Introducing the Ideal Formaldehyde Detectors

By Anna Butler | August 25, 2016

Tags: , , , , , ,

Formaldehyde Detection-4

Formaldehyde (FAH) is a colourless, flammable gas with a strong, pungent odour. It is widely used in hospitals, disinfectants, carpet and furniture glues, as well as a number of other products. FAH is used in liquid form as a water and methanol solution called Formalin, which has a clear to milky appearance, and in solid form as a white powder called Para-formaldehyde. Exposure to formaldehyde causes irritation of the eyes, nose and bronchial tubes, while high exposure can even cause death.

In order to protect the safety of workers both short and long term, a Formaldehyde detector is the ideal solution. We offer two portable gas detectors designed to detect Formaldehyde; The FP-31 and the AQ-Expert.

Brisbane Flooding

By susan | August 11, 2011

Tags: ,

During the recent Brisbane floods a large number of underground car parks suffered severe damage, causing major disruptions to many of the city’s office workers.  In many instances firms had to establish temporary offices across the city.

Not only did the water and sludge need to be pumped out, but repairs also needed to be made to lifts and electrical systems.  One major repair job that needed to be undertaken prior to the car parks being declared safe was the replacement of the carbon monoxide systems.  These systems not only ensure that the air quality is kept to an acceptable standard, but also help to keep the operating costs of the building under control and minimise the carbon footprint.

With our head office located in Brisbane, Control Equipment was well positioned to direct our Service Engineers to carry out these repairs.  As we maintain adequate stock levels we were able to complete these jobs in a minimal time frame, and assist with getting the city back on its feet. On behalf of everyone here at Control Equipment, our thoughts are with everyone who was affected by the Brisbane Floods and we are working hard to work through all our services and repairs as quick as possible. Gas detection equipment is vitally important in the safety of many individuals. If you have been affected by the Brisbane floods and need your equipment serviced or repaired contact us as soon as possible.

Stay safe everyone, we have you all in our thoughts!
