Industry-first calibration laboratory
Featuring state-of-the-art calibration instruments to service gear, Kennards Hire has opened its first fully operational calibration laboratory to strengthen the offering of its Test & Measure business unit.
Located at its recently improved East Brisbane facility, which was the first Kennards Hire Test & Measure to open in 2015, the new lab is temperature, pressure and dust controlled. It is built on just 150m2 and has a team of three of space, sharing the site with the company’s general hire branch.
Providing testing, safety and measurement solutions, Kennards Hire’s range of instrumentation and equipment caters to the electrical, data and communications, plumbing, civil and utilities, HVAC, environmental and occupational hygiene, mining and oil and gas, and general industrial industries.
Kennards Hire’s Environmental Specialist, Chris Lynch, said: “It’s vital to have a facility that allows us to help our customers promptly while supplying a high quality product that produces reliable results.”
“The new lab is temperature and dust controlled to test and store various water quality analysis instruments. It features a serviceable ‘well’ pump testing rig to clean, leak test and pressure test the pumps. The lab also has a revolutionary intrinsically-safe fume hood to extract any hazardous gases when testing and calibrating gas analysis instruments such as PIDs, landfill, confined space and methane gas analysers.”
Leo De Sousa, Product Manager of Test & Measure, said: “Innovation is the vanguard of business development and customer service here at Kennards Hire, and we’re very excited to have this brand new lab to test and calibrate instrumentation equipment that aid our environmental and occupational hygiene product range.”
“Being the first of its kind for our entire branch network and the Australian equipment hire industry, we’ve now got the in-house ability to keep our range of highly technical instruments accurate to industry standards and compliance, meaning better services and more precise results to make our customers’ jobs easy.”
