Matt DeLacluyse, RAECO Rents business development manager

It's almost Thanksgiving week, so it's the perfect time for me to say how thankful I am for our amazing customers. I've learned so much over the last few years, and I expect to continue to do even more in 2015.

For our customers who currently have rentals: If you find your time running short due to the holiday, give me a call about extending your rental, with no additional fees for the holiday weekend.

And please note, RAECO Rents offices will be closed on Thursday and Friday of next week.

Stay safe,

Our rental specialists have the privilege every day of talking to certified industrial hygienists and safety professionals nationwide. And more and more, we’ve been speaking with undergrads and graduate students when they need industrial hygiene and safety equipment rentals for their class projects.

And it got us thinking… Wouldn’t it be great if we could find a way to introduce these students to our professional clients?

So on our website, we've posted the resumes of full-time undergrad and graduate students who are looking for jobs in the fields of industrial hyigene and safety. Your next dedicated team member may be there.

TSI VelociCalc 9565Indoor Air Quality Matters

While it may not be cold everywhere we rent, here in the Midwest, it's the time of year when "fresh" air comes with a wind chill, and a warm-up period after, and the air we're exposed to for long periods is warmed, vented, and recycled through our environments. Its' the time when our coworkers' colds travel through the office or workspace without much fresh outdoor air to dilute them and keep us healthy.

So, it's that much more important to make sure the indoor air quality is as good as it can be. The TSI VelociCalc 9565 ventilation test meter can help you test indoor air quality, make any necessary adjustments to your ventilation system, and reduce the spread of airborne irritants.

It's great for indoor air quality investigations, temperature comfort testing, and air flow testing, and it's available to rent with a variety of different probes, depending on your needs.

  • IAQ probe, including CO, CO2, temperature, and humidity (TSI 982)
  • Straight probe for air velocity, temperature and humidity (TSI 964)
  • Articulated probe for air velocity, temperature and humidity (TSI 966)
  • Rotating vane probe for air velocity and temperature (TSI 995)
  • Volatile organic compound (ppm VOC) and temperature probe (TSI 984)

The 9565 has been very popular with our rental customers. And, to make it even easier to use, there's now a Quick Tips guide for setup, logging test data, and taking measurements.

Did You Know...

Many of our rental instruments come with companion software for data management and reporting. But customers tell us that sometimes corporate IT policies and PC security keep them from loading our software on their computers.

So, to help avoid the hassles and delays, we've come up with a solution. For a small fee, you can rent a Windows 7 PC along with your instrument. We'll pre-load it with the software you need and the ability to print reports to PDF. Then, you just move the reports from our PC to yours by e-mail or USB stick.

Need us to download the data for you? We can do that, too. Just ask!

TSI Fit Test Systems Available — No Waiting

TSI PortaCount Pro and Pro+ Fit Test SystemsWhen you have to perform respirator fit tests, you need several factors to fall in line: quality instruments, availability, and all the parts necessary to do the job right. Well, we have great news for you!

  • RAECO Rents has a full supply TSI PortaCount Pro and PortaCount Pro+ units and mask adapters, ready and waiting for your call. As a customer said to me yesterday, "We've never had to reschedule a job because we couldn't get the equipment from you."
  • Our TSI PortaCount fleet is in great shape! No old, dusty kits here. The average age of our fleet is 16 months old, and each unit is calibrated annually at TSI to ensure it's in proper working order.
  • Your RAECO Rents kit includes the mask adapter required to connect the PortaCount to your respirator at no added cost. We also include a free particle generator to provide the trace environmental particles necessary to run a test. You can't run fit tests without the mask adapters, and as more building ventilation systems run with HEPA filters, adding a particle generator might just save your test schedule.
  • If you can't install software onto a company PC, we'll be happy to provide a pre-loaded Windows laptop for you to use. Just ask when you schedule your rental.
