The Dräger AlcoTest 5510 breathalyser can be sent to us for calibration. Its as easy as download the breathalyser calibration form, print it off, fill it in and send it up with your breathalyser.
The Dräger AlcoTest 5510 is a small compact model, it can even be fit in to a shirt pocket! This breathalyser has integrated memory built into it, it stores the last 10 tests taken.
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!
This is the process of a Dräger AlcoTest 5510 breathalyser calibration.
The breathalyser standard has recently been updated to AS 3547:2019, if you would like to upgrade your breathalyser from the Dräger AlcoTest 5510 breathalyser to be in compliance with the standard check out our alcohol testing products.
