Testing recommendations for toxic-gas detectors
December 3, 2009

We have long represented Analytical Technology, Inc. (ATI) and their wide range of fixed-point toxic-gas detection systems. In a recent bulletin, ATI notes that many sites fail to test their gas-detection systems frequently enough to ensure the health and safety of the people around. While there's no single testing frequency that suits all situations (ATI recommends conducting a risk assessment to determine the right frequency for any particular site), the unfortunate fact is that many places only notice that their gas-detection systems are out of order well after the sensor has outlived its useful service life. Routine checks of toxic-gas detection systems should be considered a matter of priority maintenance, since their effective operation and performance is critical to the welfare of the people around. Even the most-reliable gas-detection systems around (like ATI's) need regular checking.
