Our professional expertise has come from this industry since 1988. We offer our technical help back to your company with passion, willingness and desire to help your company solve thermal spray technical issues starting with annual accuracy checks/calibrations. Our team has 48 years of combined study with expertise value!

Choose Universal Thermal for all your N.I.S.T. Calibration Service needs.

Reasons for Choosing Universal Thermal Services Inc.

1.  We calibrate with using the actual gases used in your processes.

  • N.I.S.T. [National Institute of Standards & Technologies] calibrated equipment.
  • No error from conversion of nitrogen or air to actual gases.

2.  Leaks: Are a cause for safety and coating failures. We check for leaks and repair any found.

  • We are concerned for everyone’s safety.
  • Aspiration of air can cause coating failures, making quality gas to become bad gas via moisture and nitrogen.

3. Check flows from 5 to 10 points depending on meter range.

  • The others check 3 to 4 points only.

4.  Provide OEM original “Flow Conversions” when using different pressures from spec are used in parameters.

  • Specifications are stamped on the tube’s scale.
  • We use the OEM flow conversions to calibrate with.
  • These conversions were published on the web at one time.

5.  UTS Cert. graphs are colored for easily identification:

  • Set Point
  • As Found
  • As Left values

6.  Our Certs show + or – SCFH and Pressure deviations from any Set Point.

7.  Our Certs show + or -, % of Deviation of Full Scale.

  • Color codes:
    • Up to 3% Green [Good]
    • 3.1 to 5 % Orange [Acceptable Caution]
    • 5.1% and up, Red [Fail].
  • If Mass Flow Controlled System the color code is:
    • Up to 2% Green [Good],
    • 2.1 to 3.0 % Orange [Acceptable Caution]
    • 3.1% and up, Red [Fail].

8.  Our certs link all the information to each page of the cert for no errors:

  • The cert #
  • Customer
  • Console Serial #
  • Booth ID #
  • NIST Instruments Used
  • The Form #
  • Rev #
  • Related Work Instructions #
  • Date of Calibration
  • Date of Next Calibration Due
  • Device Under Test ID [if applicable]

9.  We train operators having thermal spray questions, to improve their knowledge.

10.  If the system is a critical orifice system, we provide the flows thru those orifices, in scfh, at each given pressure of the gauge to its orifice.

  • We are the only calibration group that does provide flows through orifices, that we are aware of.
  • We have found plugged orifices not giving any gas through them.

11.  We attempt to stock 2 of every device we calibrate.

  • If something failed calibration, one can be flown in next day air.
  • If it can’t get there while our technician is at your facility, it will be calibrated in our lab and sent to your maintenance department for installation.
  • We will provide an updated cert after the installation has been completed. Note: It Must Be Gas Tight After Installation!
