Choosing the Right Breathalyser

Choose the right breathalyser for yourself.

Your breathalyser should:

      •  Meet Australian Standards
      •  Be recalibrated
      •  How accurate you need the breathalyser to be
      •  Convenience of use
      •  Extra features
 

 

AS3547 Australian Standard

Does your Breathalyser meet Australian Standards

When purchasing for a workplace it is important to purchase a breathalyser that has certification as it shows the breathalyser is serviceable and well-supported through a strict control process as a safety device. Breathalysers with AS3547 certification have been independently tested by SAI Global for their accuracy and reliability. Breathalysers with this certification have also been proven to perform better that other breathalysers without it. The certification identifies that the breathalyser is serviceable and well-supported through a strict control process as a safety device.

Keep in mind that buying a breathalyser without certification does not mean that it's not accurate, reliable or serviceable. All our breathalysers are serviceable and calibrated before they leave our premises by our in-house technicians under strict guidelines.

   

Breathalyser Calibration

Breathalyser Recalibration

Over time a breathalyser sensor will become less accurate and will require calibration. Depending on the model calibration may be required every 6 to 12 months. Best practice is to follow manufacturer's recommendations or as covered by legislation.
   

Breathalyser Accuracy

How accurate you need the breathalyser to be

A breathalyser should have high accuracy in a controlled environment. The controlled accuracy reading should be +/-0.01% variance. As per Australian Standard AS3547 a good accuracy is  +/- 10%. Variations in body types mean that +/-0% accuracy is impossible to achieve.
