An automated ARTM for in-testing services regulators. Operators select the pressure regulator from a pull-down menu on a 19-inch touch screen and all the tests are automatically conducted, reported and archived.
Regulator Testing Machines (RTM) for in-testing residential regulators as well as larger commercial and industrial regulators were installed.

In the old days, gas utilities controlled the quality of the regulator installation by in the field testing to assure the customer that set point was accurate and lock-up worked. The advanced regulator IRV and OPSO technology can not be tested in the field. That's one of the reasons why the trend is to in-test pressure regulators in the meter shop before they are installed in the field.
