When a gas detector is turned on, you can see that the battery and display are working properly, but what about the internal electronics which play a critical role in your protection? Do the sensors and alarms all work, have they been inhibited by using the wrong cleaning solution or have their openings become obstructed?
A bump test is the only way to ensure the whole gas detector unit is working properly. It checks that the sensors respond to the target gas and verifies that the display reacts. It confirms that all the alarms are activated, and the detector goes properly into alarm.
Bump testing your device does not remove the need to have your gas detectors inspected, calibrated and serviced periodically by gas detection specialists like KDF. Contact us to order your gas and regulators to complete your bump testing.
