Regulations require regular testing of gas monitoring equipment to ensure that the instrument will work as and when required. The Enforcer allows you to easily comply with regulations when using the Impact multigas monitor without the need for costly test facilities and third parties.
- “Bump” testing may be required before use of any portable gas detector. This involves exposing each gas sensor to a known concentration of target gas and ensuring that it responds correctly. If not, the unit must be re-calibrated or serviced to replace those parts not working.
- Personal gas monitors are normally calibrated every 6 months. Typically this requires specialist knowledge and equipment that is costly or the work is sub-contracted to a third party. During this time instruments are not available for use and so could delay essential operations or force additional monitors to be purchased. The Enforcer calibrates Impact multi-gas monitors fitted with Oxygen, flammable, Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen Sulphide sensors in less than two minutes. Volumes and flow rates are minimised to allow approximately 200 calibrations per cylinder of gas making calibration as low in cost as a ‘Bump’ test. Impact instruments when used with The Enforcer are always available for use. Calibration results are recorded for printing at a later date via the optional PC software thereby ensuring that instrument histories are always available if required.
