Matt DeLacluyse, RAECO Rents business development manager

In my IT career, it was common for people to identify themselves as Unix guys, Mac OS guys, or the Windows loyal. But I figured out pretty quickly that what really mattered was which one allowed me to get my job done most effectively?

And I see it every day in our rental business. Though brand managers would like us to standardize and rent only their products, it doesn't serve you for us to do that. You've invested considerable time and energy in learning how to use a particular instrument. It doesn't help you if I say, "No, you have to use the other brand."

So, whether you're more comfortable with OHD's QuantiFit or TSI's PortaCount systems, you can rent either one through us. The same applies for RAE Systems and BW gas detectors, 3M and Svantek noise dosimeters, TSI and MIE particulate monitors.

The Ultimate Rental Experience is about getting what you need and what you expect, not what makes business easiest for the rental house. So call 866-736-8347 and talk to me or a member of our rental team. We'll be glad to help you out.

Till next time,

TSI or OHD for Fit Testing: You Choose!

Respirator fit testing usually happens once a year, so why retrain yourself on a system you're not already familiar with? At RAECO Rents, you can use the fit test system you know.

TSI PortaCount Pro 8030 and PortaCount Pro+ 8038

TSI PortaCount Pro and Pro+ Fit Test SystemsIf you're testing N-95 masks, the PortaCount Pro+ 8038 is the only OSHA-approved quantitative fit test system for the job. The PortaCount Pro+ 8038 is OSHA-compliant for ALL respirator types. If you used the retired TSI 8020 with N-95 Companion, or are testing ANY tight-fitting respirator plus N-95, P2, and P1 disposables, choose the TSI 8038.

If you need a particle generator, just ask. We'll include it free.

If you used the retired TSI 8020, or are testing disposable filtering facepieces Series 100, 99, P3, and HEPA masks, half and full-face masks, gas masks, PAPR, and SCBA masks, use the PortaCount Pro 8030.

OHD QuantiFit Quantitative Respirator Fit Testing SystemOHD QuantiFit

With the OSHA-approved five-step Redon Protocol, and Controlled Negative Pressure technology, a fit test can be completed in less than three minutes. OHD's Quantifit can store 500 tests so that the typical user can store a year's worth of tests or more without connecting to a PC. Plus, data can be downloaded to FitTrack software or backed up to a memory stick as a text file for safe keeping.

All fit test systems come with free data management software. For a head-start on testing, you can also download software from our website and watch free training videos on both the TSI and OHD systems.

Did You Know...

When you do business with RAECO Rents, you won't pay rental fees when the unit is in transit to you. (You can't use an instrument if it's on a UPS truck. Why pay rental time for it?)

Your rental starts on the first FULL day the instrument is in your hands and ends on the day you ship the instrument back. Unless an instrument is schedule for early AM arrival, you are not charged rental costs for the day the unit gets to you. If you need a unit for Monday use, and we have it there on Friday, you don't pay for the weekend.

Monitoring During Hospital Construction

Instrumentation for hospital facilities teams and healthcare workers

When a hospital is under construction — remodeling or renovating existing structures or expanding facilities — keeping patients, staff, and equipment safe is a top priority for construction teams and health facility engineers.

We often think of dust and noise as the primary problems, but there's another factor to consider: vibration. As customers have reported to us, vibration from hospital construction can cause issues with delicate equipment, like MRI and CT scanners, facility data centers, and for teams working in operating rooms.

See our list of rental instrumentation for hospitals and healthcare workers, from fit testing systems to monitors for dust, vibration, noise, and toxic gases.
