Understandably, in the pressured economic climate, companies want to get the most from the equipment and software that they buy. This can introduce risks of production outages for sites should failures happen and when this risk gets too high, it’s time for a change.


2019 has been an incredibly busy year for Kigtek, our sales and project teams we have been working around the clock to support our customers and their sites needs throughout the year. We have also been developing the company itself by growing our experienced team, completing our Innovate research project, hosting our own Digital Bytes event and working on our new product launch for the coming year.

It has been an exciting year and some of our team shared some of their own highlights of 2019 at Kigtek;

“My highlight of the year has been the variety of projects I have worked on. The fact that all projects are different keeps things interesting and boosts professional development.”

“Winning a highly competitive tender for a project to upgrade the PCS7 control system for a large power station. Not only did we successfully complete the project and save the customer more than £100k, but the high-quality delivery was also featured on the cover of the customer’s internal communications magazine!”

“After 6 months of work we were delighted to launch our new website, demonstrating the breadth of capabilities from our experienced team. “

Another highlight for many was celebrating Kigtek’s 10-year anniversary in March, a night enjoyed by all… here’s to the next!

Our directors have been delighted with the growth of our team as we have brought in new engineers who have contributed to the success of our projects.

“Having joined the company only recently, my highlight so far has been working in a fast-paced but supportive environment. I am looking forward to the opportunities next year presents as we have many exciting things in the pipeline.”

“Looking forward to the exciting launch of our new cask filling system early in 2020 and delivering substantial benefits to the Whisky Industry.”

Thank you to all our customers and suppliers for your continuing support this year, we look forward to working with you in the upcoming year. To all our team at Kigtek, thank you for all your hard work this year! We hope you all have a wonderful time over the festive period.

As Christmas fast approaches, many are starting to wind down for the holidays, however here at Kigtek our busy spell shows no sign of slowing down.

Today we’ll be talking about calibration! Calibration services are one of many services that Kigtek provide and this blog will highlight what calibration is, why it is important and how Kigtek can help you with your calibration needs.

What is calibration?

Calibration is the comparison of a known, standard measurement, and the measurement from your instrument. The comparison is used to identify any differences in these measurements which mean an instrument could be giving out inaccurate information. This can then be rectified by re-calibrating the instrument.

Why do we need to calibrate?

The accuracy and results of instruments tend to drift over time meaning that these instruments must be calibrated to ensure accurate readings. Inaccurate readings can affect areas such as reporting, productivity and safety. Therefore, by ensuring instruments are calibrated companies can maximise process efficiency and optimise production which can lead to an increase in financial return. Effectively calibrating equipment means you can feel confident in gaining reliable, accurate and repeatable measurements. There are a variety of instruments that require calibration over time such as flowmeters, storage tanks, storage vats, pressure transmitters, temperature transmitters and level transmitters.


Where do Kigtek come in?

Kigtek can do onsite calibrations for your site thanks to our portable and accurate calibration rig. This allows calibration at process conditions which reduces downtime and loss of revenue for your site. Kigtek will come to your site, assemble and connect Kigtek’s portable calibration rig and install the unit requiring calibration. We will analyse its current configurations and then zero all meters. The final process involves completing a 6-test point calibration at 3 flow rates which will allow our engineers to adjust your instruments as required to bring into specification.

With years of industry experience Kigtek can provide calibration services to suit your needs whether that be vat calibration, tank calibration or instrumentation calibration. To find out more information on the services and support we provide contact us today!
