Gas Tightness Testing & Purging in Kent
If you are commercial property owner in Kent, you may require our highly skilled, PHS Gas Safe engineers to perform tightness testing and purging on your gas pipework installations.
The experts on our team know how to go about this extremely precise, time consuming and complex service so that you don’t have to worry about it – helping you keep safe and efficient and restoring your peace of mind.
We can provide assistance and services in the following areas:
- Planning of new systems
- Purging (direct and indirect)
- Strength tests
- Tightness tests
- Certifications of compliance
You should get in contact if:
- You turned the system off for a long period of time and want to turn it back on
- You replaced or altered an existing part of the pipework
- You plan to / have installed a brand new system (i.e. commissioning)
- You suspect there is air in the system
- You want to decommission a system
Why is it Important to Have a Gas Safe Engineer Involved?
For starters, you have an obligation to be Gas Safe compliant, following the Gas Safe Regulations 1998.
On top of staying on the right side of the law, you are also showing you prioritise the lives of those around your commercial property in Kent.
Putting their lives needlessly at risk over some cheap/unqualified gas work, is reckless as well as illegal.
What is Strength Testing?
To give you confidence, you want to strength test any new parts of an existing installation as well as brand new installations in their entirety.
What is Gas Tightness Testing?
If you have PPM (Planned Preventative Maintenance) packages or your assets are seen annually as part of a service, you should have regular visits from a Gas Safe Engineer who will do a tightness test and will be trained to recognise anything out of the ordinary.
If you smell gas or have any worries outside of your annual regime, call an engineer immediately.
If, as per the list above, you’ve done something new or modified pipework in anyway, you should redo these tests.
Issuing Certificate of Compliance
If you require a certificate of gas safe compliance, we can send an engineer to your property in Kent to check this for you.
If for any reason we have any cause for concern, we can provide a few tips or even help you get it up to scratch there and then on the day.
Once we’re happy, we can issue this certificate for you from one of our Gas Safe Engineers.
