Aerospace Testing & Pyrometry Receives Accreditation for New Lab


Aerospace Testing & Pyrometry Inc. recently announced that the company has successfully completed the additional scope accreditation to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005, “General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories,” for the new laboratory in Bedford, Ohio. The additional scope of accreditation includes DC current, RTD, DC volts, and thermocouples type K, J, T, R, S, B, N, E, and C for measure and source. The laboratory will be able to calibrate secondary standards and field test instruments to meet the requirements of AMS2750E and other stringent prime pyrometry specifications.

“We want to offer more services to our clients by providing laboratory grade calibration thereby broadening the current scope of work for pyrometry requirements,” said Andrew Bassett, president of Aerospace Testing & Pyrometry, Inc. “Our clients can be assured the level of calibration from our laboratory will match the level of service that we provide in the field.”

Laboratory Accreditation Bureau, a division of A-S-B, conducted a one-day site addition audit on July 12, 2016, with no non-conformances.

Also, Dale Praznik has joined Aerospace Testing & Pyrometry as quality manager and laboratory manager. Praznik brings over 35 years’ experience related to in-house calibration of secondary standard and field test instruments to the company’s new pyrometric metrology calibration laboratory.
