World-Leading Gas Detection Equipment more accessible in NZ

Entec Makes World-Leading Gas Detection Equipment more accessible to NZ food & beverage industries.

Among New Zealand’s food and beverage processing industry, there are many scenarios in which the monitoring of harmful gases is required. Whether it be during processing, dealing with waste/byproducts or ensuring produce is preserved until opened, food and beverage processors need to be vigilant to ensure workers are protected.

Auckland-based Entec supplies gas detection equipment for a wide range of NZ food and beverage businesses from large food processing plants, through to local wineries.

Partnering with these businesses long term (many over a decade), Entec has worked to make quality gas detection equipment more readily available and cost-effective for a broader range of Kiwi businesses.

“Working with the food and beverage industry for a number of years, we have insight into the industry’s unique requirements”, says Entec General Manager, Bob Weston.

“We’ve also worked with many smaller scale operations and understand the need for a cost-effective solution which can be relied upon to keep workers safe at all times”.

While in the past, businesses would have to look offshore for both the purchase and service of gas detection equipment, Entec’s NZ-based service centre means that gas detection equipment from world-leading brands can be serviced locally - reducing both costs and downtime.

“Having boots on the ground that you can quickly call upon for any advice or expertise is something our customers really value and has led to us working with an increasing number of food and beverage businesses through simple word-of-mouth”, says Weston.

An example of this occurred some years ago when a winemaker came to Entec with a concerning problem – a worker experiencing headaches and respiratory issues. Entec was able to quickly identify the issue and provide a solution which closely monitored CO2 and Oxygen Levels. Because of this, most wineries in the region now utilise the MX6 gas detector supplied by Entec.

This shows the value of having a dedicated NZ supplier of gas detectors for the food and beverage industry. Locally based experts who can quickly identify the issue and quickly remedy it to keep NZ workers safe.
