Kennards Hire has launched its first fully operational calibration laboratory to strengthen the offering of its Test & Measure business unit in East Brisbane.
The hub branch has a team of three employees and is built on 150 square metres of space, sharing the site with the company’s general hire branch.
The fully operational calibration laboratory is temperature, pressure and dust controlled, and has state-of-the-art calibration instruments to service gear.
Kennards Hire’s environmental specialist Chris Lynch said it is vital to have a facility that allows Kennards to help customers promptly whilst 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,” he said. “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 PID’s, landfill, confined space and methane gas analysers.”
Leo De Sousa, product manager of Test & Measure, said Kennards is excited to have the new lab to test and calibrate instrumentation equipment that aid the business’s 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 inhouse 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,” he said.
Kennards Hire’s East Brisbane Test & Measure was the first of its kind to open in 2015.
