Gas Tightness Test & Purging in Essex
PHS Essex Engineers are highly qualified individuals who are Gas Safe certified and ready to be deployed in any circumstance that requires gas tightness testing and purging.
If you have a commercial pipework system in the Essex area, you may require tightness testing and purging services if you plan to modify or install any new systems or in emergency cases, if you can smell gas or it has been detected.
A full list is included below to show the scenarios that may leave you wondering about a tightness test.
- Have you recently extended a pipe system or do you plan to?
- Have you temporarily turned the system off for a long period of time?
- Have you replaced or altered an existing part of the pipework?
- Have you, or do you plan to, install a brand new system (i.e. commissioning)?
- Do you suspect there could be air in the system?
- Do you want to take the system out entirely (i.e. decommissioning)?
What services do we provide and when might you need them:
Commissioning & Decommissioning
Installing a new system and permanently shutting off any system is not as simple as plugging in a microwave or new kettle!
You must have the correct planning and safety precautions in place, with Gas Safe experts onsite to deliver everything to the highest standard possible and keep everyone safe.
When it comes to gas, you have to be sure. PHS can provide you with that confidence.
Strength Testing in New Installations
Always carry out a strength test on new industrial and commercial gas pipework installations.
This includes any extensions you’ve had made to your existing commercial gas pipework installation.
Gas Tightness Test in Essex
Simply put, a gas tightness test ensures that your gas pipes aren’t leaking. If they are, they could present a serious hazard to you, your employees, your assets and even your neighbours!
In line with The Gas Safety Regulations 1998, you should arrange a tightness test annually to ensure you’re maintaining safe working conditions.
We include this in planned, preventative maintenance packages.
If you are outside the remit of your annual service and you smell gas or gas has been detected, you should call a Gas Safe Engineer immediately.
Issuing Gas Tightness Certificate of Compliance
If you require one, we can provide one – but we will need to do some checks first! We will have a few suggestions for you if you’re not quite there yet.
