Fall River, MA— Apollo Safety, Inc, recently announced the formation of a special division to serve wastewater treatment facility clients. The new division will feature extensive offerings for wastewater treatment facilities as it pertains to gas detection equipment, maintenance and monitoring.
Those offerings include a wide variety of portable and stationary gas detection systems suitable for wastewater treatment plants, including name brands such as Industrial Scientific, RAE Systems, RKI, and GMI. These systems are available for purchase or rental at weekly or monthly rates.
Apollo also has expanded its fire department services division. That expansion will include extended offerings as it pertains to gas detection equipment and training.
From a product standpoint, Apollo Safety offers safety equipment and clothing ranging from eye and face protection to flame resistant rainwear/suits and headwear to footwear. That also includes hazardous storage and handling equipment, ARC safety equipment, janitorial supplies and more.
In addition, Apollo Safety provides on-site installation and training and 24/7 service. All Apollo Safety technicians are factory-trained and certified. In addition, Apollo offers its own training program, with five levels of certification. Apollo Safety technicians must be Level II or higher to service a wastewater treatment gas detection system.
“The advanced training our technicians receive provides an added level of safety and security for our clients,” said John V. Carvalho III, who along with his wife Tracy opened Apollo Safety back in 1995.
“Because of the training our techs receive, they can spot potential problems much sooner than techs without that training.” Carvalho added. “That extra level of training can mean averting a major problem before it has the potential to become a tragedy. Or diagnosing a minor problem as part of a regular maintenance check that undetected could end up being a $4,000-5,000 repair.”
Apollo Safety provides service in a “state of the art” in-house service center, as well as offering on-site support with factory-trained technicians for both portable and stationary gas detection systems.
Rental equipment is certified to NIST standards and is guaranteed for the entire rental period.
