Why do you need refrigeration instruments?
The refrigeration industry encompasses many different devices, installations and structures, all of which require class-leading instruments to ensure they are operating safely and efficiently.
Processes that need these instruments can include everything from cold storage facilities to HVAC systems. This involves complicated sys - tems that are heavily dependent on regular and effective maintenance to keep them running as the manufacturer intended.
Safety is one of the key reasons for using Testo instruments to assess and maintain refrigeration systems. Many of these installations rely on chemicals such as ammonia or carbon dioxide that can be dangerous in specific situations.
One of the main dangers that the refrigeration industry needs to keep on top of is leaks. Chemicals such as ammonia may not be lethal in small doses, but if it’s allowed to build up or react with other compounds the results can be deadly.
Testo instruments allow you to identify these issues before they can escalate, and enable you to perform quick and easy maintenance to ensure these problems never befall your business. Instruments such as our leak detectors excel at this, preventing costly mishaps and keeping employees safe.
These complex systems need to be kept operating within strict manufacturer guidelines, otherwise you risk damaging the machinery. Testo instruments can measure all of the necessary parameters needed to keep them operating smoothly, such as superheating and sub-cooling, pressure and temperature.
Why should you choose Testo?
Testo devices are an investment in the future of your machinery and the safety of your employees. They have a strong presence in the training of refrigeration students, meaning the next generation of workers in the industry are already familiar with them. This commitment by a number of educational facilities around the country supports Testo’s role as an industry leader with regards to instrument supply.
Another defining feature of our products is that they are digital, taking them beyond the analogue gauges that were standard in the past. There is an array of advantages that our products supply by being digital.
The first is easy-to-read screens. Gone are the days of trying to pinpoint exactly where a needle is pointing on a gauge. Our devices display a clear and concise readout, allowing you to make the correct measurement first time, every time.
Other benefits of the digital makeup of our products are represented by our refrigeration gauges, which boast unique features that cannot be matched by analogue alternatives. The Testo refrigeration digital gauges allows for simultaneous measurement of superheating and sub-cooling, an option that would be unthinkable if we still lived in an analogue world.
The positives this offers to users are many, and can be measured in a number of ways. Because digital instruments eliminate the need to perform complex calculations, the risks of costly human error is eliminated. This also saves time that is better spent in other parts of your business.
Testo has made its name as an industry leader on the back of the excellent instruments it provides to range of sectors around Australia. Our emissions analysers are proof of this, providing state-of-the-art solutions to any issues that may arise in industry use throughout Australia, particularly where diesel engines, boilers and high energy processes are involved.
We are committed to all levels of the industries these instruments service, with our devices representing us everywhere from training facilities to the mines and factories where emission control is essential to daily operation.
Why is it important to monitor emissions?
There are number of equally important reasons why monitoring gas emissions is an absolute necessity anywhere combustion engines are present. Potentially dangerous gases are often emitted here, as they are an unavoidable result of using fossil fuels.
Some of the more common gases that can be emitted through these processes include carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. While they are considered to be normal emissions, it is possible for them to become dangerous if the wrong concentrations are released. This can signify that the equipment is not operating correctly, which is a danger to staff and the machinery itself.
High-maintenance machinery such as boilers are particularly prone to catastrophic failure if their emissions are at the wrong level, particularly if the fuel burns too rich. With devices like the Testo 320 gas analyser, these risks do not have to be taken.
Irregular emissions have negative effects beyond creating an unsafe workplace as well. They can significantly reduce the efficiency with which a company operates. This is because emissions that are outside manufacturer ’s guidelines, whether leaks or incorrect chemical composition, mean the system is not functioning in its intended manner. In these situations, they could be using more fuel than is normal, costing your business extra for a machine that isn’t performing up to standard.
Efficiency checks on diesel engines are easy with the Testo 340 diesel engine analyser, and ensure your business isn’t wasting its time or fuel.
There are also strict government guidelines surrounding emissions, to protect both staff and the environment. Gases such as carbon dioxide are known as greenhouse gases, with authorities around the world going through great pains to reduce the expulsion of these into the atmosphere.
