Tank Calibration in Thailand

Calibration is the science of determining the exact true volume of a containment system corresponding to a certain measurement value. It is the key to obtaining accurate measurements of quantity. Without accurate calibration tables, even the best gauging systems and the most accurate manual measurement are of little value. With SGS as its calibration partner, Scomi Oil Tools is making sure it receives the highest degree of measurement accuracy in order to maintain customer confidence and eliminate the potential for consequential failures.

Accurate quantity measurement is crucial in worldwide trading. SGS is providing Scomi Oil Tools expert tank calibration services to determine precise measurement and verification of tank capacities and volumes in support of guaranteeing contractual obligations to Scomi Oil Tools customers.
