UKAS Accredited Flow Calibration and Testing Laboratory

The Young Calibration laboratory provides UKAS accredited calibration (Laboratory 0604) services and thermal fluid and component testing services to a wide scope of industries whilst maintaining a reputation for quality, cost effectiveness, impartiality and reliability. Our specialist UKAS accreditation offerings for aviation, automotive, medical, environmental and pharmaceutical sectors provide worldwide acceptance for many of the ASTM, EPA, ISO, BSI, DIN and SAE standardized test protocols.

As our name implies, we are a young, vibrant and professional firm employing cutting edge technology for the benefit of our clients.

At the same time we have unrivaled knowledge and experience in our fields of expertise, covering Calorimetric Heat Exchanger Testing, UKAS Air Flow Calibration, UKAS Fluid Flow Calibration, UKAS Air Velocity Calibration, Component Cleanliness, Component Durability and Thermal Fluid system testing. With many years of solid experience between the engineering staff, clients can be assured of a quality and professional service.

Young Calibration specialises in the areas of flow meter calibration, air velocity measurement and thermal systems, and provides their expertise to an abundance of industry specific clients. Three departments cover the range of calibration services on offer, namely the Calibration Laboratory, the Thermal Fluids Test Laboratory and the Component Cleanliness Laboratory.

The Calibration Laboratory houses twelve specialist flow rigs, for gas flow, air flow, water flow, oil flow, fuel flow and is complimented with calibration and testing facilities for air velocity, pressure, temperature, humidity, electrical, mass, torque and acceleration. Two ISO Class 6 cleanrooms provide critical areas for oil free, oxygen pressure calibration services and microscopic particle analysis tasks.

The Thermal Fluids Test Laboratory houses two calorimetric heat exchanger wind tunnels and component test rigs for burst, ageing, acid resistance, thermal cycling, thermal shock, pulsation, pressure cycling, altitude, corrosion, erosion, SWAAT, vibration, bump, leak, flow vs dP, hot soak and cold soak.

The Component Cleanliness Laboratory occupies an ISO Class 6 Clean room, undertaking a sweep of tests to ISO 16232 standard, with washing, flushing, flow benches, extraction and analysis. Particle analysis can be conducted using a range of analysis techniques and instrumentation from online optical particle analysis, microscopic analysis, ELSP (Evaporative Light Scattering Detection) for solvents and UV Spectrometry.

All our test rig instrumentation is calibrated to recognised standards in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025, meaning all equipment is traceable to National Standards. The Calibration laboratory also holds UKAS accreditation for a variety of parameters (Laboratory 0604) and has worldwide recognition via the ILAC-MRA mutual cooperation agreement.

Young Calibration have allowed us to reduce our supplier base, choose between UKAS accredited and standard traceable calibrations, provide an excellent cost effective service, cover all our anemometer, wind tunnel test rigs and flow meters with their onsite calibration service using out of hours support and have proved to deliver a significant reduction in our test rig downtime.
