Gas Meter Calibrations

What are gas meters?


These are instruments used to detect and measure the concentration of gases in the air. Commonly used in a variety of industrial settings to monitor air quality and detect the presence of hazardous gases. Gas detection meters can measure a wide range of toxic gases and can also be used to detect gas leaks or to monitor the air quality in confined spaces.


Why should I calibrate my gas meters?


Confined space gas meter calibration refers to the calibration of gas meters specifically used for measuring gas concentrations in confined spaces. Confined spaces are typically areas with limited access or exit points and that may have hazardous or toxic atmospheres, such as tanks, silos, or underground vaults. The gas meters used in these spaces must be calibrated regularly to ensure they are accurately measuring gas concentrations and to help protect workers who enter the space.
Therefore, calibrating gas detection meters is an important part of maintaining their accuracy and ensuring the safety of workers who may be exposed to hazardous gases or environments.
Additionally, any gas meter that is used for the detection of toxic or flammable gasses, be it a personal, portable, or fixed installation gas meter requires calibration to ensure it provides an accurate reading of the hazardous environment. Most manufactures recommend calibration of their gas sensors at least every 6 months with more frequent calibration if used in highly hazardous environments.

How do I get my gas meter/s calibrated?


Safe and Sound Solutions have a team of highly skilled and certified technicians who are equipped with the latest technology and equipment to provide comprehensive calibration services that meet the highest standards of precision, accuracy and safety.
