Annual Testing

  The Annual Inspection Program of Medical Gas Specialists, Inc. is the most complete and user friendly available on the market today. Please take time to consider the advantage of our program. Most procedures in bold print in this proposal represent add-on charges for other testing companies. The additional testing done by Medical Gas Specialists, Inc. insures the highest standard of patient safety. All services will be performed and fully documented to meet or exceed current JCAHO, NFPA, CGA, and OSHA recommendations.

Medical Gas Outlets:

  All medical gas outlets will be tested for proper function to include flows, fit, keying, leaks, labeling and color codes, particulate contaminations, cross connection, and pressure drops. Hoses will be checked for condition. Minor problems will be repaired on-site at no additional labor charge. Flows will be measured with a DWYER instruments 0-600 SCFH flowmeter. Cross connection testing will be performed with a MiniOx O2 analyzer. Pressure drops will be measured with a 0-100 psi pressure gauge. At the end of each system, a test for medical air dew point will be performed using an Ohmic Ceramic Dew Point Monitor.

Particulate Contaminants:

  Particulate contaminants will be tested by flowing each outlet at maximum flow into a white filter material. A test for particulate contaminants will be performed at the end of each zone with a .45 micron millipore filter. All filters will be included as part of documentation.

Medical Gas Inlets:

  All medical gas inlets will be tested for proper function to include flows, fit, keying, leaks, labeling and color codes, cross connection, and pressure drops. Hoses will be checked for proper condition. Minor problems will be repaired on-site at no additional labor charge. Flows will be measured utilizing an AEROS INSTRUMENTS vacutest flowmeter, pressure drops will be determined via the built in 0-30"HG vacuum gauge.

Zone Valves:

  All zone cutoff valves will be tested for proper function if available and appropiate labeling, leaks and cross connection. An inventory list of zone valve boxes will be prepared with boxes numbered for easy identification. This inventory list will be turned over to the hospital for their files.

Area Alarms:

  All areas (remote) alarms will be tested for proper function. All audible and visual signals will be verified, in addition all alarm setpoints will be adjusted and verified to be within NFPA parameters. An identification number will be assigned to each alarm and an inventory list of alarms will be given to the hospital. Minor problems will be repaired on-site at no additional labor charge. All alarm setpoints will be verified through the use of a MEDICAL GAS SPECIALISTS remote alarm pressure test device.

Multi-Signal Alarms:

  All multi-signal (master) alarms will be tested for proper function. All audible and visual signals will be verified. All alarm setpoints will be adjusted and verified to be within NFPA parameters, if it can be done without disruption to the normal operation of the hospital. An identification number will be assigned to each alarm and an inventory list of alarms will be given to the hospital. Minor problems will be repaired on-site at no additional labor charge.

Gaseous Purity:

  All gases will be tested for gaseous contaminants to standards established by CGS, USP and OSHA. Gaseous purity will be tested utilizing a Miran 1B2 infra-red spectrophotometer and Sensidyne/Gastec Detector Tubes. A test will be performed for all gases at the source and then at the end of the piping system to compare results. Air dew point will be determined utilizing an Ohmic Ceramic dew point monitor.

Gas Delivery Manifolds:

  All high pressure gas delivery manifolds will be completely tested for proper function to include the following: Manifolds will be completely leak checked, primary and secondary pressures will be checked and adjusted if necessary, reserve systems will be tested for proper operation, delivery pressures will be checked and adjusted if necessary. Any audible or visual alarms will be tested for proper function. Inspect valves at manifold for proper identification. Any minor problems will be repaired at no additional charge.

Vacuum Pumps and Air Compressors:

  All vacuum pumps, air compressors, and other ancillary source equipment such as filter cabinets and air dryers will be tested for proper function--to include labeling, normal and back-up operation, bearing noises, belt tensions, starter contact condition, oil levels, filter conditions, motor current draw, and unit pump down time. Inspect valves at pumps and compressors for proper identification. Minor adjustments required will be done at no additional charge.
