Testing services

Hukseflux not only supplies instruments, but offers testing services as well: material characterisation and calibration. We are equipped to perform measurements for customers in our own material characterisation laboratory. Material characterisation services involve thermal conductivity, contact resistance and thermal resistivity. Our worldwide calibration and servicing organisation is at your disposal for sensor calibration, not only for pyranometers of the Hukseflux brand.

Please find some examples of typical measurements, references, an overview of calibration capabilities and a request form for our testing services below.

Paint thermal conductivity measurement

Measurement of thermal conductivity of thin layers, for instance paint, is a challenge.

Traditional methods lead to measurement results that are too low because the contact resistance is part of their measurement. Hukseflux has the means to analyse without significant contact resistance. Our lab carries out thermal conductivity measurements of thin layers of insulating paint for many of the world’s paint manufacturers.

Soil thermal resistance measurement

How to guarantee the quality of soil thermal conductivity measurement?

Hukseflux developed traceable reference materials (Calibration Reference Cylinders) which are adapted to the needles that are used for soil thermal resistance measurement.

Calibration services

Hukseflux is fully equipped to offer professional calibration services. Our calibration services include traceable calibration of pyranometers of the most common brands, pyrheliometers and heat flux sensors.

Hukseflux indoor calibration systems (according to ISO 9847 Type IIc) are also commercially available. Would you like to know more? Please contact us.
