Flow, Pressure and Air Velocity Calibration Services

Young Calibration is one of the UK’s leading calibration service providers for gas flow, fluid flow, air velocity, pressure, humidity, temperature, electrical and mass parameters.

Ultrasonic Clamp-On Flowmeter Calibration

Extended flow calibration range for both water flowmeter calibration rigs now enables the calibration of a larger range of the popular ultrasonic clamp on flowmeters. Having been restricted to a few pipe diameters for the clamp on meters, the facility now has pipe diameters covering 10 to 150 mm line size allowing for the calibration of clamp-on meters that require the larger pipe diameter for a successful installation. Ultrasonic clamp on flowmeter calibrations can be performed on many of the leading manufacturers including, GE Druck, RS Hydro, Panametrics, Micronics, Flexim, Siemens, Krohne, Sierra, Flotec UK, Katronic, Sonic Pro and Eesiflo. All flowmeter calibrations can be reported in customer units for either volume flow or fluid velocity. Alternatively, velocity calibrations can be completed on our hydrocarbon rig when required.

Oxygen “Oil Free” Pressure Calibration services for LOX and GOX systems utilised in the medical, marine, aviation, submarine, offshore and space environments. The ISO Class 6 cleanroom provides a dedicated facility for oxygen clean systems only, with a full sweep of cleaning, inspection, analysis and packing solutions for all customers. Understanding the bespoke requirements for specific application areas the facility offers all the requirements of gauge inspection, cleaning, calibration, analysis, packing and labelling.

Having to please its’ range of customer demands, the company offers a range of oxygen clean solvents for cleaning, flushing and extraction, with gravimetric, white light, black light, microscopic particle analysis and FTIR spectroscopy.  Working to several industry specific standards including ASTM G93, MIL-STD-1330D, EIGA and SITA the company can tailor its process to suit individual cleanliness level requirements. Full system documentation, traceability, certification and timestamped results analysis are available for the complete package. Coupled with the recent addition of UKAS accredited calibrations for oxygen clean, “oil free” gauges and sensors the facility now offers a complete one stop shop for pressure gauges and transducers from MEL, WIKA, King Nutronics, BOC, Budenberg, Stanhope Seta, Ashford, Sensorone and McMaster-Carr.


Gas Flow Calibration for all mass flowmeter and volume flow meters, including the popular rotameter (VA), MFC, MFM, laminar, vortex, turbine, thermal, piston and differential sensors. The ISO 17025 UKAS accredited laboratory ranges from 1 cc/min to 4500 m3/hr, enabling the calibration of the smallest leak testers to 12” diameter vortex meters and averaging pitot duct flowmeters. Dedicated flow lines are available for traceable calibrations on inert gases and atmospheric air for balometers and fume hood flow sensors, with further flow rigs setup for the bespoke flow calibration of air samplers and air sampling pumps and flowmeters utilised in the environmental sectors.

Hydraulic Oil Flow Calibration covering 0.5 to 440 l/min on mineral oil with a viscosity range of 5 – 20 cSt for the calibration of all hydraulic flowmeters, including turbines, positive displacement, gear, helical and coriolis flowmeters. Further non-accredited flow calibrations can be completed on ISO 4113, IPA, JET-A1, AVGAS and dielectric fluids. A comprehensive range of aviation fuels and oils are available locally for quick turnaround calibrations. Having a complete range of transfer standard flowmeters backed up with gravimetric primary standard the Youngs’ laboratory is one the UK’s most versatile facilities offering quick, reliable and cost-effective meter calibration.

UKAS Anemometer Calibration for ultrasonic, thermal, vane, rotating cup, pitot tube, isokinetic probes, CTA’s and yaw probes covering 0.05 to 80 m/s. The accredited open and closed jet wind tunnels allow for complete air velocity profiling using 2D laser doppler anemometry and the determination and characterisation of anemometer blockage correction. The low velocity range of 0.05 m/s allows for accurate calibration of omni-spherical probes, CTA’s and thermal anemometers. Air velocity calibrations of stack emissions isokinetic sampling probes, L pitot tubes, S Pitot tubes and the generation of pitot tube coefficients, gamma and/or K factors up to an air velocity of 80 m/s.  The internal laboratory procedures cover the requirements for emissions sampling to ISO 10780 and ISO 3966 and the requirements of the Source Testing Association (STA).
