Beamex has supplied their powerful Beamex MCS100 Calibration Workstation incorporating panel mounted pressure, electrical and temperature calibration instrumentation, automatically controlled pressure and temperature sources, digital multimetres, soldering equipment, air amplifier and vacuum generator built in to a robust, heavy duty workbench.

Peterhead Power Station manages and documents the workshop calibrations, in addition to those performed around the site using their fleet of Beamex MC5 Multifunction Calibrators, with network-licensed Beamex CMX Calibration Software, installed and centrally administrated by Scottish and Southern Energy across 10 sites in the UK from their IT headquarters in Reading.

Gordon Shand, C&I Team Leader at Peterhead understands that his investment into this essential and high quality suite of instrumentation will be recovered many times by the efficiency gains the plant will benefit from as a result of the automated calibration process and the seamless and electronic flow of data between measurement device and electronically stored calibration result. Gordon commented “So far the bench has proved to be easy to use, more than fit for purpose and has simplified the calibration of our field instruments”.
