North East maintenance firm acquires "ground-breaking" boiler breakdown prediction app

A North East maintenance services firm has announced its acquisition of a Scottish app developer.

Commercial Maintenance Services UK, based in Gateshead, has acquired Radisoft, a business that is developing a sensor capable of predicting gas boiler breakdowns.

The company has made what it has described as a “significant investment” in Radisoft to ensure the sensor receives the necessary funding to take it to market.

It says that the sensor, which is highly effective and simple to use, has the potential to generate millions of pounds in worldwide sales.

Scott Davidson, director of Glasgow-based Radisoft, said it can detect changes in water-borne chemical compounds in a closed system – allowing a gas engineer to predict the failure of individual components, the boiler’s efficiency level and its lifespan.

He said: “I just had a light bulb moment and thought there must be a simple way of detecting when a boiler is becoming inefficient or a part is about to fail. I undertook some research and realised there wasn’t anything else like it on the market.”

Managing director Nic Smith said: “This is a ground-breaking invention which is truly visionary, given that it is able to easily identify failing parts within a closed system – saving time, money and, more importantly, ensuring unexpected boiler breakdowns are a thing of the past.

“This has immense potential for the global domestic and commercial heating industry and everyone at CMS is hugely excited to play a part in bringing this cutting-edge product to market.”
