Powerpak in-house glove testing services
After you call us, we pick up from the location of your choice. We just need to know how many pairs we’re picking up, and what the Class Rating of the gloves are.
The first step in our receiving process is to clean the gloves with water and a mild cleaning solution to get rid of any debris from daily wear.
This step is required by OSHA as part of the inspection, and indicates if there are holes, tears, ozone cuts. The glove is filled with air (no more than 1.25X the original size). If passed, the glove is then turned inside-out and checked again.
Once gloves are hung in the machine it is filled with water. Settings are then adjusted by the technician to align with the Class Rating of your glove. The machine is closed, and the process begins. The water in the tank is energized and voltage is applied for the appropriate amount of time.
All electrical gloves must be tested prior to being placed into service. Once in circulation, they must be tested every six months. Testing may be required more often if company protocol indicates, or if gloves show evidence of damage.
Certification can be provided for any fails, and any gloves that have passed are packed and shipped out on the first available run.
