Universal Bump Test Station for all Gas Detectors



Categories: ,
  • Is your gas detector working properly?
  • How do you know?

The AFC International Universal Bump Test Station is an easy to use device for the verification of sensor response of your multi gas or personal gas detectors. The Bump Test Station is universal and can be used with any gas detector on the market. This simple bump test can be performed in less than 60 seconds and will give you the piece of mind that your instrument is responding to gas properly, prior to entering a confined space or dangerous gas area in a plant.

OSHA recommends that “gas detectors used for confined space entry must be tested with gas prior to use…” The Universal Bump Test Station meets this requirement and can be modified to work with any make or model instrument on the market that has an internal or attachable sample pump. The flow meter on the front of the unit verifies that the instrument’s sample pump is working properly and in about 30 seconds all alarms on the instrument should e activated. If they are not, the instrument should not used and sent in for service.

We recommend that you use a gas concentration high enough to insure that all gas sensor alarms will be activated within 30 to 60 seconds.

The Universal Bump Test Station is a perfect compliment to any company’s calibration or maintenance schedule and can be customized to fit your gas detection program. The AFC International Bump Test Station is not intended to and/or should not be used to replace periodic instrument manufacturer’s recommended gas calibration interval! It is simply a test that can fill in the gaps between calibrations.
