Meriam Process expands application group, calibration lab

Nov 12, 2004

Meriam Process Technologies has expanded its Application Engineering Group and added to its expansive, ISO 9002 and ISO/IEC 17025 accredited on-site laboratory.

The Engineering Group will be led by Leo Buckon, Application Engineering Manager, and Dave Thomas, Group Marketing Manager. The organization of this long-standing Meriam discipline — applications specific engineering — into a separate business function reflects a continuing evolution in the industry, that is, more customers requiring turnkey and single source accountability for solutions to their process applications.

"Meriam’s expansion of its Application Engineering Group organizes into a service function the 93 years of experience we have to offer," states John Gajewski, general manager for Meriam Process Technologies.


"If a customer calls with an application question in our field of expertise, we will advise them how to do it," says Dave Thomas. "If they need a standard equipment solution within Meriam’s product portfolio, we will offer it. However, if they just need advice, a custom product, or a software solution, our Applications Engineering Group’s flexible structure will allow us to immediately create results, with the customer’s needs driving the process."

The calibration division, which provides repair, remanufacturing and accredited calibration of instruments, has also added a worldwide, on-site support network. Meriam’s 17025 accredited on-site laboratory offers a broad selection of standards for use in calibrating flow, pressure, temperature, current, voltage and more. While strictly adhering to rigid quality standards to ensure repeatability and accurate results, Meriam performs calibration of their own new and existing products, as well as products from other manufacturers.

Meriam’s full-service calibration laboratory has a wide variety of capabilities, features and specialties. A Lindgren RF Enclosure Room and many other extensive resources are available. Additionally, all standards are traceable to N.I.S.T, calibration labels are affixed to each item and easy-to-read computer generated forms are provided to customers.

Meriam offers five-day turnaround on most calibration or maintenance services.
