Scott Specialty Gases manufacturing facility located in Breda, Netherlands, recently received accreditation by the Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA).

The job of the facility is to manufacture multi-component natural gas BTU mixtures as well as calibration gas mixtures used for measuring vehicle exhaust emissions.

The accreditation received extends the scope of the initial ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation earned in 2005 that permits Scott\\$quot;s Breda facility, known as Calibration Laboratory K064, to manufacture and sell metrology level-2 Certified Reference Materials (CRMs).

When used to calibrate analyzers, Scott\\$quot;s accredited BTU mixtures are instrumental for precise determination of the caloric value of natural gas to within ±0.2%. Scott\\$quot;s accredited vehicle emission mixtures include carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and propane in nitrogen and provide guaranteed ±1.0% analytical accuracy. The RvA accreditation applies to mixtures that are prepared on both an individual and a batch basis using Scott\\$quot;s Acublend® dynamic blending technology.

Scott Specialty Gases maintains ISO 9001-2000 certified manufacturing facilities and 17025 accredited laboratories in North America and Europe to provide on-time worldwide delivery of high-purity and mixed gases for industrial, scientific, medical and semiconductor applications
