F.A.I.T. – Field Air Inspection Tool:
Insulating equipment shall be inspected for damage before each day’s use and immediately following any incident that can reasonably be suspected of causing damage. Insulating gloves shall be given an air test, along with the inspection.
Note to paragraph (c)(2)(ii): ASTM F1236-96 (2012), Standard Guide for Visual Inspection of Electrical Protective Rubber Products, presents methods and techniques for the visual inspection of electrical protective equipment made of rubber. This guide also contains descriptions and photographs of irregularities that can be found in this equipment.
If you work around energized circuits, the Field Air Inflation Tool (FAIT) is a valuable safeguard. The FAIT tool meets the above standards for the inspection of insulating rubber gloves.
Simply clamp the FAIT around the bead of your rubber gloves and roll to inflate gloves. This creates a tight seal for better inflation and superior visual inspection of your rubber gloves. Must roll the glove at least 1.5 inches with the FAIT clamped to the bead. For 11″ gloves, blow additional air into the glove before using the FAIT to better inflate & inspect the rubber. Make sure to test both the inside and outside of gloves & listen for punctures.
The FAIT makes the daily visual inspection of your rubber insulating gloves simple and efficient.
Benefits & Features:
Portable: The FAIT Tool is designed to fit in any glove bag. 11″ long.
Fast: Test is quick & effective. Much quicker than the Salisbury G99 portable glove inflator.
Affordable: Fraction of the price of Salisbury G99 portable glove inflator.
Compliance: The FAIT meets the OSHA 1910.137 and requirement for the glove inspection air test.
