Canada's First Calibration Lab
TSI Inc. is excited to announce an expanded service and calibration lab located in Canada for the PortaCount Fit Tester. Local, Canadian support will eliminate international shipping issues and shorten wait times, passing savings on to our Canadian customers.
Through our exclusive partnership with Concept Controls, TSI has installed the brand new PortaCount Calibration bench in their Cambridge, Ontario office located at 160 McGovern Drive. Concept Controls can now perform factory authorized service and calibrations on all PortaCount Respirator Fit Testers. TSI chose Concept Controls based on their integrity, trust and industry knowledge as a solid partner to lead the charge in the Canadian marketplace.
Factory authorized service has been something desperately needed in the Canadian market as many third party companies continue to offer uncertified reference readings and call them calibrations. This partnership between Concept Controls and TSI is a definite a homerun for both of our companies and our mutual customer base.
Being TSI Certified Counts
With our certified calibration lab Concept Controls ensure that your PortaCount is working to full manufacturers specifications to be legally valid as a fit tester. Concept Controls knows that calibration is key in determining not only the accuracy, but the traceability of your instrument. Calibration also includes inspecting, repairing and testing the equipment if it isn’t performing up to standards. For this reason, we emphasize accuracy at every level from particle size to speed, shape to composition. Our customers can be confident in the accuracy of their results.
We’re excited to build on our relationship with Concept Controls to provide our Canadian customers with local service for both of our product offerings. This partnership allows our customers to have properly calibrated instruments, while saving time and money.
