My wife and I have two young kids and a very energetic puppy at home. Last week, the three young ones were playing ball in the living room, and they knocked over a lamp.
Mary and I jumped into standard cleanup mode, with one notable addition: Since the lamp had a CFL bulb, I moved it outside to our porch, so we didn’t have any problems with mercury vapor leaking out in our house.
I’ve now learned my lesson: I’m only installing CFLs in locations where they’re out of reach of my active family. That way, I won’t worry about the mercury vapor release the next time we break a lamp playing fetch indoors.
After last week’s accident, I took our new Ion Science MVI mercury vapor monitor home, and tested the broken light bulb. It was so easy to use right out of the box, I didn’t even have to look at the user manual.
I’m committed to making sure RAECO Rents customers have the latest portable detection and monitoring instruments. The fact that our manufacturers have made their latest devices so user-friendly is really the icing on the cake.
Meet the RAECO Rents Team…

Instruments deliver more performance, fewer hassles
RAECO Rents is proud to announce two new Ion Science additions to our rental fleet — the MVI Mercury Vapor Indicator and the PhoCheck Tiger portable VOC detector.
Ion Science MVI Mercury Vapor Indicator
Mercury vapor exposure is known to cause headaches, memory loss, and decreased motor functions. In the workplace, OSHA, NIOSH, and ACGIH have published limits for worker exposure to mercury vapor. So, it’s great that the Ion Science MVI measures mercury vapor quickly, accurately, and easily.
Ion Science PhoCheck Tiger for Volatile Organic Compounds
When the PhoCheck Tiger PID arrived in our offices, Pat and I took it for a test run. It was so easy to set up and calibrate. The PC software installed in minutes, and recognized the unit as soon as we connected it by USB.
As a former IT geek, I know the challenges users can have learning new hardware and software, and this device is really straight-forward. If only all instruments were so simple.
To make using the PhoCheck Tiger even easier, we created step-by-step checklist to walk you through setting up your VOC monitor's software, view or modify the Tiger configuration, and view your data. Read How to Tame Your (Ion Science PhoCheck) Tiger.
Just Arrived! Big power in a small package!
A couple months ago, I introduced you to the new Sensidyne Gilian GilAir Plus air sampling pump. We now have 10 in stock, ready for you to rent today.
To say it’s new doesn’t do the GilAir Plus justice. Sensidyne was already a market leader, but this radical redesign will put them even farther in the lead… and it’s all for your benefit.
Here are a few highlights you’re bound to love:
