Viscosity

v1Viscosity Laboratory has developed high accuracy capability to support national viscosity measurement activities. The laboratory is also responsible to provide traceability in viscosity measurement in the country to the primary standard of viscosity. The chart illustrates the traceability scheme for viscosity measurement.

v2v3The highest standard maintained in the laboratory is Ubbelohde type Master Viscometer which is being utilized as a primary method for the transparent liquid viscosity measurement. A set of viscosity standards oil ranging from (0.9 to 85,000) mm²/s for kinematic viscosity and (0.7 to 75,000) mPa.s for dynamic viscosity enable NMIM to provide traceability for viscosity measurement at the temperature range of (20 to 100) °C. 

Radiation Thermometry

rt1Various applications of radiation thermometry encompasses Malaysia’s 12 National Key Economic Area (NKEAs) particularly the Oil & Energy, Palm & Oil, Tourism, Electronics & Electrical, Agriculture and Healthcare. NMIM’s Radiation Thermometry Laboratory is responsible for maintaining and disseminating Malaysia's standards for accurate non-contact temperature measurement in many sectors that spans from medical - human body, food safety - frozen food to manufacturing - metal production.

Thermocouple Thermometry

rt1

tt2Thermocouple Laboratory of National Metrology Institute of Malaysia (NMIM) is responsible to maintain the national measurement standards for Malaysia in the field of thermocouple for temperature range from 0 °C to 1450 °C. The laboratory also  responsible to ensure that all of the thermocouple measurement and calibration are traceable and complied with International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90). 

The calibration services offer all types of thermocouple probe and thermocouple wire. Other services include site calibration of tube furnaces, autoclaves and heat enclosures. 

Humidity

h1Humidity Laboratory has developed high accuracy capability to support national air temperature and humidity measurement activities. The laboratory also responsible to ensure temperature and humidity measurements in the country meet and comply with global measurement standards.
