Testing and Certification
FLO-LOC Products International maintains its own complete seismic testing facility where each FLO-LOC Seismic Sensor is thoroughly tested and certified with copies of its certification and verification of accuracy supplied to each customer.
FLO-LOC Products International adheres to the standards and requirements set by the State of California for its approval of seismic shut-off devices for gas valves. AWWA has recommended the use of those same standards in the water industry. The California Division of the State Architect (CADSA) requires that any seismic sensor designed to operate as a gas shut-off device and sold in the State of California be tested and certified by one of its official list of qualified testing laboratories. The initial testing and certification of our seismic sensor was done by National Technical Systems (NTS) of Fullerton, California. NTS is the recognized leader in aerospace component testing and is used by organizations such as the Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Its standards are far more severe than those laboratories generally used for the testing of commercial products such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL). FLO-LOC Products International also maintains its own complete seismic testing facility, where each FLOLOC Seismic Sensor is thoroughly tested and certified with copies of its certification and verification of accuracy supplied to each customer. Our own testing equipment is periodically tested and certified, traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), by the following:
- Oscilloscopes: ICC Instrument Co., Inc., Santa Ana, California
- Accelerometers: Excalibur Engineering, Irvine, California
FLO-LOC Products International uses primarily UL approved components, particularly where such components come in contact with 120 VAC. FLO-LOC Seismic Controllers and POWERPAKS are UL and ULC certified. All FLO-LOC products operate on safe, 24VDC and contain only the highest quality mechanical, electrical and electronic components available to the aerospace industry.
