Pylon is an official Service Centre for SARAD radon measuring products.

Pylon Electronics is pleased and excited to announce that we are now an official Canadian Service Center for SARAD Radon measuring products. Pylon can provide traceable calibrations complete with a certificate for the Scout, Scout Plus, and Scout Home instruments. As well as providing service, Pylon is also an authorized distributor for the Scout monitors.  These instruments complement our laboratory grade Pylon AB6A series products which allows Pylon to provide you with a wide range of radon measuring instruments and options.

Jim Mullin, Vice President & General Manager of Pylon Electronics believes that this partnership fits nicely with the company’s mission to be the industry leader in calibration and repair services, as well as, in the design and manufacturer of Radon and Thoron gas detection. “We are very excited to be the official distributor and to provide certified calibrations for SARAD. Both companies build quality products that are sold to over 50 countries on every continent, and our calibration technicians are among the best in the world. This is a big win for us and SARAD as well.”

This partnership allows Pylon Electronics-Radon Division to enter the home radon detection market, whereas previously the focus has only been on the industrial, health sciences and research sectors.

About SARAD:

The SARAD GmbH was founded in 1993 by the physicist Prof. Dr. Thomas Streil. The main business area initially included services for the assessment of radioactively polluted objects with regard to their subsequent rehabilitation. The development of electronic measuring devices began shortly afterward. In 1994, SARAD introduced the first radon monitor from its own production. Since 1997, development and production of high-quality measurement technology have been the main pillars of the company. Due to the positive business development, the company was able to move into its own company building in Dresden in the year 2000. In the following years, the product spectrum was continuously expanded.

Based on this core competency, a comprehensive know-how in the field of environmental measurement technology was developed. Numerous multi-parameter stations for earthquake and volcanism research were installed.

SARAD Technik is successfully used in more than 50 countries on all continents. A worldwide network of partners and dealers ensures optimal advice and exemplary service before and after the acquisition of one of our products.

In March 2007 IGRS International Society for Geological Risk Research in Dresden appointed Prof. Dr. Thomas Streil as its vice president.
