A-B-C™ “Always Be Calibrated” Solution

  • Bump’ tests detectors in thirty seconds – quick and simple calibration
  • Automatic calibration after any failed test or when calibration is due
  • Produces a tamper-proof calibration certificate acceptable to Class, Port State Control and Oil Majors
  • Uses only a minimum amount of gas necessary – saves money on wasted calibration gas from manual testing
  • One solution – complete supply of the equipment and gas through one point of contact

On-board Automatic Calibration Station for Portable Gas Detectors

The Always Be Calibrated A-B-C™ system will ensure you never waste a droplet of calibration gas ever again. Our self-calibration self-certification bump test station only uses the exact amount of gas required to calibrate your gas detectors! The A-B-C™ system delivers onboard automatic and fail-safe calibration and bump testing of your detectors during re-charging. The equipment automatically generates tamper-proof serial number specific calibration certificates, completely free from human intervention and error. Simply put the detectors in the A-B-C™ station and it does the rest.

In addition, the A-B-C™ solution provides you and your crews with unique training videos that give simple, step-by-step instructions on the setup, use and calibration of equipment.

Never again wait for on-shore certification: you’ll be able to produce instant, verifiable, tamper-proof certificates at any time at the touch of a button. Take the headache away from inspections and self-certificate your gas detection equipment whenever you need!
