Natural Gas Shielded Solenoid Valve Tester

Bartol Mag-Probe Non-Contact Solenoid Valve and Relay Magnetic Tester

natural gas The Bartol Mag-Probe is a non-contact Magnetic Test Instrument used to conduct tests on solenoid valves and relays.  It is fast, portable and safe to use.  There are many uses for the Bartol Mag-Probe but the one use that stands out the most is when it’s used in very flammable industries such as natural gas and oil.  Listen to what John Rojas has today about the Mag-Probe.  John is a natural gas electronic technician.  The Bartol Mag-Probe is a Non-Contact Instrument that is used for testing solenoid valves and relays.  It is intrinsically safe and can be used in climates ranging from 80 below zero to +180 degrees.  It’s performance is not affected by heat, water, humidity, a vacuum, and is made from non-conductive material.

Natural Gas Company Employee Testimonial

Hi Bob,

Your Mag-Probe is a time saver. I work for a gas company and almost everything is explosion proof.  To test a solenoid valve without your Mag-Probe tester we would have to open the explosion proof housing to check the voltage across the solenoid.  This can be time consuming.  With your probe we just hold it up against the solenoid and watch the LED light up when the solenoid is energized.  We have been using them for years and what a time saver.

Thank You,

John Rojas

About the Author

Bob Bartol has spent his whole life working with electronics in almost every capacity and spent many hours in Physics classes.

He currently holds 4 U.S. patents and has been making a living off one of the patents “The Bartol Mag-Probe” for over twenty years. Bartol Research’s Mag-Probe now has a global reach and is dramatically reducing trouble shooting downtime anywhere a solenoid valve. relay, or contactor is used.

F111 Air Force Projects – European Flight Competition
January 1968

Bob attended electronics school in the Air Force. Upon graduation he was assigned to a fighter wing in Germany. During his assignment he prepared seven aircraft for European competition. The fighter wings aircraft won the competition.

Bob then returned to the United States and taught advanced radar for two years.

Two years later, he returned to Europe. During this assignment, Air Force headquarters Europe selected Bob to open a Precision Measuring Equipment Laboratory (P.M.E.L) in England. It was the first of its kind in the Air Force.

Upon his return to the United States, Air Force headquarters assigned Bob to Air Force research command in Florida. This was strictly a scientific assignment for research and development.

After three years he moved from Eglin AFB in Florida to Edwards Air Force Base in California where he had direct contact with the National Bureau of Standards and supported research and development aircraft.

During this assignment, he designed a modification for the TF X fighter (F-111). This modification made possible an additional 9800 flying hours per year. The F111 was the first swing wing aircraft in history. General Dynamics completed the modification prior to acceptance by the U.S. Air Force.

As a result of increasing this flying time Bob Received an award from Edwards Air Force Base for Increasing flying time of the F111 by 9,800 hours per year. The Award was Presented by Colonel Grumbles to TSGT Bob Bartol on June 17, 1963
