SAFETY-RELATED SERVICES

ACL have a calibration service for most safety-related instruments

 

GAS MONITORS/FLUE GAS METERS

ACL are able to offer fully traceable calibration of Gas Monitors such as the Gascoseekers, Siebe and Crowcon Monitors etc and we keep a wide range of calibration gases in stock for CO, Oxygen, Hydrocarbon and Flue Gas meters etc.

We also stock a small range of 5litre cylinders of test gases for customers who want to check the operation of their meters before use - a sensible precaution, since many sensors used in gas detection instruments have a very finite life and loss of performance may go undetected until the actual calibration.

SOUND LEVEL METERS

ACL can provide fully traceable calibrations of most sound level meters with ¼” or ½” microphones.


LIGHT METERS (LUX METERS)

ACL can provide traceable calibrations of most types of Lux meters, both for daylight and artificial light.


AIRFLOW

Using a test rig specially designed to produce a laminar airflow over a 12 ft tube-length we can calibrate vane, hot-wire and pitot-tube anemometers up to about 25m/s to satisfy the needs of the HVAC and Safety industries.

VIBRATION/ACCELERATION AND SOUNDLEVEL

ACL calibrate vibration meters, HARM meters and Sound Level meters.

More and more attention is being paid by industrial safety experts (and insurance companies!) to the dangers of vibrating machinery and the effects on operators who may be using such power tools for extended periods. Many companies now have their own Vibration Meters and Sound Level Meters to carry out regular checks to protect their employees. ACL has facilities for calibrating both types of meters.

We are also the only calibration house in the North able to calibrate the accelerometers which are the heart of many condition-monitoring systems and vibrators used particularly by firms in the automotive and aero industries. Using our Beran 465 Calibration System we can carry out a variety of traceable measurements on these essential components to satisfy the needs of most Quality Systems.
