To be honest I'm quite gutted, our contract upgraded from the 455 and I wished they never did my FGA has been sent back twice now due to faulty reading I personally think it has something to do with the faster purge

For me this is the must have analyser for any gas engineer. We’ve used Anton in the past but converted over to Kane and think they are miles better on performance. The functions are easy to use, the screen is big and clear, there is a shortcut to start the analyser up to do a soundness test. It ticks all the boxes for me.

Brilliant analyser. Lots of settings. Can be used as a temperature probe, FGA, nanometer, differential pressure gauge... With other options too. Lots of settings with an aux option you can configure to display what you want.

Fantastic piece of equipment. I use this everyday.
The ony let down is the amount of time it takes to purge sometimes.
Lots of features that help with everyday tasks.

Chose this after having the kane 455. I love the Bluetooth function, so you can send test results to your phone via the app. Quick startup when turning on. Big display and reasonably priced maintenance costs compared to other brands.

Brought the 456 with the wirless bluetooth, it's a great bit of kit the only down side is you have to change the setting from printer to wirless if you need a hard copy left on site, Can't do them together☹️

Superb analyser, I'd never buy anything other than kane. Well designed, intuitive user interface, backed up with great service from kane, who unlike some other brands, you don't hear of shoddy and expensive recalibration services with Kane. The only choice imo!

Upgraded to the 456 from the kane 455 and happy with it so far. Like the 455 it is easy to use and has a large easy to read screen the printer is much quicker than the 455. Has some extra features compared to the 455 and it is more responsive to changes when taking readings.

Recently brought from Williams on there promotion
As my eurolyiser died after 9months
Brilliant bit of kit
Simple to use
I was skeptical about the readings at first to trailed it against a testo and Kane 455 it seems perfectly fine
The print out look very professional with company name and contact number on
Comes in a bag which is durable
Got a gas sniffer with it I don't rate that much tho

I had a anton sprint for a few years, but got sick of the expensive recalibration costs. Had a 455 Kane was more than happy with the analyser but decided to upgrade to the 456. Best analyser on the market in my opinion with excellent customer service

Asked on 30th December 2017 by SJB Plumbing & Heating

I have the 456 but do I need something else for it to work with Bluetooth? I am currently printing all my results but would like to send straight to iPad software.

Answered on 27th July 2018 by Gas On Sea

I have 456 and was told can add on the Bluetooth feature at an extra cost

Answered on 13th November 2018 by Fawkes Heating

Yes, you need to upgrade it with the optional Bluetooth module. This can be added when you send it in for a service/calibration.


Asked on 29th April 2017 by DCB Plumbing & Heating

Is it worth me upgrading from my 455 to the new 456?

Answered on 29th April 2017 by Drew Styles Plumbing & Heating

Depends what kind of work you do really, I love the 455

Answered on 29th April 2017 by DCB Plumbing & Heating

Self employed sole trader, so I do all aspics of gas works. Repair, service, install. Just wondering if its worth upgrading or using my 455 and running into the ground

Answered on 1st May 2017 by Hampshire Technical

I hear the commission feature is really good and it prints quicker.

Answered on 1st May 2017 by Modern Home Plumbing

I wouldn't upgrade unless yours is faulty or old, the 456 has a commissioning mode and purges quicker, 30 seconds I think but the 455 is still a great analyser.
