The latest generation of Testifire remains uniquely capable of producing smoke, heat and CO stimuli while benefiting from the experience of generation one. Enabling tests of fire detector sensors to be conducted independently, sequentially or simultaneously Testifire is equally suitable for single or multi-sensor detectors, point, or aspirating. Still the most advanced fire detector tester available today, Testifire is UL certified and approved by leading detector manufacturers from around the world.
The product range centres on two core models; the Testifire 1000 for smoke and heat fire detectors and the Testifire 2000 which includes CO fire detectors test capability and, from these, various kit options are available. To this can be added various accessories with stimuli being provided through replaceable capsules.
Generated on demand by the evaporation and re-condensation of specially formulated fluid contained in a replaceable capsule Testifire’s non-flammable, non-toxic and non-pressurised smoke stimulus is unique. Responding to environmental challenges and eliminating pressurised canisters of gas the product does not contain global warming agents or VOCs. With a carefully controlled particle size and smoke profile the stimulus is suitable for a wide variety of detection technologies while the method of stimuli production and delivery eliminates possibilities of detector damage caused by misuse.
Testifire’s heat is delivered by a focussed beam, initiated when a detector enters the Testifire cup breaking an IR beam. There are two heat settings, the first suitable for rate of rise and fixed temperature sensors up to 90°C (194°F) and the other for testing higher temperature sensors up to 100°C (212°F).
Carbon Monoxide (CO)
Delivered in a focussed stream and generated internally only as required from a benign activated carbon, Testifire’s CO production has been tailored carefully for the activation of CO Fire detectors without harm to the CO sensor (which can be damaged by less controlled sources of CO)**. The activated carbon is supplied in capsule form and, while Testifire produces a genuine non flammable, pure CO stimulus none is stored or produced under pressure.
