Breathing Air Testing
NSN 6665-07-473-8300 (Air Test Kit)

 

Description

Air used by firefighters must meet or exceed grade D air, as defined by the Compressed Gas Association pamphlet G-7.1, and must be tested quarterly as mandated by the National Institute of Safety and Health (NIOSH) and Navy Occupational Safety and Health (NAVOSH). To meet this requirement air testing is done with commercially available test kits. Kits test for oxygen, carbon monoxide, water, oil and carbon dioxide and provide on-the-spot results.
