How do I calibrate my gas sensor for ammonia (NH3)?Ammonia gas is a very commonly used toxic gas that can be found in many applications, most commonly the petrochemical, wastewater and chemical industries. If you have ammonia gas at your facility and there is a possibility that people could be exposed to that gas, you are required to have sensors in the area of your facility where the NH3 is stored. To ensure that your sensors are operating correctly, they must be calibrated periodically. The ACD calibration gas instruments are the best method to calibrate your fixed or portable NH3 gas detectors.

The GENie QC-1 provides ammonia calibration gas. The QC-50 and QC-100 units are bump testers for functional testing of sensors.

Ammonia QuickCheck Vials (QCV) are sold in economical 12-packs and can be used in any of the ACD ammonia generating products.

The following instruments provide ammonia calibration gas:

The QC-1 provides state of the art technology allowing ammonia cal gas generation utilizing a stable and reliable medium. The QC-1 allows the ammonia concentration to be changed within the range of 10 to 150 PPM (parts per million).

The QC-1 utilizes a small, disposable QuickCheck Vial with a known liquid concentration of the gas to be generated. This vial emits a small quantity of gas when placed in the QC-1. A photoionization detector (PID) and mass flow controller are used in a process control circuit, allowing precise control of the calibration gas output.

ACD QC-50 Ammonia bump tester

QC-50 Calibration Gas Bump Tester
(850-1050-00)

The QC-50 from provides a quick and easy method of checking the performance of gas detection systems. The QC-50 utilizes revolutionary technology allowing a functional check (or 'bump test') as needed or required by law. The unique QuickCheck Vial (QCV) utilizes a stable, safe and reliable delivery method allowing ease of shipment, storage and use. The QC-50 is currently available for ammonia, hydrogen chloride, toluene and hexane.

The QCV used in the QC-50 are small, disposable vials with a small amount of the gas to be tested in liquid form in a sealed inner ampoule. Breaking the inner ampoule allows the liquid to absorb into a filter which then diffuses out the gas. Simply squeezing the hand aspirated bulb will allow a test concentration of gas to flow by the gas detector, verifying its operation.

ACD QC-100 Ammonia bump tester

QC-100 Calibration Gas Bump Tester
(850-1100-00)

The QC-100 provides a quick and easy method of checking the performance of gas detection systems. The QC-100 utilizes revolutionary technology allowing a calibration functional check or 'bump test' as needed. The unique QuickCheck Vials (QCV) utilize a stable, safe and reliable delivery method allowing ease of shipment, storage and use. The QC-100 is currently available for ammonia and hydrogen chloride as well as PPM ranges of hexane and toluene.

The QCV used in the QC-100 are small, disposable vials with a small amount of the gas to be tested in liquid form in a sealed inner ampoule. Breaking the inner ampoule allows the liquid to absorb into a filter which then diffuses out the gas. The motorized pump in the QC-100 provides a continuous output of calibration check gas, and the needle-valve allows users to adjust the amount of gas being generated. This gas concentration can be checked against a calibrated instrument for higher accuracy, or simply used as a bump test device.

The QC-100 bump tester is CE approved
