Dispenser Certification / Meter Calibration

Dispenser Certification / Meter Calibration

Consumers want to know exactly how much gas they are receiving. A gas station wants to know exactly how much gas it’s selling. Cantest is the leading registered service provider for meter calibration and keeping you compliant.

Precision Tank and Line Testing

Precision Tank and Line Testing

Periodic testing of underground and above ground tanks and lines identifies leakage and performance issues. Cantest offers the most advanced and reliable precision testing equipment available in the world.

Site Quality Inspections (SQI)

Preventive Maintenance Inspections

Cantest’s proactive maintenance inspection program provides customers with a thorough evaluation of on-site equipment, environmental hazard identification, regulatory compliance issues, and identification of any safety concerns.

Statistical Inventory Reconciliation (SIR)

Statistical Inventory Reconciliation (SIR)

Federal and Provincial laws require underground storage tank (UST) systems to have leak detection. One of the available leak detection methods is Statistical Inventory Reconciliation (SIR). SIR has the advantages of being inexpensive and being able to detect leaks as well as fuel management issues and other forms of product loss (e.g., meter calibration problems, delivery errors, evaporation and theft). With SIR, a trained professional uses sophisticated computer software to conduct a statistical analysis of inventory, delivery and dispensing data.
