All analysers returned for KANE CARE are serviced & repaired before UKAS calibration - We provide 'As found' results if you select this option

UKAS Calibration Certificates

UKAS calibration certificates deliver the highest standard of certification possible with worldwide recognition – they give unrivalled verification suitable for legal submission.

KANE delivers UKAS certificates for an all inclusive price & timely delivery.

UKAS requires you to accept these conditions when ordering from KANE.

What to expect & conditions

All new instruments are tested first before UKAS certification.

All previously used instruments first receive KANE CARE – KANE does not provide “as received” results as standard unless you select this option.

UKAS calibration processes are strictly controlled - Not all gases receive UKAS calibration certificates, regardless of instrument capability in which case we supply a standard Calibration Certificate for those gases.

Typical gases currently excluded are:

NO, NO2, SO2, H2S, HC & CO above 1,000ppm

UKAS Calibration Points

Depending on specification, your instrument is tested at these nominal values:

  • CO: 400 ppm & 1000 ppm
  • CO2: 2500ppm, 5000ppm, 9% & 15%

  • O2: 5% & 20.9%
  • Gas calibration always include a Zero value or point
  • Pressure*: 0, 30, 50, 70 mbar rising & falling
  • Temperature*: 0, 50, 100, 500°C

Nominal values are typical – Each UKAS certificate shows exact values.

*Other points are available – Email [email protected] if this is a requirement.

NOTE: KANE UKAS laboratory uncertainty budgets are ≤ to specification of instrument under test - we will contact you if instrument does not meet manufacturer specification.

Our UKAS certificates do not make compliance statements but can be used as evidence of performance against known standards.

All measurements within the current schedule of accreditation are available @, look up laboratory number 4448 or on request to [email protected].

Record Keeping

We are required to keep annual instrument calibration history records for at least 5 years.

Estimated Time

We typically take an extra working day to issue a UKAS certificate but reserve the right to take longer based on demand & instrument type.

We also reserve the right to amend with reasonable notice or end the service if we believe the instrument cannot be properly calibrated - If so, we will return at our expense with no further obligation or responsibility.

Sub Contract Calibration

We reserve the right to subcontract instruments for calibration to an approved supplier – this typically applies to non KANE instruments.

Software & Firmware Updates

We try to retain all customer data stored on the instrument but cannot accept liability for loss caused by required software updates or repairs.
