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 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.
Minneapolis, MN— December 6, 2018—FasTest, Inc. has extended their standard 70 Series product family for fuel rail applications to include connections to SAE J2044 half-inch fittings. Since launching the original 70 Series for fuel rail product offering, FasTest has noticed significant growth in leak testing of larger sized Fuel Rails and has worked with customers to design the ideal connection for these fittings.
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.
