Your brand new gas detection system has been installed, tested and is ready to go, but that’s not the end of the story. Just like any other high-functioning mechanism, your gas detection system will require regular maintenance. In fact, in order to meet industry regulations and operational standards, your gas detection systems must be checked every 6 months to a year. This is not only to ensure peak performance, but also your safety and peace of mind. But if you’re thinking you need to start a whole new search to look for a company that performs gas detector checks, think again. MDC Systems Inc. is here to help with the routine checkups for your gas detection systems in San Jose, CA, too.

No matter what type of gas detection system you have installed, from a thermal conductivity system to an electrochemical sensor, our techs are trained to help you maintain the system and ensure it is always operating correctly. Here’s what you can expect from a routine gas detector checkup from MDC Systems Inc.:

  • Delivery of the specific certified gas sample to each sensor type.
  • Connecting to the sensor electronically, to verify electrical readings when no sensor readout is available, to ensure proper set points are reached.
  • Using pressure demand regulators for sample draw type sensors, in order to verify the pumps integrity, as well as the sensor’s reaction to the gas.
  • Using set rate regulators with the specified manufacturer’s calibration cup, for a tight seal for diffusion-type area sensors.
  • Building Calibration Reports documenting the sensors’ ID, gas type, range, alarm set points and calibration set points.
  • Documenting the pre-findings and post-settings on the calibration report.
  • Affixing calibration stickers to each sensor passing the calibration service.
  • Delivering a completed calibration report for maintenance recordkeeping purposes.
  • Preparing cost estimates for repairs to the system upon completion of the calibration services, if some of the sensors failed calibration and are in need of replacement.
