The commercial engineers at PHS can provide London addresses with qualified, safe gas testing and purging on commercial gas pipework.
Our experts are Gas Safe compliant, highly trained and familiar with all shapes and sizes of industry standard gas systems to give you the full peace of mind you need while taking part in this lengthy and complex process.
PHS Engineers can provide a variety of services to suit your needs requiring natural gas pipework installations and systems.
Direct & Indirect Gas Purging
Direct or indirect purges are air to gas or gas to air. They require industrial and commercial gas experts to plan extensively, with close supervision throughout.
Strength Testing in New Installations
It is highly recommended that a strength test is carried out on all 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 for Domestic & Commercial Properties
To make sure that your commercial gas pipes are gas tight and therefore safe to use and not presenting a risk to your local surroundings, a tightness test should be carried out.
In line with The Gas Safety Regulations 1998, you should arrange a tightness test annually to ensure you’re maintaining safe working conditions.
Most services do this automatically.
The presence of gas in this sense would immediately fail a tightness test.
Other requirements for tightness testing could be if you have:
- Extended a pipe system
- Temporarily turned the system off for a long period of time
- Replaced or altered an existing pipe system
- Installed a brand new system (i.e. commissioning)
- If you suspect there to be air in the system
- You want to take the system out entirely (i.e. decommissioning)
