Acme's manufacturing facility is ISO 9001:2000 certified and we are always ready to custom design equipment for difficult or demanding applications.
Acme Engineering manufactures three distinct product lines:


  • gas detection systems for building ventilation control.

  • • Process heating equipment for large commercial and industrial applications.

  • • Automatic scraper-strainers for intake, process and effluent filtration.


Acme is an integrated manufacturer, encompassing mechanical, electrical and electronic manufacturing capabilities within the same company. We have a wide range of standard products but distinguish ourselves by providing custom gas detection solutions with ease and minimal additional cost.

Gas sensor manufacturers find themselves looking to technological advancements by offering greater accuracy, enhanced efficiency, and augmented interoperability to edge out the competition. It is through advancements such as the wireless gas sensor that the industry is headed towards by combining wireless technology with their existing equipment by choosing from various protocols, such as peer-to-peer, blue tooth other Internet-specific protocol. The wireless gas sensor is the next logical step in technology as it eliminates the cost of expensive wiring and conduits, reducing the overall cost of installation of safety systems.
The CEN Series wireless gas detection and control panel uses pneumatic sampling to bring gas from each sensing location back to the central panel. The advantage of pneumatic sampling systems is the ability to filter the air stream at both the sensing location and at the panel to remove suspended particulate and other solid contaminants. The filtration process keeps the sensors clean and extends their lifespan, improving performance and saving money for the building operator. Since one sensor for each gas can be shared among multiple sampling locations, lower servicing costs result since fewer sensors are replaced at service intervals when compared with purely electronic gas detection systems.
Infrared gas detection Equipment: Began in the early 1970s when Acme was the first to adapt instrumentation-style equipment to the building market. Acme's infrared gas detection equipment is designed to control ventilation systems in buildings, most notably through carbon monoxide CO gas detection in underground parking garages. The infrared gas detection systems have three benefits: they provide air quality control; assure safety in environments where dangerous gases are present; and, conserve electricity because the ventilation equipment runs only when required. Other gases include: CO 2 for indoor air quality; diesel fumes detection for bus and truck terminals and unloading areas; Volatile Organic Compounds VOC for numerous industrial and office applications; R-123 refrigerant detection; and, O 2 deficiency detection.
A toxic gas leak detector is designed for industrial or building applications where hazardous gases are stored and leaks could cause great property and environmental damage. These systems are economical, rugged and easy to install and come with a large toxic gas leak detector variety suitable to most applications.
Acme Engineering products designs and manufactures combustible gas detection systems such as carbon monoxide CO combustible gas detection systems in underground parking garages, CO2 for indoor air quality, diesel fumes detection for bus and truck terminals and unloading areas, volatile organic compounds VOC for numerous industrial and office applications, R-123 refrigerant detection, and O2 deficiency detection for building ventilation control, process heating equipment for large commercial and industrial applications, automatic scraper-strainers for intake, process and effluent filtration. Canada.
The biosystems gas detection equipment shall have all of its components, including the controller, RS-485 communication module and relay outputs boards in a single enclosure. Multiple enclosures requiring inter-wiring are not acceptable.

The Control Panel shall incorporate the necessary logic circuits to operate the exhaust/supply fans and the motorized dampers for fresh air and/or exhaust according to the specified logic of ventilation. For example, if the biosystems gas detection equipment operated by the 100 PPM CO contacts does not reduce the CO level below this value within 30 minutes (3 to 60 minutes adjustable), the Control Panel shall go on visual and audible alarm and also provide a contact for remote alarm indication or supervision.
Acme has a continuous research and development program dedicated to selecting the best possible sensing technology and applying it to the HVAC marketplace. Acme’s natural gas sensors must offer a long life, stable performance, easy field calibration and when required, quick replacement.

In order to protect the natural gas sensors from damage and vandalism during construction period, the enclosure only, without its cover, shall be wall mounted. Install unit cover incorporating the circuit board and sensor only after construction has been completed and space is clean. Secure cover to enclosure using the vandal-proof screws included with the cover.

To maintain a healthy environment in an enclosed vehicular facility, install the carbon dioxide sensor to start the exhaust fans and open fresh air dampers when the CO concentration rises to prescribed levels, normally 25 or 35 PPM based on local building codes. By using demand-based ventilation control you can save up to 70% of the energy costs when compared to running the fans full time, especially in hot or cold climates where heating or cooling is an added expense.
Acme has extensive representation across North America and has expanded into Europe, Asia and Latin/South America over the past several years, to better serve our international clients. We offer engineers a free, no obligation service to evaluate their building plans, recommend solutions and lay out the gas sensors and logic of control. We invite you to share in our 30+ years of gas detection experience.

The interconnections between the Control Panel and gas sensors shall be made by a required number of branches consisting of 4 conductor 14 gauge wires. Each branch shall support a total length of 800ft and a maximum of eight (8) gas sensors.
Hazardous gas detection system design: Are you unsure how to layout your hazardous gas detection system and fan control logic? Consult with Acme’s design staff – provide us with your drawings, and we will lay out the system for you. You can trust Acme’s
engineers, who have laid our thousands of systems in over 30 years of service.

The DG-EN is usually installed in bus and truck terminals or maintenance facilities, package distribution warehouses and building loading docks where Diesel fumes pose a threat to indoor air quality. In order to protect the hazardous gas detection sensor from the Respirable Combustible Dust (RCD) present in Diesel fumes, Acme uses an air pump to draw the sample to the detection unit from the space, where it is filtered and passed to a solid-state infrared CO2 analyzer or an electrochemical NO2 analyzer

A Volatile Organic Compounds Detector is a gas detection VOC with two dry contacts and audible and visual alarms. Acme’s gas detection VOC - 2 is designed for enclosed spaces where chemical reagents or known VOC pollutants could leak into the air and pose a danger to personnel. This gas detection VOC can cover up to 10,000 sq. ft. of clear, open space. It is designed to operate two-speed fans using two dry contacts that close at the appropriate low and high concentration levels for the toxic gas being detected.
There are many uses for wireless gas detectors in the scientific and technical industries A wireless gas sensor are normally used to determine the component gases in automobile exhaust so as to measure the effectiveness of pollution control devices but uses the latest technology to eliminate cumbersome installation while giving the most precise readings possible.

After the wireless gas detectors have been put into operation, the owner-operator shall select the worst condition time for verification.
