What's inside the whitepaper?
Calibration gases (also known as span gases) are essential to the maintenance and performance of inspection equipment on board ship.
They are used as a referencing tool and act as a comparative standard for calibrating analytical instruments. Because of the instability and impurity of the gases used and the relatively poor quality of cylinders within the industry, most calibration gases have a short shelf-life of just 6-12 months. This leads to many problems when it comes to supply.
This whitepaper looks at the process of supplying calibration gases and examines the common problems that vessels face. It also provides advice and guidance for potential solutions using real-life case studies to show how changes in procedure and suppliers can have an impact on operations.
