Verify and Calibrate Any Alcohol Test Device
Simulators are used to verify the accuracy and to calibrate virtually any breath alcohol testing device. A simulator heats a precisely mixed solution of alcohol and water to 34 degrees C. A small amount alcohol in the solution evaporates into the air above the solution (called the headspace) inside the simulator. When air is forced into the simulator, the alcohol vapor in the headspace is forced through the outlet tube. The alcohol vapor in the headspace very closely approximates the breath of an intoxicated person.
Easy-to-Read Digital Thermometer
One of the most critical elements of a simulator is keeping the temperature at 34 degrees C. The RepCo simulator uses an easy-to-read digital thermometer that enables the operator to verify that the simulator is operating at the correct temperature. Digital thermometers are a huge improvement over the older mercury column thermometers that are so difficult to read correctly.
Plastic Jar Eliminates Breakage
Sometimes big innovations are simple ideas! RepCo simulators use a plastic jar to hold the simulator solution and to serve as the base for the simulator top. Every other simulator uses a glass jar. The plastic jar virtually eliminates one of the common problems of glass simulator jars: breaking the jar, or chipping the jar around the threads that allows air to leak out.
