Breathalyser Recalibration Service

Recalibration Overview

Breathalysers Australia certified calibration process is performed in a controlled environment by highly trained technicians. Known alcohol concentrations are passed across the breathalyser sensor to pre-set baseline values ensuring the results are within the units acceptable tolerance range.

Additionally we run each unit through a full diagnostic test, which includes mechanical and air flow testing. The final accuracy test is then verified with a double blind point-to-point assessment to achieve certification.

WHY RECALIBRATE?

The Sensor

Breathalysers require recalibration as the sensors accuracy inherently drifts over time. Additionally, alcohol residue and intake particles gradually build up on the sensor resulting in the device recording inaccurate readings. Regularly recalibrating your breathalyser will lengthen the units life-span through servicing benefits.

The Process

Recalibration is a dual-step process which involves cleaning, clearing and resetting the sensor by flushing a specialised Reference Solution through a Recalibration Simulator. Our trained technicians test the device at various %BAC levels to complete the process and confirm device accuracy within the acceptable variance range for the particular sensor type.

Certification

Breathalysers Australia can only recalibrate and offer the 1-year warranty on units that we have sold. Only trained technicians using specialist laboratory equipment are certified to recalibrate the devices.

HOW FREQUENTLY?

Factors Affecting Calibration

Breathalysers require recalibration to maintain accuracy. Frequent usage, blowing strong alcohol concentrations into the unit and not waiting 15 minutes after consuming alcohol before testing will build up alcohol residue on the sensor more quickly and will increase the requirement. The Sensor type and Certification will determine what the recommended recalibration period is.

AS3547 Certified Products

AS3547 Certified products require recalibration every 6 months to maintain Certification. For AS3547 2019 models it is every 12 months.

WHICH DEVICES?

Units we Calibrate

The breathalyser must originate from one of Breathalysers Australia’s facilities in order to be calibrated. Some leading brand breathalysers are replicated on the international market and contain lower-grade components.

AS3547 Certified Products

Breathalysers Australia recalibration policy complies with local AS3547 Australian Standards requirements. AS3547 specifies that there is complete traceability of the unit’s serial number for it to be recalibrated under the Standard.

Units we do not Calibrate

We do not recalibrate BACtrack Go Keychain, C6 or C8 due to the cost effectiveness of the product.

Registration

Register the serial of your device by emailing it to service@breathalysers-australia.com.au. The serial is located in the battery housing and on the side of the retail packaging box.

Australian Calibrating Services at Breathalysers Australia

Breathalysers are accurate devices that give fast results. As a result, frequent use or extensive alcohol concentration build-up weighs on the sensors. However, there will be a point when the unit can no longer take an accurate reading. As a result, a breathalyser needs Australian calibrating services to maintain the sensors. READ MORE>>
