BW 4 Gas Standard Bump Test and Calibration Gas, CG-Q34-4
Your gas monitor needs to be bump tested and calibrated regularly to make sure it is functioning properly. This 34 Liter standard bump test and calibration gas for BW Honeywell gas detection units contains specific gas concentrations.
- Methane (CH4) - 2.5 percent
- Oxygen (O2) - 18.0 percent
- Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) - 25 ppm
- Carbon monoxide (CO) - 100 ppm
Because of HazMat restriction, calibration gas must be shipped UPS Ground. Also note BW 4-gas calibration mix has a shelf life of two years. Don't use expired gas to calibrate or bump test a monitor.
Note: calibration gas is not returnable. Please check your selection carefully before ordering.
For the Following Monitors:
- GasAlert Quattro
- GasAlert Max XT II
- GasAlertMicro 5
- GasAlertMicro 5 PID
- GasAlertMicroClip XL
- GasAlertMicroClip X3
The Micro 5 PID also requires the Isobutylene Calibration Gas.

How many monitors will this product calibrate?1 answer
While there is no exact number of calibrations offered by the CG-Q34-4 quad cal gas, I can offer some guidelines. The recommended constant flow regulator for diffusion instruments puts out 0.5 liters per minute. The BW GasAlert Max gas detector has a 2 minute calibration cycle. One half liter per minute x 2 minutes = 1 liter of cal gas per calibration. Given that the cylinder contains 34 liters of gas, we should get approximately 34 calibrations.
There are certainly variables here. How precisely the regulator is cycled on and off, how many bump tests you might do, etc. On pumped instruments, such as the GasAlert Max XT II, a demand flow regulator may be used in place of the constant flow type. This can conserve gas, as gas only flows when the instrument is pumping.
Just got the shipment of calibration gas BW 4-Gas Calibration Mix CG-Q34-4 and I can't find an expiration date on container or paper work. Please provide info on how to find expiration date.1 answer
