Gas Detection

How often does my gas detector need to be calibrated?

Jul 08 2015

The calibration frequency for gas detection instruments really depends on the instrument use. If a gas detector has been subject to high gas concentrations or unusual conditions, it is generally recommended that a bump test or calibration be performed.

At a1-cbiss, we recommend that gas detection equipment is calibrated at least every six months for a reliable performance. The calibration cycle can be extended for gas monitoring instruments that successfully pass the bump gas test prior to use.

The a1-cbiss Service Centre offers service, repair and calibration for a full range of gas detection services, including area monitoring, single, multi or fixed gas detection - a key activity to ensure your gas monitoring equipment is compliant. 

a1-cbiss are an approved service centre for RAE Systems, Industrial Scientific, Scott Safety and BW Honeywell.

A good service and calibration routine also gives you the peace of mind that you can rely on your gas detector in the event of toxic or flammable gas exposure.
