Why-calibrate-your-flue-gas-analyser

Flue Gas Analysers (FGA) are vital to test the safety, performance and emissions of any fossil fuel boiler, fire, cooker or heating system. They are used daily by thousands of heating engineers in the UK.

To meet strict compliance rules and keep your customers safe, your FGA must be calibrated and recertified yearly.

Why Calibrate and Recertify?

Calibrating and recertifying your FGA ensures it performs as new. Like vehicles, FGAs have moving parts and sensors that wear over time and must be checked, repaired or replaced to stay within performance requirements of BS EN: 50379 & TB143 in the UK and other countries.

Failure means your FGA may give incorrect readings, causing unsafe situations for you and your customers. Your work will also fail inspection & assessment, risking disqualification or worse.

KANE CARE makes calibration and recertification easy – our guaranteed same day service includes free, next day delivery to keep your down time to the absolute minimum.

How often should you recalibrate your flue gas analyser? Every Year!

It is an industry requirement to have your FGA professionally calibrated and recertified every year. British Standard BS7967 & Technical Bulletin TB143 and European Standard BS EN: 50379 clearly state FGAs must be professionally calibrated and not used if they have expired calibration dates.

Your KANE FGA shows you when this is due every time you switch on your FGA, on your FGA printouts and calibration certificate. When you register your KANE FGA at www.kane.co.uk you also receive an automatic reminder.

Your KAM Dashboard makes same day annual calibration & recertification easy and includes free next day delivery to and from KANE.

Safety-calibration

Why should you calibrate your flue gas analyser?

FGAs are essential safety devices and their calibration and recertification directly impacts measurement accuracy. In other words, if you use an FGA with an expired calibration certificate, you cannot guarantee measurement accuracy, affecting the quality of your work.

If there was a problem or accident, you are accountable and liable if your FGA had an expired calibration certificate – It goes without saying this can have disastrous consequences.
You may be asked to show your valid analyser calibration certificate at any time – your KAM Dashboard gives peace of mind because your KANE FGA calibration certificates are always available online, even if you cannot find your paper copy.
