How often should I calibrate my gas detector?

When we think of gas detector calibration and how often it must be performed, it is dependent on many variables. First and foremost is determining if a gas sensor is out of calibration. The best way to establish this is through a “bump” or functional test using a certified standard gas mixture of known concentration. …
