Kennards Hire opens calibration laboratory

Kennards Hire has launched its first fully operational calibration laboratory at its East Brisbane facility.

As the East Brisbane location was the first Kennards Hire Test & Measure to open in 2015, it was decided it was only fitting that this be the first to feature a fully operational calibration laboratory that is temperature, pressure and dust controlled, and has state-of-the-art calibration instruments.

The calibration lab specifically caters to the electrical, data and communications, plumbing, civil and utilities, HVAC, environmental and occupational hygiene, mining, oil and gas, and general industrial industries.

“It’s vital to have a facility that allows us to help our customers promptly whilst supplying a high-quality product that produces reliable results,” said Kennards Hire’s Environmental Specialist, Chris Lynch. “The new lab is temperature and dust controlled to test and store various water quality analysis instruments. It features a serviceable well pump testing rig to clean, leak test and pressure test the pumps. The lab also has an intrinsically safe fume hood to extract any hazardous gases when testing and calibrating gas analysis instruments.”

“Being the first of its kind for our entire branch network and the Australian equipment hire industry, we’ve now got the in-house ability to keep our range of highly technical instruments accurate to industry standards and compliance, meaning better services and more precise results to make our customers’ jobs easy,” said Leo De Sousa, Product Manager of Test & Measure.

Kennards Hire Brisbane Test & Measure is located at 39 Caswell Street, East Brisbane.
