Shortridge Instruments, Inc.

Calibration Certification and Compliance

Standard calibration includes NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) traceable certification for both "As Received" and "Final" readings.

The Shortridge Instruments, Inc. Calibration Program complies with ANSI/NCSL Z540-1, ISO 17025, and MIL-STD 45662A.


PLEASE NOTE - If a meter is over 20 years old, and has not been returned to Shortridge Instruments, Inc. for service during the past two years, an evaluation fee of $75.00 will be required if the customer chooses to NOT have the meter repaired and recalibrated, OR if it is determined that the meter cannot be repaired.

If the meter is recalibrated/repaired, the evaluation fee will be waived or if prepaid, applied to the cost of the recalibration.

The meter over 20 years old may be traded-in on a new meter at a 10% discount, and the evaluation fee will also be waived.

Members of either NEBB or AABC are not subject to this evaluation fee unless the meter is sent in repeatedly without repair.
