Choose to ignore calibration service, you’re risking your life

Gas detector calibration is not particularly challenging or a time-consuming process, in fact, it only takes a couple of minutes.

The difficult part is finding the time in your tight schedule to stop and maintain a gas detector which seems to be working ok. 

Gas detection instrument manufacturers’ calibration recommendations are based on many factors, one being sensor drift.

Sensor drift is the natural tendency of a sensor’s performance to degrade over time as its components age. This is an undeniable fact for electrochemical sensor technology.

Gas sensors can drift as much as <2% to <5% per month. In other words, a sensor that detected 100ppm immediately after calibration may read as low as 95ppm after one month while ignoring the impact of other environmental factors.

Sensor specifications are based on laboratory testing; however, performance will worsen if they’re constantly subjected to challenging applications and environments.

One way to ensure proper instrument performance and reduce maintenance hassles is book your gas detectors into a service and calibration maintenance program with a1-cbiss.

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

Prices start at just £25 and express delivery available for those who require a fast turnaround.

Don’t let a few minutes of maintenance get in the way of a life-saving device.
