New FasTest Connector for Testing of Gas-Fired Appliances

GasMateTM Connectors Designed with Non-Sparking Materials for Safe Run Testing

Minneapolis, MN—January 7, 2019—FasTest, Inc. introduces the new GasMate product series designed to simplify “hot run” testing of gas fired appliances.

FasTest’s GZNV

FasTest’s GasMate™ Series quick connection tools allow appliance manufacturers to rapidly and securely supply natural gas, propane or other fuel to the burner system in order to perform a run test. Two connector versions are offered; the GZNV lever-actuated model for connecting to common gas valves with an internal pipe thread, and the G60V sleeve-actuated model for connecting to extension pipes with external pipe threads.  Both styles are ergonomically designed, and also feature an internal shut-off valve that seals the flow path when the connector is in the disconnected position.

FasTest’s G60V

The connectors’ critical components are made from non-sparking materials to minimize potential for spark generation. FasTest has also designed a version of the GZNV connector with an extended shaft for long reach applications where the gas valve is recessed inside the enclosure cabinet.

The GasMate connectors are easily serviced in the field; FasTest stocks seals and other wear parts to help customers maximize production uptime in the manufacturing facility.
