Calibration/ Certification

Equipment Performance and Calibration

How do you make sure that your mass properties instrument performs within factory specifications? Do you need to certify your instrument in order to prove the validity of your test results? Raptor Scientific is here for you. We test and certify mass properties equipment from all manufacturers.

We are NIST certified for the measurements of mass and distances, the two quantities used in mass properties. We recertify your calibration hardware. We use calibrated masses and distances to certify that your instrument is within its accuracy specifications for center of gravity, moment of inertia, product of inertia, and dynamic unbalance measurement. And if it is not, we perform maintenance service on your machine to restore it to original specifications.

Key Benefits

Accuracy of Test Results – Once we certify your instrument, you can be certain that the mass properties measurement results that you get are accurate to within the specifications of the machine.
Accuracy of Verification Method – The accuracy of our verification methods is often more than 10 times the rated performance of the system being evaluated.
Results traceable to Primary Standards – All reported performance values are traceable to the US NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).

Calibration Hardware Certification

All Raptor Scientific equipment comes with calibration hardware. This allows the operator to calibrate the instrument for center of gravity, moment of inertia or product of inertia.

Calibration hardware needs to be recertified periodically. Sending your calibration hardware back to Space Electronics for recertification ensures that your hardware is handled properly, recertified with the same method that was originally used for certification, and compared to original factory values. All our values are certified traceable to NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).
