Happy Holidays | Year in Retrospect


As the year comes to a close and we celebrate this time with our families and friends, all of us at Dwyer want to give a big thank you to the customers and teammates that we’ve depended on throughout the year. We certainly couldn’t have done it without you.

This year has been unlike any other, to say the least. The COVID-19 pandemic shook the world as hospitals and emergency personnel struggled to keep up with demand for ventilators and isolation rooms. Worldwide manufacturing slowed, as non-essential businesses shut down and companies shifted to CDC guidelines and recommendations. Continue reading “Happy Holidays | Year in Retrospect”

Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty

In the world of metrology, measurement uncertainty and its level of impact on calibration plays a huge role in decisions about what products to purchase, along with who to receive calibration services from. Minimizing measurement uncertainty is key for anyone making critical measurements, but many may be confused about what measurement uncertainty is and how to determine the significance of an assigned value.

ISO/IEC 17025 Calibration in Food and Agriculture

World Accreditation Day

Yesterday (June 9, 2020) marked this year’s World Accreditation Day, which is a global initiative established by the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) to promote the value of accreditation.

This year’s focus was on how accreditation improves food safety, supporting the confidence of consumers, suppliers, purchasers, regulators and specifiers in the quality and safety of food [1]. When it comes to ensuring food safety, consumers and suppliers rely on their equipment and calibration providers to comply with the appropriate international standards, such as ISO/IEC 17025:2017. 

Attaining accreditation status to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is a rigorous process that ensures that the technical competence of personnel, the ethics of personnel, and the reliability of the organization itself are at a level that can be recognized on an international scale. The Dwyer Instruments, Inc. Engineering Laboratory is proud to be able to provide ISO/IEC 17025:2017, ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 and ANSI/NCSL Z540.3 Section 5.3 accredited calibrations on pressure products that are used in these critical food safety environments.
