Sober Check is the exclusive agent for DriveSafe exec breathalyser calibrations in New Zealand.
Send your breathalyser to us for calibration. Address, costs, and instructions are on the below calibration form. Print it out, fill it in and send it to us along with your breathalyser.
To calibrate breathalysers, Sober Check uses wet bath calibration. This contains a laboratory-certified ethanol solution at 34°C. Air is blown through the solution to mimic human breath, and used to calibrate the breathalyser.
Your breathalyser will get a quick clean, then the breathalyser is tested to ensure it performs correctly, a combination of straight air and ethanol solutions at different levels.
Calibration usually takes 24 – 48 hours from receiving the breathalyser. It is posted back to you, using the delivery address provided on the calibration form.
There is a section on the form for shipping insurance. With the overloaded courier system, it can be hard to guarantee when your breathalyser will get to you. The shipping insurance covers any issues with courier handling and the possibility of it going missing in transit!
The DriveSafe exec breathalyser is a personal breathalyser. The lifespan of a personal breathalyser is approximately 2-3 years.
