The touch sensitive aerosol dispenser is also on a swing frame. The robust, injection-moulded design allows it to withstand the rigours of everyday use. It allows the test gas canister to be pre-pressed so that only a small upward pressure is needed to release the gas. The transparent cup allows the user to see the illuminated LED of the activated detector. The dispenser and patented diaphragm conserves the aerosol, and detector testing is efficient and fast using a minimum amount of test gas.
The test aerosol is the result of an extensive two year research programme providing the most efficient and safest way to test both ion and photo smoke detectors. With a minimum impact to health, safety and the environment, the non-toxic, non-flammable particles allow fast response and clearing times and leaves smallest amount of residue. No damage to the detector plastic and components is also ensured.
