For information on calibrating your burettes within Australia contact burette calibration email.


The burette calibration facility is purpose designed with:

  • anti-vibration table
  • dedicated, precision balances
  • traceable masses
  • monitored temperature, barometric pressure and humidity

Calibration Tip

Water density must be temperature corrected given that one millilitre of pure water has a mass of one gram at 4°C. Corrections must also be applied for humidity and pressure.
