Running routine service maintenance at the end, or beginning, of the year helps to ensure necessary maintenance is not overlooked. As we all work to close out the year we have year-end close tasks and checklists to run through and complete before we turn the page to a new year. Adding your routine maintenance checks for all your laboratory equipment and consumables to your year end checklist helps ensure they are all set to go for the new year!
It is imperative to conduct routine maintenance for your viscometers and VROC® chips. We recommend recalibrationof yourVROCchips and viscometer once a year. RheoSense engineers make sure to follow our careful in-house calibration standards of procedures to make sure each and every RheoSense product is well within specifications.
On top of routine service and calibration of your instruments, it is also recommended to routinely review testing methods with all technicians who operate a piece of equipment. Comparing the standards that everyone has run to see if there are any differences will help to determine how accurately your instruments are performing. To monitor VROC chip health we first turn to NIST traceable oils. NIST is the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which is an agency providing the framework for accurate measurements via various tools, standard reference materials, and certification of analysis.
