Tulsa Calibrations : Quality
Precision calibrations doing calibrations in Tulsa Cal calibrations Oklahoma and Nate are here with Travis the undertaker. And we’re going to be talking about some more calibrations because calibrations are the thing of the future and we’re doing calibrations for many aerospace and other companies that require calibrations. So today we’re going to be talking about Taso collaborations. That’s right. Tony colorations and so with Tulse calibrations in mind what are some of the things that we can calibrate as Tulsa calibrations calibration company the flux capacitor and the proton thrower.
OK. Right. And the electron bender and the zoomy zoom sucker the dirt transporter. And so the super molecular ion dies in isomers.
Type that one. Yeah. And I like how you spell that. How much of this stuff is in the Tulsa calibrations area though.
So a lot of this stuff is in the Tulse calibrations area.
Well that’s good because you know I’m a sucker for the Tulsa calibrations area.
That’s right. And so we’re going to be calibrating many things in the Tulse calibrations area.
So why don’t we give the listeners an overview of how the generators work in a heat treating.
So I don’t know what the heck do they do. I don’t they just seem like some big old tubes running at like 9300 degrees and it almost seems like they put some kind of pellets into something I don’t I don’t I don’t even know man I really don’t know.
Oh you know what it is.
No what they do is they run natural gas through there and they heat the natural gas up which is really sounds pretty crazy because the heat this gas up to like. 9500 degrees or something like that should get out of it I guess it does something to it. That’s where they get their nitrogen out.
I don’t think so. I think that attitude comes from that big old tank sitting right outside where we park got a big old natural gas. That’s
that’s that’s a good that’s the one that goes the guilt gets cold. I don’t know. I don’t know when it gets cold. Yeah that quench still over there. So what is the liquid that you put your hand in and comes out. It’s gone. Yeah. Liquid nitrogen liquid nitrogen. Yeah. Yeah you’re right so. So also they’re taking the liquid nitrogen and turning it so it’s a property that they need to know.
I think the liquid nitrogen is just stored as a liquid because it’s under pressure. But once they when they’re using it it it’s actually a gas it just turns back to me. Yes. Yeah. Which is why all the on the outside of the tank is all frosted because it’s it’s it’s blowing off and.
Turning into a gas. There’s always icicles on the pipes. Yeah. So yeah. Now they do start with the natural gas they run it through that generator in it and it actually does something to the natural gas when it’s superheated. And I’m not sure exactly what it does but it creates a certain dew point. I know they are monitored dewpoint which is which is the the the moisture the amount of moisture that’s in the gas. So yeah I’m not sure exactly how that works kind of complicated.
But it seems like they use it to carbonized metal when they’re processing the metals will also calibrations area is definitely complicated specially if you are trying to calibrate something that is moving.
Oh yeah. Some things move. Well we do RPM checks. Using a little strobe scope.
What happens if it doesn’t. If it’s not shiny enough.
Well if it’s not shiny The scope is strobe on it. It might just Strober scope itself right out of itself.
Yeah you don’t want that to happen because when that happens Mr. There’s problems. And people are not happy.
So what’s the plan for doing a a accredited calibration on a 7 that’s come in two and three.
So say one more time.
So we’ve got it on the board to do an accredited calibration for 83. Oh
and oh wait no was working on that issue. Yeah.
She just repeated it outside oh oh yeah. You’ve got to do repeatability study right. And then a. Repeatability and a. I’m drawing a blank. Now what the other one is but there is re repeat. Repeatability and a reproducibility. That’s true. Oh yeah. Which really needs to be done on a lot of things. So but that’s one of those things that we just need a little bit more manpower and more manpower because we need to start we need to put together a lengthy list of like gauges and stuff that have different resolution because our uncertainty is different with different resolution and stuff like that. So we have to work on that a little bit more too so we can do the most accurate calibration that is possible by knowing every uncertainty of the measurements of the calibration.
That’s important if you need a really super accurate credit calibration. That’s right.
And that’s something we need to do all the time.
Very accurate. Not all of our customers of them. I credit the calibration.
They just need to be a good calibration. That is true and what is calibration it’s knowing a nonstandard. That’s true. It’s not always about changing something of value or tweaking it it’s just documenting what it actually is based on the most accurate reference standard that you can possibly achieve. Yeah. And there’s different levels of that though too right. There’s different levels of standards and I’m drawing a blank right now as to exactly what those levels are.
But you have your primary standard you have a secondary standard you have a reference standard transfer or standard transfer standard.
Yep those are good. Most of them.
Those are the ones we deal with mostly here in the Tulsa calibrations area yeah those calibrations doing calibrations on all types of colourations calibrations Vernice calibrations Amen’s 20 some 50 ISO 17 0 2 5 calibrations and it’s Friday and we’re here doing our podcast checking things out talking about calibrations.
I’ve had you talk pretty good this time. I really I’ve done a lot of it yeah.
OK we’ll see what else what have we not talked about we should talk about another calibration that we do that we have really talked about and that’s what we’re talking about right. We know we don’t talk about torque much. No we don’t talk about torque and there’s some and there are some there’s some lame torque wrenches out there. Oh yeah there’s some good ones I like I like I like Armstrong. I like Armstrong. I think those he used to be a pretty good and if I recall CDI Yes. These are good ones but there are some really some lame ones and we will we’ll spare bad mouthing too much if you need to know what the torque is everybody you need a good torque wrench because torque is not an exact science anyway.
There’s there’s a fluctuation so you need to start out good to in good.
That’s true and torque calibrations torque wrench colorations is a critical measurement for those that need torque wrenches and we just happened to have one of the most highest accurate machines that you can use especially in the Tulsa calibrations area.
That’s right. Well really any area at all though the one that we have limits most of all human use are air.
That’s true. It’s a good one and it’s it’s a CDI product. It gives you a good workout. It does it but it checks those torque wrenches very accurately. It does. And we need all of our torque wrenches and the Tulsa calibrations community talking right. Yes. We don’t want to torque in but we need them torquing right. That’s right. I mean I’m talking right. So yeah. But the machine we use is a good torque wrench checker as a dooni torquing. It torques all day long man as much as you want to torque it. It’ll torque. I thought it would torque it does torque cool.
Let’s see we’ve got another two minutes here on this. Oh that’s a long time. So what all kinds of ranges of torque can we achieve.
Wow let’s see you torque in torque and torque in different wrenches and different levels of torque. So I don’t know we’ll let’s see we do foot pounds two inch pounds. I don’t think we’d get into ounce pounds. No I didn’t say that right foot. There’s a lot of conversions on there that’s built in.
There is there’s yeah there’s ounce inches not pounds. So it’s foot pounds and pounds or ounce. Or Nutan pounds each ounce ounce Newton Newtons. Oh yes. You know how to convert Newtons to torque. Or foot pounds.
I don’t know the foot pounds. Now I have to look that up. But that’s OK. Also calibration community has got to handle. Oh yes. Are you keeping track of how many times you mention the toast colorations.
No. No. That. Is.
What you will tell the workers. No it’s that’s that’s how many times an angel was created since we’ve been sitting here. Oh man it is special. And the Tulsa calibrations area I see we had a fan. We had a fan calling everybody. This is Travis Knight. We’ll see you next time.
