WHAT WE DO
Control Technic is providing repair and calibration service for all brands and models of oil discharge monitoring equipments.
To continue this , having all necessary calibration kits , sample waters and procedures are the requirements.
We advice onboard calibration instead of laboratory. This will keep safe oil content meter and save it from wrong re-installation after calibration.
