The Macurco 6 & 12 Series detection family requires routine testing and calibration. Each detector has a corresponding testing/calibration kit to test and calibrate the detectors in the field. Sensors may drift over time so it is recommend to have a maintenance plan to ensure detectors responding to gas appropriately. A gas calibration is the process of exposing a sensor to a target gas at a specific concentration and then adjusting the gas detector to read that gas concentration properly.
Macurco recommends testing and calibration at a least once per year at a minimum but depending on the application and risk potential of the application a greater frequency might be needed.
