Precision Medical Gas Testing offers medical gas outlet repair services. Leaking outlets (terminal units) result in increased costs to medical facilities due to product loss as well as additional electrical charges and equipment wear from extra running time on pump packages. Medical gas outlets often require repair as o-rings dry out and/or springs wear out. Outlets also require frequent cleaning due to contamination.

Precision Medical Gas Testing consults and works with the respiratory, nursing and maintenance staff to ensure a smooth repair is made with the least disruption to patient care.
