Gas Detection Ownership: When to Rent, Buy Certified Pre-Owned, or Buy New with a Subscription
Get the most for your money without sacrificing worker safety. Know whether you should rent gas detectors, choose Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) equipment, or buy new gas detectors that come with a subscription service. It all depends on your short-term needs, long-term needs, and everyday operations.
When to Rent or Buy
For short-term gas detection needs, renting is a great choice. If you only need a gas detector for a short time, there is no need to pay a large, upfront capital expense and then also pay to maintain the assets all year long.
Renting gas detection equipment is also ideal for:
Project and Contract Work: From a few days to a few months, short-term projects require an influx of gas detection equipment to keep your workforce safe. Maybe your short-term project requires monitoring for a specific gas and you don’t have a corresponding sensor installed in your gas detectors. Some sensors are expensive to purchase and maintain, so consider renting.
Trial Periods: In the market to purchase gas detectors? Try before you buy so you can ensure that the monitor will meet your long-term needs and be worth the investment. Rent first and see how gas detection equipment works for you before you invest.
Consider Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) gas detection equipment for projects that will last six months or longer. Check with the manufacturer, as some offer warranties that may cover the entire term of the project.
Similar to pre-owned cars, you can invest in a pre-owned gas detector that is reliable and safe, but also affordable. You could buy new gas detectors, but CPO options can meet your needs at a lower cost.
Our CPO gas detectors pass a rigorous multi-point inspection, including intrinsic safety approvals. These monitors are serviced to perform as originally designed and backed by a one-year warranty.
New gas detection equipment through a subscription-based program works well for everyday operations while also minimizing your maintenance and repair load. If you don’t have the personnel and technical expertise to maintain your fleet of gas detectors, leasing gas detectors through a service-based exchange program could be the solution for you.
