The T3 gas tester from Crowcon Detection Instruments is designed to ensure that the company’s Tetra:3 (T3) portable multi-gas detectors comply with relevant national and regional safety regulations and individual company requirements.

The device feeds the T3’s sensors a known concentration of gas — a process known as ‘bumping’ — to ensure they are working correctly.

According to the company, operation is straightforward: when a T3 is inserted into the gas tester, the T3 automatically switches into ‘bump’ mode and either passes or fails. Once the test is complete, the T3 is removed and the bump result is then accepted by the user and automatically logged.

The T3 gas tester can bump for flammable, oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide and carbon dioxide sensors and is suitable for both on-site and in-field gas testing.

Key benefits

  • A power supply is not needed as the T3 detector does all the work.
  • Capable of testing up to four gases within just 60 seconds, the device offers a fast and simple way of ensuring all T3 detectors in a fleet are working correctly.
  • The device is also capable of checking if a T3’s visual and audible alarms are working correctly.
  • When used with a fixed-flow regulator, the gas tester allows approximately 100 bumps per 34 litres of quad gas (four gases in one cylinder), making it a cost-effective option for owners of T3 detectors.
  • The T3 gas tester is claimed to be rugged, robust and lightweight, and is fast and simple to use.
