Mini Alcohol Gas Can
The Mini Alcohol Gas Can is a cost-effective alcohol gas standard for calibrating and conducting accuracy checks on the Alco-Sensor III or Alco-Sensor FST and when the device is being used to perform screening tests for non-evidential testing programs, such as substance abuse treatment programs, shelters, and halfway houses. Law Enforcement and other such agencies that perform evidential-quality or DOT alcohol testing should only use the evidential-quality Alcohol Gas Tanks for calibration and accuracy checks. Each mini alcohol gas can has enough gas to perform roughly 10 tests.
Economical Calibration Standard
The Mini Alcohol Gas Can is the most economical, non-evidential dry gas calibration standard available. The Mini Alcohol Cans are ideal for smaller alcohol testing programs that perform a minimal amount of Accuracy Checks each year. Typically these programs have only one or two Alco-Sensors, and do Accuracy Checks once a month. The Mini Alcohol Cans provide an affordable solution to performing Accuracy Checks for these low-volume alcohol testing programs.
Perform Accuracy Checks and Calibration Adjustments
Best practice when using the Alco-Sensor III or Alco-Sensor FST is to do periodic (at least monthly), Accuracy Checks to ensure the instrument is working correctly. Performing periodic Accuracy Checks gives staff assurance they can rely on the accuracy of Alco-Sensor test results with clients. Most Alco-Sensors hold their accuracy for months or even years. However, when an Accuracy Check shows that the Alco-Sensor is not reading accurately the operator can perform a Calibration Adjustment using the Mini Alcohol Can.
