CALIBRATION / FLOW TEST

To guarantee the safety of the workers, breathing apparatus must be flow tested every year as required by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Codes and Standards. Flow test,  known as Calibration, ensures that an SCBA is performing to the manufacturer’s specifications. Unlike basic inspections, SCBA calibration requires specialized equipment, specifically a breathing machine. 

CALIBRATION / FLOW TEST GUIDELINES

The following table summarizes MSA’s required frequency for overhaul and flow testing:

AVERAGE SCBA USAGE REULATORS AUDI LARM OVERHAUL FREQUENCY FLOW TEST FREQUENCY
1 cylinder per day or greater
Every 3 year
Every year
1 cylinder every other day
Every 8 year
Every year
1 cylinder per week or less
Every 15 year
Every year

A decision to retire apparatus should be based on a SCBA’s performance data and whether that data meets the specified level of performance as defined in the maintenance requirements from MSA.

*The unit of SCBA use is defined as the consumption of one 30-minute cylinder of air. If three cylinders of air are used, the SCBA would be considered to have been used three times.

HYDROSTATIC TESTING

SCBA Tanks should be refilled every after use to ensure full length of service when needed. We conduct refilling of grade D breathing air to all types of SCBA cylinders.

HOW TO KNOW IF YOUR SCBA IS IN NEED OF HYDROSTATIC TESTING?

Table below is the information guide needed on when to have your SCBA be hydrotested starting from the Date of Manufacture, which indicated on the body of the cylinder. If it undergone a hydrotest before, see the date on the round metal disk wrapped around the neck of the cylinder. Contact us if you have inquiry.

GAS DETECTOR SERVICES

CALIBRATION

MSA XCell Sensors have an expected life of more than four (4) years which translates to fewer sensor replacements during the instrument’s life and lower costs. MSA’s gas detection instruments are designed to notify users as sensors reach end-of-life which ensures reliability of the instruments. It is vital that portable gas detectors are maintained and calibrated properly. All sensors can eventually expire due to loss of sensitivity, slowed response time or both, with exposure to work conditions. MSA recommends full calibration of gas detectors every 6 months or at least once a year to ensure maximum accuracy of the instrument.

REPLACEMENT OF SENSORS

We keep an inventory of MSA sensors, allowing us to provide quick replacements and get your gas detector back in service as soon as possible. As we are a distributor of MSA, we are limited to their sensors only.

SCBA REFILLING COMPRESSOR

ANNUAL MAINTENANCE

Performing routine maintenance on your air compressor extends the life of the equipment, ensures smooth running of operations and prevents interruptions and unexpected downtime. It is done to guarantee continuous generation of safe Grade D breathing air. Maintenance includes oil and filter change, inspection of intake filter, and other operational checks.
