The new I-Test bump testing and calibration station from Crowcon is designed specifically to test and verify that the company’s Gas-Pro portable gas detectors are in a compliant state.
It comes at a time when bump testing (gas testing) standards are becoming ever-stricter globally, says Crowcon, with the demands on fleet managers to control bump and calibration records increasingly stringent.
The I-Test station (pictured) simplifies this process as much as possible.
There is no need to turn the test gas on and off, with the flow regulator automatically pulling in the correct amount and concentration of gas for each bump.
The I-Test also starts automatically, as soon as a Gas-Pro detector is inserted, without the need to press any buttons. The device then verifies that all gas sensors are responding to a known value of gas and that the filters are clear and good for use, while also testing that audible and visual alarms are working and thereby giving the user full confidence that a unit is compliant for site use.
In addition, the I-Test informs the operator if a gas cylinder is empty or has expired.
The accompanying I-Test Manager software tracks which Gas-Pro units need calibrating and allows the storage, interrogation and convenient presentation of large amounts of bump testing data. Calibration certificates are automatically created and stored and many different types of reports and graphs can be created for easy interpretation.
