FluxTeq has the ability to calibrate their heat flux sensors using both radiation and conduction. If a heat flux sensor needs calibration or you are unsure if it is calibrated correctly, contact FluxTeq for their calibration services.
Conduction Calibration Systems
For improved accuracy sensor calibration and precise measurement data, FluxTeq has developed two conduction calibration systems that have been cross-calibrated with each other. In the first, small system, heated and water-cooled plates together with a reference sensor are used to calibrate the test sensor placed between gap pads. A second, larger system includes guarded hot plate equipment and a NIST-certified piece of insulation, used according to C1130.
Radiation Calibration System
A quartz lamp bank is standardized over a range of heat flux settings using a reference sensor. The test sensor is placed on a water-cooled plate, and the lamp is shone over the calibrated range. For different lamp settings, the output sensor voltages are logged, and sensitivity data are obtained for a variety of radiation heat fluxes.
