  2. 5 Reasons to Calibrate Your Flue Gas Analyser

    Please note this blog was originally published on the 17th October 2017. It was updated on the 8th September 2021 to include current calibration information. White text on the left of the image reads '5 Reasons to Calibrate Your Flue Gas'. It is on a dark blue background. The yellow Gas Safety Week logo is in the bottom right corner and the right side of the banner is taken up with an image of a flue gas analyser that has been opened up: one side is blue casing and one side is a circuit board. Hands hold a black component above the side with the circuit board. Every plumber and gas engineer knows that when installing gas appliances a flue gas analyser (FGA) is essential! Using an FGA, you can verify that the appliance is working safely and that the installation is not producing dangerous levels of harmful gases that could jeopardise the safety of your clients and their community. That is why proper maintenance and calibration of your FGA is vital to ensuring that this critical part of your job is as accurate as possible. Continue reading →
  3. Calibrating Electrical and Process Instruments

    Electrical measurement equipment such as multimeters, resistors, power supplies and electrical testers are commonly used instruments that require periodical calibration, as well as process instruments advises Eddy Jones of calibrate.co.uk. Continue reading →
  4. Thermal Imaging Reveals Floor Heating Defects

    In a radiant flooring system, heat is provided by hot-water tubes or electric wires installed below the floor. As invisible thermal radiation rises it warms flooring material, which radiates this captured heat in turn. In new buildings with solid floors, the heating pipe is normally embedded in the floor screed. Continue reading →
  5. UKAS Accreditation Is a Calibration Milestone

    Calibrating instruments, tools and meters ensures that they generate correct results, and calibration is best implemented by laboratories able to provide UKAS certified calibrations carried out in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standards. Continue reading →
  6. Pressure Calibration Validates Gauge Accuracy

    Pressure calibrators may be handheld or bench instruments that contain pressure pumps and transducers internally or externally, and can measure and/or generate voltage, current and temperature. Continue reading →
  7. Gas Detection from Past to Present

    Please note this blog was originally published on the 11th August 2014. It was updated on the 8th September 2021 to include new information about gas detecting thermal imaging cameras, as well as relevant gas detector, flue gas analyser, and thermal camera models. The yellow Gas Safety Week logo is in the bottom left of the image. The left side of the image is taken up with a man wearing yellow hi-vis and an orange hard hat. He is wearing an orange gas detector and holding an orange gas tester. The man is outside surrounded by green industrial pipes. The right side of the image features white text that reads 'Gas Detection From Past to Present'.
