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 Introduces New High Purity Gas Filling Quick Connector

Vacuum Optimized Quick Connector Increases Specialty Gas Revenue

Minneapolis, MN—July 25, 2018—FasTest, Inc. introduces the HPG580, a new quick connection tool for efficient filling of specialty gas cylinders. Many facilities have a difficult time meeting demand for specialty gas cylinders. Most facilities use inefficient twist-on fittings because legacy quick connectors will not hold a leak-tight seal under the extreme vacuum levels required during the high-purity filling process. FasTest’s new vacuum optimized HPG580 quick connector solves this problem.

The HPG580 was designed with vacuum optimized internal geometry that allows for reliable filling and a setup process that is 90% faster than using twist-on fittings. The industry leading 1×10-9 sccm helium vacuum leak rate maintains seal down to 30 micron. “Our goal was to create a connection tool that would help our customers deliver at least one extra specialty gas batch per day” said Dustin Sirny, Director of Advanced Technologies & Markets.”By delivering an extra batch per day, the new HPG 580 tool can help fill plants increase annual specialty gas revenue by over a million dollars.” To learn more about FasTest’s New HPG580 visit our website.