This is especially apparent when engines are used in confined spaces or near other dangerous gases, chemicals or substances, such as in the mining industry. Failure to adhere these rules can result in fines which will greatly affect the running of your business. Monitoring emissions regularly and thoroughly with Testo instruments can prevent this stress, enabling your company to run safer and more efficiently.

Indoor air quality is a major concern for a number of industries throughout Australia. From construction and engineering to maintenance teams - air quality testing for carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and methane must be a serious consideration given the consequences. There have been many incidents in the recent years that highlight the importance of monitoring indoor air quality to protect both building oc - cupations and the environment itself.
What are the consequences of high carbon dioxide measurements? Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a naturally-produced atmospheric gas which is recorded as parts per million (ppm). Away from heavy traffic areas and industries, the air contains around 380 ppm of CO2. However, humans also expel this gas and in the confined environment of a school or office, and CO2 levels can soon rise.
As office workers and students spend around half their days inside buildings, it is important to maintain adequate indoor air quality. According to several high-profile studies, a primary indicator of indoor air quality is the concentration of CO2. A recorded level above 1,000 ppm is regarded as ‘not ideal’, while the ‘reference range’ should be around 700 to 1,500 ppm. Although a level below 5,000 ppm isn’t going to harm someone’s health, it can have an affect on their mental state.In areas of high CO2 concentration, people report drowsiness, tiredness, lack of concentration and a sense that the air is stale. There is also research to suggest productivity is affected by high CO2 lev - els
What are the consequences of high carbon monoxide measurements? Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odourless, colourless gas that can cause serious sudden illness and in some instances death. It is pr oduced by a combination of partly-burned gas and Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG). This is commonly a problem in buildings where a gas appliance is poorly maintained, broken, badly fixed or incorrectly fitted.Carbon monoxide is a real concern for building professionals as a faulty heating system can soon fill a room with the toxic gas.However, if people become sick, it can be difficult to diagnose carbon monoxide poisoning as the cause as the symptoms are similar to a number of other illnesses. This highlights the importance of regular system monitoring and indoor air quality testing.It is recommended that industry professionals check and monitor gas heating systems and related infrastructure on an annual basis. This includes a full maintenance service as well as an in depth CO2 test to determine whether it is emitting gases to a dangerous level.
What are the consequences of high methane measurements? Methane gas is another colourless and odourless gas that is widely found in the natural environment. However, it is widely encountered by workers in mines and manufacturing as well as being used to heat homes and commer cial buildings. The substance is used extensively in gas stoves, fireplaces and even water heaters. This means it can pose a problem to both workers and the general public if it begins to leak because of often hairline cracks in the pipelines.Ther e are a number of both physical and environmental reasons to detect if you have a methane gas leak. Headaches are a common sign as well as nausea and breathing difficulties. Methane gas is also toxic to vegetation so dead plants near a gas line are a sign of a leak and sometimes a dull hissing or roaring sound can be heard from the gas line itself
Every drop is valuable
The testo 270 is latest generation of our proven range cooking oil testers. Testo’s 270 allows you to determine the quality of cooking oil faster and more reliably than ever before. To do so, it measures the ‘Total Polar Material’ (TPM) content in the oil, which is a sure indicator of its quality. It then gives a percentage and if the oil is aged an increased TPM value will show.
By using improper oil not only will the food produced be of a lower quality, but there are also health risks surrounding cleanliness. This is the reason why the polar materials may not exceed a certain limit, depending on the country. Regular measurement with the testo 270 will help to prevent this.
Cooking oil develops its best potential between 14 and 20% TPM. Using this measurement tool to understand exactly when oil needs replacing also makes sure you aren’t wasting oil. You don’t want to be replacing perfectly good oil by changing too frequently as this will increase oil consumption and ultimately costs.
In addition to the above, the TPM limit values can be individually defined, and can, like other instrument configurations, be protected from inadvertent alteration by a PIN.
Extensive practical tests by Testo engineers have demonstrated that regular measurement with the testo 270 reduces the consumption of cooking oil by up to 20 %. So if for example if you used 1,000 litres per year and assuming a price of 70p per litre - that makes for a saving of $5,160 a year!
