Multiple Calibration Systems
We have the capabilities to calibrate our heat flux sensors with both radiation and conduction calibration systems.
Do you have a heat flux sensor that you're unsure is accurately calibrated? Inquire about our calibration services.
Radiation Calibration System
A reference sensor is used to calibrate a quartz lamp bank over a range of heat flux settings. The test sensor is then mounted to a water-cooled plate and the lamp shines on it over the calibrated range. Output sensor voltages is recorded for various lamp settings and sensitivity data is taken for a range of radiation heat fluxes.
Conduction Calibration Systems
Two conduction calibration systems have been developed by FluxTeq and cross-calibrated against each other to ensure accurate measurement data and high accuracy sensor calibration. A small system uses heated and water-cooled plates and a reference sensor to calibrate a test sensor sandwiched between gap pads.
A larger system is also used according to C1130. It consists of a guarded hot plate apparatus and NIST certified piece of insulation.
