Aircraft and truck scale calibration often requires special adapters to simulate a tire. Scales come in a variety of sizes and have specific tolerances. Many other calibration laboratories do not use the right adapters or consider the impact of the uncertainty of the reference standard used for calibration.
If you need to certify something is within a tolerance of 0.1 % of applied force, you cannot use a standard with a 0.1 % accuracy. Measurement uncertainty must be taken into account and the further away from a NMI (National Metrology Institute), the larger the uncertainty will become. If the Uncertainty of the measurement is not less than the tolerance required, then there will be significant risk. If you need to get the most accurate measurement out of your scale and minimize risk, the Morehouse Universal Scale Calibrator will meet your needs.
The Morehouse Universal Scale Calibrator was designed to accommodate the large size, high capacity scales that are utilized to weigh aircrafts and heavy weight vehicles. As it applies to any other calibration machine, the Morehouse Universal Scale Calibrator is as accurate as the reference standard (load cell or proving ring) with which it is used.
Morehouse Universal Scale Calibrators are designed to speed up the calibration and certification of scales, while maintaining the high degree of accuracy required for proper certification. The calibrator can be used to calibrate all kinds of truck and aircraft scales. Some scales include:
