BW Technologies GasAlertMicroClip PAM calibration accessories

'Bump testing' and routine calibration of safety gas detectors is essential to ensure correct operation.

'Bump Testing' - Performance check
BW recommends to 'bump test' the sensors fitted to safety gas detectors before each day's use to confirm their ability to respond to gas by exposing the detector to a gas concentration that exceeds the alarm setpoints, manually verify that the audible and visual alarms are activated and to calibrate the detector if the readings are not within the specified limits.

Calibration
Gas detectors must be calibrated on a regular schedule, depending on use and sensor exposure to poisons and contaminants. BW recommends calibrating at least once every 180 days (6 months). The combustible gas sensor must be checked with a known concentration of calibration gas after any known exposure to catalyst contaminants/poisons (sulfur compounds, silicon vapors, halogenated compounds, etc).

  • To calibrate or bump test your gas detectors you will need:
    • 3517-003 - Honeywell calibration test gas (maximum shelf life 36 months)
    • 3516-001 - Calibration gas regulator
    • 3580-001 - Test cap and hose (usually supplied with each detector at time of purchase)
    • Approximatley 34 tests should be possible from each canister of calibration test gas
    • Calibration test gas may also be used for bump testing
Fleet management
Fleet Manager II PC software is also available for use with the IR connectivity kit or, for the larger fleet, the MicroDock II automated bump test and calibration station to manage your gas detector fleet and maintain records.

Warning:
Always read and understand the gas detector user manual completely before operating or servicing.
