Magnetic Compass & Barometer Calibration

We at UK Marine, have a team of professionals consisting of Master Mariners, Marine Engineers and Naval Architects with extensive experience in marine activities. One of our activities include compass adjustment and barometer calibration.

Magnetic Compass Adjustment

The main reason for compass adjustment and the issue of a new deviation table is an increase in deviations due to various reasons. Inspections by the Port State Control, Vetting Inspectors and Flag State Audits can also create a requirement for compass calibration.

Our scope of work in compass adjustment includes the following:

  • Pre-inspection
  • Certified ships compass service and repair
  • Compass spares
  • Onboard compass adjustment
  • Magnetic compass exchange /  temporary loan
  • Issuance of deviation card

Barometer Calibration

Every barometer can be set to be precisely correct at one pressure. The pressure chosen for this setting at the time of calibration is usually in the range of 1010 to 1016 mb, corresponding to the range of average pressures at sea level

Ships barometer requires annual calibration to verify the error and to be applied to daily observation. We offer our service to calibrate your vessel's barometer and ensure precise output to the entire satisfaction of the Master.
