Detection, Identification, Monitoring Equipment – Only as Good as Your Operator Training

It is becoming evident that CBRNe equipment manufacturers are putting the requirements of their First Responder clients at the forefront of product development. This is a welcome shift in emphasis from the previous attitude of equipment being designed for laboratory use by PhD level physicists, chemists and biologists with not very much consideration given to layman usability.  The complexity of the equipment therefore created a barrier to effective operational use, with a requirement for burdensome training.

Calibrate or Die

Guest Blog - Chris Wrenn

Author: MRIGLOBAL
While the title of this white-paper may seem severe, the importance of calibration for handheld gas and vapor detectors cannot be under-emphasized because many gas sensors fail to an unsafe state. A Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) combustible gas sensor indicates a safe atmosphere when it reads zero but when it fails it also reads zero. A Chlorine (Cl2) sensor indicates a safe atmosphere when it reads zero but when it fails it also reads zero. While some sensors, like oxygen usually fail to a safe or alarming state, they too can benefit from calibration to restore their accuracy. The only way to assure that many sensors are working correctly is to apply a gas to them to “calibrate” them.
