Hand tighten connector nut (14) so preformed packings (15) and (16) make a tight, vapor-free seal.
Remove remaining exhalation valves (11) from suit (9) and install plugs (4). Plugs (4) are installed in the same
manner as test kit adaptor with hoses (5).
Ensure encapsulating protective suit (9) passthrough (17) is closed. Passthrough (17) will be closed if there is no
Securely close slide fastener (18) on suit (9).
The test kit adaptor hoses may be connected to either pressure test kit fitting.
Connect test kit adaptor hoses (5) to pressure test kit (1) fittings (19) and (20).
Connect air supply line (6) with quick connect fitting (2) to male connector (3) in pressure test kit (1) air inlet (7).
Turn on the air supply, not to exceed 100 PSIG.
Over inflation hazard to encapsulating protective suits. Do not inflate the suit over four inches of water
gauge when pressure testing. Over inflation can cause suit damage requiring replacement of the
encapsulating protective suit.
Turn pressure test valve (8) counterclockwise to inflate encapsulating protective suit (9).
Turn pressure test valve (8) clockwise to close when the pressure reaches three inches of water gauge on
pressure gauge (21).
Wait at least one minute to fill out the wrinkles in encapsulating protective suit (9).
Turn off the air supply.
Disconnect the air supply line by removing quick connect (2) from male connector (3).
Reduce the pressure to two inches of water gauge on pressure gauge (21) by slowly turning pressure test valve
(8) counterclockwise to open and bleed the air off.
Turn pressure test valve (8) clockwise to close when the pressure reaches two inches of water gauge on pressure
gauge (21) and immediately begin timing.
