The equipment rental company said its new temperature, pressure and dust-controlled laboratory was equipped with ‘state-of-the-art’ instruments to test and calibrate instrumentation equipment.

Chris Lynch, Kennards Hire’s Environmental Specialist, said, “It features a serviceable ‘well’ pump testing rig to clean, leak test and pressure test the pumps. Not to mention, the lab also has a revolutionary intrinsically-safe fume hood to extract any hazardous gases when testing and calibrating gas analysis instruments such as PID’s, landfill, confined space and methane gas analysers.”

Operating alongside Kennards general rental business, the facility will also offer testing, safety and measurement instrumentation and equipment for use in the electrical, data and communications, utilities, mining, oil and gas, and industrial industries.

Leo De Sousa, Product Manager of Test and Measure, said, “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.”
