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.

Did you know that calibration gas wastage could mean that approximately 55% of your costs are being squandered? In addition to this, multiple re-stocking deliveries will need to be arranged for each ship. This will incur more freight costs, dangerous goods charges and customs’/agent’s fees.
