Calibration gases are essential for making sure gas detection equipment is performing effectively. Are you aware of the calibration gas supply and demand process and the problems that vessels face?

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.

Bonus: Case Study – K-Line and CST

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.
