Laboratory Instruments

Brookfield recommends our annual Calibration & Certification Service (C&CS) for your laboratory instruments to ensure optimum operating conditions. We can perform this service on site at your facility or you can return your instrument to our Repair. If your instrument requires any additional repairs, we will contact you before we will perform the necessary work. These charges will be included on your invoice. Turnaround time is generally within 48 hours.

Our Service Department will inspect for wear perform a cleaning and adjustment of the internal mechanisms, replace pivot support and pointer shaft (if required) and straighten spindles (if required). We calibrate and certify (in writing) that your instrument is operating within proper Brookfield specifications. This certification states that your instrument has been calibrated with standards which are traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

For Texture Analyzers, we also inspect for wear, clean, adjust and lubricate internal mechanisms, and adjust, if necessary, the zero and span for proper load cell performance. Certified calibration weights can also be purchased for your texture analyzer.

Now is the right time to replace your viscosity standard fluids. Brookfield recommends that you replace your viscosity standards on an annual basis.

Special Instrument Testing per Customer Specification

When sending your instrument to Brookfield for the Calibration and Certification Service, there may be additional tests that you would like Brookfield to perform. One example is a calibration check using a viscosity standard fluid similar to the one you use in your laboratory. This testing can be requested when the instrument is returned to Brookfield. Complete test results will be included with the instrument when you receive it back at your facility. Our standard hourly rate for lab services will apply.
