Our services


The Centre maintains three weight sets (two E2 and one F1) and a one tonne stainless steel weight calibrated by the National Physical Laboratory. Calibration starts from a 1 milligram stainless steel weight (almost too small to see) to one tonne cast iron block weights. We also offer a weights hire service.


We can calibrate volume measures and pipettes from 1ml to 20 litres. Calibrations are done gravimetrically and calculated taking into account water temperature, vessel temperature and air density. We provide accurately calibrated equipment to inspectors from six local authorities.


The centre maintains UKAS certified platinum resistance thermometers which operate with temperature controlled baths in the rage of -30ºC to 250ºC.

Temperature ranges:

-30 ºC to 5 ºC
5 ºC to 70 ºC
70 ºC to 250 ºC

Room/fridge thermometers can also be calibrated in the range -1ºC to 40ºC.


Our length standards have been tested by the National Weights and Measures Laboratory. We can test up to 30m by direct comparison.


We have an air deadweight tester UKAS calibrated in both bar and pounds per square inch. Pressure gauges can be calibrated up to 100 pounds per square inch or 10 bar. Tyre pressure gauges can be calibrated up to 150 pounds per square inch.

Weighbridge Test Unit

The Centre operates a 46 tonne Weighbridge Test Unit which operates throughout the country. It carries 20 x 1 tonne block weights and a fork lift truck to move the weights. The weights are adjusted to ±50g tolerance (50% test weight tolerance) and are adjusted against a 1-tonne stainless steel weight certificated by the National Physical Laboratory.
