Laboratory for Temperature

ACTIVITIES

Activities performed at the Laboratory for Temperature are related to:
• Realization, conservation, maintenance and improvement of the national standard for temperature in Montenegro;
• Ensuring metrological traceability in the field of temperature in Montenegro through the transfer of the temperature unit from the national standard to the secondary and working temperature standards;
• Development of the measuring methods for transferring the temperature unit;
• Calibration of glass thermometers, indicator thermometers, thermo-couples air thermometers, temperature and climatic chambers, and calibration done on-site;
• Participation in inter-laboratory comparisons;
• Laying down the prescribed technical and metrological requirements for determining the measuring instrument type for temperature measuring instruments;
• Verification of medical thermometers.


NATIONAL STANDARD

National standard for thermodynamic temperature:
• 25 Ω Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometer (SPRT), Fluke Hart Scientific, type 5681-S, with the measuring range from -190 °C to +660 °C, of measuring uncertainty 3 mK;
• Thermocouple (TC) manufactured by Fluke Hart Scientific, type S and R, with the measuring range from 0 °C to +1450 °C, measuring uncertainty from 0,3 °C to 0,6 °C.


CALIBRATION OF TEMPERATURE STANDARDS AND MEASURING INSTRUMENTS

Accredited area:
• calibration of liquid filled glass thermometers from -80 ºC to +278 ºC;
• calibration of indicator thermometers with probe from -80 ºC to +650 ºC;
• calibration of PRT/IPRT from -80 ºC to +650 ºC;
• calibration of thermo-couples from -80 ºC to +650 ºC;
• calibration of air sensors from -75 ºC to +150 ºC;
• calibration of temperature chambers in the range from -100 ºC to +200 ºC;
• calibration of furnaces in the range from 200 ºC to 1000 ºC;
• calibration of climatic chambers up to 2000 l in the range from 10 ºC to 70 ºC;
• calibration of thermostated medium in the range from -80 ºC to 150 ºC.

Unaccredited area:
• Calibration of contact thermometers in the range from 650 ºC to 1200 ºC.


THE SCOPE OF ACCREDITATION OF THE LABORATORY FOR TEMPERATURE

ATCG HAA 1


VERIFICATION OF MEASURING INSTRUMENTS

Laboratory for Temperature carries out an examination of temperature in order to determine compliance with the prescribed metrological requirements with the aim of verifying the medical and veterinary thermometers.


TYPE APPROVAL OF MEASURING INSTRUMENTS

In order to ascertain compliance with the prescribed technical and metrology requirements, to determine type of measuring instrument, Laboratory for Temperature carries out examination of further measuring instruments in the field of temperature measuring, in accordance with the Decree on legal measuring instruments that are mandatory subjected to verification and/or the type approval of the measuring instrument (Official Gazette of Republic of Montenegro, No. 81/09):
• thermal energy measuring instruments;
• medical and veterinary thermometers.


TRACEABILITY SCHEME

National Standard for temperature and the rest of the equipment are traceable to the national standards of the countries that achieve the given physical quantity on the primary level. Traceability of the measuring metrological results, in the Laboratory for Temperature, for the temperature range from 80 °C to +650 °C is achieved through two 25 Ω standard platinum resistance thermometers (SPRT). Traceability of the measuring metrological results, in the Laboratory for Temperature, for the temperature range from od 650 °C do +1200 °C is achieved through two thermocouples (TC) type R and type S. Laboratory for temperature conducts calibrations of its standards, as well as of the measuring equipment neccessary for achieving traceability, at the NMI Laboratories or authorized institutes (EURAMET Designated Institutes) that have published CMC at BPIM KCDB, or are accredited by an accreditation body signatory to the EA MLA agreement.
