Environmental Testing Services’s outlet/inlet performance test format details critical information about the functionality of the piped medical gas system for optimal patient care.
For this reason, our recommendation is to test every medical gas outlet and vacuum inlet in the entire facility.
We evaluate each outlet/inlet with the hospital equipment attached and detached in order to assess:
- Adequate flow rate
- Oxygen percentage
- Static pressure
- The presence of any odor
- The presence of any leaks (Outlet leaks are costly. Oxygen outlet leaks are also a fire hazard)
We include all flexible connectors, booms and columns in our test.
