quality requirements for ANSI/NCSL Z540-1 and ISO 9001. As an approved Nuclear Supplier, we are regularly audited by NUPIC and NIAC which satisfy the requirements for 10 CFR 50, Appendix B and 10 CFR 21.
A Wide Degree of Capabilities
Constellation PowerLabs calibration services meet a considerable breadth of operational measurements across multiple industries, most of which are currently accredited. Working with our team, you will receive quality, consistency, and accuracy as we thoroughly test, adjust, and verify temperature measuring equipment.

Take a look behind the scenes of our calibration services.
Here in the temperature lab, Dawn Munion, is demonstrating how Constellation PowerLabs performs temperature calibrations, specifically thermometers.
Constellation PowerLabs team offers a diverse array of temperature calibration capabilities. The range of items to which these services are applicable is considerable, and includes (up to 1,200º C) calibration baths, dry-well calibrators, indicators, ovens, recorders, simulators, SPRTs, RTDs, thermistors, thermocouples, thermometers, thermometry bridges, infrared thermometers and cameras, surface pyrometers and more.
Our Calibration Process Procedures
Once an instrument is received, a highly trained technician from Constellation PowerLabs will review the standard protocol testing format and, if necessary, create a testing format to utilize before the temperature calibration. The technicians will then use a detailed cross-referencing protocol to ensure testing specifications are met – whether based on manufacturer specifications or a set of parameters specified by the customer.
Each calibration service is performed by an experienced team of highly trained technicians, using NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) traceable or other recognized standards.
Constellation PowerLabs is a full-service calibration laboratory dedicated to building meaningful partnerships with our customers. For us, we are focused on delivering quality and providing excellent service each and every time.
