Richard Irvin is the first technical FM company in the UK to successfully go “printer free” with KANE.
Our IT Manager, Paul Rae led the project, in conjunction with KANE’s technical team, to remove the need for over 90 printers by issuing over 100 new KANE458s Flue Gas Analysers to our field gas and oil engineers.
Paul developed this technology with KANE, the supplier of the new Flue Gas Analysers. The implementation of the new system will provide a greater analysis of results and contribute to a more robust compliance regime.
Scott Holliday, KANE’s marketing manager said: “When Paul came to us with this query, we were delighted. We have developed our own KANE live and Printer App software before, but never for one particular customer. It makes sense going printer free, for compliance reasons and even more so, environmentally.”
The new analysers will enable measurement of the concentrations of various gases and adjust burners on a boiler to help achieve optimal combustion. Efficient combustion also reduces emission of pollutants such as nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2), and particulate matter.
These analysers are equipped with the latest Bluetooth sync technology that allows automatic appending of readings to our gas documentation.
This project was delivered on time, has exceeded both our internal and client expectations, and demonstrates our commitment to sustainability, innovation, and on-site operational efficiencies. In addition to these benefits, the removal of printers has removed a technical failure point in technical evidence process for our engineers.
“This is the first time I’ve used the import feature on my tablet for analyser readings and it is a delight, much faster and very easy to do.” Martin McNab, HVAC Engineer – Mobile Services
