Gas detection – RAE portable gas monitors

As an authorised distributor for the RAE portable gas monitors, Ashtead Technology has invested heavily in a new service and calibration facility.

The company’s Letchworth-based service team has received comprehensive training by RAE and the new service and calibration workshop is fully equipped with all the necessary specialist tools and spares, in addition to a wide range of calibration gases. Service manager Dave Mills explains: “We are now able to service and calibrate the entire range of RAE toxic gas monitors, in addition to the other gas detectors and monitors that we rent or sell to customers.”

Ashtead Technology says the calibration facility has been stocked with certified calgas bottles for all of the most common gases, including VOCs, CO, CO2, NO, NO2, H2S, LEL (CH4) and Isobutylene, and applications include confined spaces, leak detection, contaminated land and emissions monitoring.

On the basis of the new facility, Ashtead Technology says it offers a rapid turnaround time for service jobs – typically three to five days, in addition to discounts for loan units and for customers with multiple units. The company also says its service department automatically contacts customers to arrange for service work to be conducted in a timely manner, and offers loan units when necessary.

Typically, each service includes a zero and span calibration, as well as a full functionality test to check pumps, flow rates, response times, membranes, a mechanical and electrical parts check, and a clean.
