Aviation and Aerospace

In the aviation and aerospace industry, reliability and safety for all measuring equipment is paramount. As a result, there are high reliability demands for sensors and other components. Furthermore, vibration resistance, but also operation over wide temperature ranges are important. Sensors are subject to high accuracy requirements which must be verified regularly.

With Trigas, these customers are at the right address. Here your requirements are understood. As a result, calibration of your measuring equipment is carried out carefully to the highest precision.

It is not without reason that major airlines worldwide have their flow meters tested and calibrated by TrigasFI. Some also operate flow test stands designed and manufactured by the Trigas group.

Well-known customers from the aerospace and land base power generation industry also use our services. Many are equipped with Trigas built test benches for the critical testing of turbine blades and vanes.

Measuring accurately under changing climatic conditions?

The TrigasFI laboratories are specialized in calibrating turbine flow meters for all fluids, including fuels and cooling media with a special UVC (Universal Viscosity Curve) so that you can trust your sensors in the laboratory as well as in field tests regardless of ambient and operating conditions. Please specify the medium or the corresponding temperature/viscosity table in your inquiry and ask for our UVC calibration.

DAkkS ISO 17025 accredited Calibrations

Throughout the industry, DAkkS calibrations are more and more frequently requested because they guarantee traceability to national and international standards. ISO/IEC 17025 is in principle the “book” for all calibration laboratories. There are many similarities with ISO 9000, but ISO 17025 is much more concrete and direct about procedures and standards and how they relate to the competence of a calibration laboratory.

We are DAkkS accredited not only for calibrations that we perform in our Neufahrn Lab, but for on-site calibrations as well, performed at your locations.

You can download our accreditation certificates here. In the annexes you will find a listing of certified uncertainties and can use this information to determine if the laboratory meets your requirements.

Trigas offers you here one of the highest accuracy standards with one of the widest measuring ranges.

Onsite-Calibration for Aviation Customers

Sometimes, critically important systems cannot be removed from their location and sent the laboratory for calibration. In such cases, TrigasFI comes to you. Our technicians regularly visit the premises of Aviation industry clients worldwide to carry out on-site calibrations. With suitable preparation not only the measuring instrument itself but also complete measurement assembly can be calibrated. Most importantly, this allows installation effects to be taken into account, resulting in even more accurate measurement results.

Gases: We offer accredited flow calibration on our Sonic Nozzle test benches up to 20000 Nl/min. With two primary Bell Provers and Laminar Flow Element test benches we can calibrate as low as 0.1 Nml/min.

We calibrate not only with air, but also with many non-hazardous gases. Please contact our lab for details.

Liquids: We calibrate with our accredited Displacer/Piston calibrators over a range from 0.00005 l/min (0.05 ml/min) up to 2000 l/min. With these primary flow standards we calibrate with an overall accuracy of 0.04 % of the measured value.

With our high-flow water loop we can calibrate at flows up to 5000 l/min.

Our service for the Aviation industry

In addition to calibration we also service and repair your instruments. If it is not possible to do so directly in our premises or, we gladly organize repairs with the original manufacturers for you. As a result you receive your instruments back fully functional and calibrated.

If a repair is no longer economically viable, we will be happy to provide objective, non-partisan advise on a replacement instruments. If you wish, we will also procure and independently calibrate the replacement equipment.

Our service offering to you is complemented by our own flow test bench design and construction. As well as manufacturer-independent consulting and flow training seminars.
