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 Drives Lean Practices in Leak Testing Fuel Rails

New Connection Verification™ Technology Eliminates Testing Waste

Minneapolis, MN— September 12, 2018—FasTest, Inc. has partnered with a US-based vehicle component manufacturer to help maximize production output of their fuel rail production process. Before working with FasTest, the manufacturer’s leak testing process was prone to placement errors throughout the testing process, leading to a high number of false failures that caused significant re-test time. That re-test time cost the manufacturer approximately $90,000 per year!

The customer required their solution to be automated, safe, and highly accurate in order to eliminate opportunities for operator error.

FasTest Adds to Refrigeration Quick Disconnect (RQD) Product Line

RQD Series now Available for “Keyed” PCU Models 64 & 78 Tips

Minneapolis, MN— May 7, 2018—FasTest, Inc. has extended their Refrigeration Quick Disconnect (RQD) product series to include connections to the silver color PCU Model 64 and Model 78 quick coupling tips (a.k.a. “inserts”, “nipples”” or “plugs”) which have a different, non-interchangeable profile than the more common black color PCU Model 61 & 66 tips.  This provides an effective mechanical “keying” system that prevents accidental misconnection of fluid lines containing incompatible media that should not be mixed.
