CIH Equipment Company, an independent calibration laboratory specializing in Industrial Hygiene/Environmental Health and Safety Industry and headquartered in Clearwater, FL, announces the expansion of its ISO/IEC17025:2005 accredited services. This allows CIH Equipment Company to provide expanded accredited calibration services.
CIH is now home to the only ISO 17025 accredited dust generation chamber and air sampler calibration labs. This allows industries that monitor both explosive and inhalable particles to receive accredited and standard calibrations of their monitoring equipment.
“We have clients in industries that include pharmaceuticals, plastic and rubber manufacturing, textiles, wood and paper manufacturing, metals and coal just to name a few,” said Sean Ortlieb, VP of Sales and Marketing at CIH Equipment Company. “They all rely on accurate measurements from equipment such as DustTrak, Microdust, Kanomax, Sensidyne, Haz-Dust, Met-One, Casella, amongst others, and with our expanded accreditation we can provide them with a trusted option for calibration services.”
Following the successful audit by the internationally recognized A2LA accrediting agency, CIH Equipment’s scope has also expanded in the fields of acoustics, aerosols, humidity, pressure and fluid quantities. This allows for accredited calibration of acoustical calibrators, microphone acoustical response, microphone electrostatic response, sound level meters, multi-channel particle counters, velocity generation, velocity measurement, ISO standard dust concentration (generate/measure), flow calibrators, air sampling pumps (air flow), mass flow meters, pressure measurement, temperature (generate), infrared temperature (generate), humidity (generate), temperature measurement, IR thermo meters and humidity measurement.
