DICKEY-john GAC 2500 Service and Calibration
During the service the instrument is thoroughly cleaned and electronically standardised, instrument operating system software is upgraded to the latest version and the national calibration values for UK crops are updated as necessary.
Following standardisation a detailed test report is supplied showing the instrument permittivity characteristics in comparison to the UK reference standard instrument, the IR temperature performance is checked against a UKAS temperature probe, and the internal balance is verified using specialised weights.
The Hectolitre weight calibration is tested in accordance with BS EN ISO 7971-3, samples for this calibration are derived from our National standard 20 Litre chrondometer, a detailed test report and certificate of calibration is supplied, with appropriate instrument labelling.
