That’s the darn there alcohol stimulator – it heats up and stimulates those alcohol molecules so that if you hook up the tube to your date’s nose, you can get her sniffing the demon vapors … keep that thing at 93.2 degrees Fahrenheit!
Glen Neeley says:
A. This is generally called a simulator.
B. Guth 34C model.
C. Simulate a human breath test to check calibrations of the breath tester.
D. NIST Mercury-in-Glass serialized reference thermometer. The Simulator must be heated to 34 degrees C. The thermometer tells the monkey that that it is okay to push a button to run a check.
E. If the intended purpose is to support convictions of innocent people, then yes. However, if the intended purpose is to simulate a human breath, it does not do that. It is a closed container heated to a controlled temperature. A human is not a closed jar and the temperature is not controlled. A human has too many variables to be compared to a closed jar.
