Morehouse Instrument Company can be of service to you with almost a century of experience as a company in force calibration equipment and services. We can help you establish a complete in-house force standards laboratory. We can also provide periodic ISO 17025 accredited by A2LA, calibration of your load cells, torque cells, force gauges, or other force measuring systems with instruments from 0.1 LBF to 2,250,000 LBF.  Our lab features dead weight primary standards for calibration up to 120,000 LBF for force calibration, and a primary torque standard (purchased from NPL) accurate to 0.002 % of applied torque to 2 kN-m.

Your measurement uncertainty is directly affected by the standard used to perform the calibration.   Morehouse primary standards have uncertainties that are typically 10 – 50 times better than accredited calibration service suppliers using secondary standards.

Force Calibration Uncertainty

Note: The 10,000 LBF load cell with a Type A Uncertainty  of 0.5 LBF is for K= 2.4 (This is from ASTM E74) when we figure estimated uncertainty K = 2 is used.

If you have any questions, or want to request a detailed summary of our products or services, we would like to hear from you.
