Highest precision in the inspection & maintenance of Radiation measurement devices
For custody transfer measurement tasks, we offer certified devices that have undergone type examination by the PTB. Conformity with the requirements of the German Measurement and Calibration Act (Mess- und Eichgesetz, MessEG), the German Measurement and Calibration Ordinance (Mess- und Eichverordnung, MessEV) and with the type of construction described in the type approval is certified for the respective device by GRAETZ after a product test with a certificate of conformity from a nationally recognized conformity assessment body (calibration office) and a declaration of conformity. As a service, we also offer the inspection or maintenance of devices subject to calibration and the subsequent handling of recurring calibration.
In a special service area approved by the authorities, we are able to carry out repair and maintenance work on contaminated equipment. However, in accordance with radiation protection legislation (StrlSchG / StrlSchV) and for the protection of our employees, these must be explicitly marked as such by the sender and notified to us in advance.
The verification at our site in Altena, Westphalia, is carried out with an officially approved calibration facility for Radiation measurement devices, which is equipped with several radiation sources up to 16.7 TBq (450 Ci) 137Cs (single and nominal activity) and traceable to the national standards of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt.
