SOP on Calibration of Laboratory Oven

 Calibration of Laboratory Oven


1.0 PURPOSE   

      The purpose of the standard operating procedure is to provide guidelines for calibration

      of Laboratory Oven.

2.0 SCOPE 

      The scope of this standard operating procedure includes calibration of Laboratory

4.1  Switch on the instrument.

4.2  Ensure that the temperature indicator/controller is in working condition i.e. the set

       temperature should be maintained / retained properly.

4.3  Ensure that the door of laboratory oven is properly closed and does not     loosen

       during operation.

4.4  Ascertain and set the points/points at which calibration is required.

4.5  Switch on the laboratory oven and allow it to reach the set point temperature.

4.6  Apparatus Required For Calibration:Platinum resistance thermometer with    sensor

       and digital temperature indicator.


4.7.1  Insert the sensor of the reference/calibrator sensor (PRT) in the laboratory oven

          as near as possible to the sensing tip or sensor of the temperature

          controller/indicator of the laboratory oven.

4.7.2  When the temperature is stable note down the temperature reading as indicated by on the laboratory oven and the reference indicator simultaneously.

4.7.3  Take at least three to four readings for better accuracy and reproducibility.

4.7.4   Set the next point and record the temperature readings accordingly.

4.7.5 Correlate the readings observed with the reference standards and apply corrections, if necessary.
