Upon completion we will provide you with certification to confirm an effective gas purge/tightness test/commission/decommission has been carried out and that your system is safe.
Our commercial gas engineers are fully conversant with The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998, enabling them to give the advice on ensuring your installation is gas safe compliant.
Whenever gas pipework is repaired, extended or newly installed, a purge must be conducted.
We hold multiple purge stacks consisting of gas metres and flame arrestors. We also have a Gascoseeker (a commercial analyser) for sampling the gas within the pipework.
All our equipment is fully calibrated to ensure accurate readings are produced.
A full survey will be provided prior to the commencement of the gas purging, with a full risk assessment and method process plan being conducted to ensure the purging is undertaken to the highest safety standards.
Tightness testing is carried out to ensure that your gas pipework is safe for use. In a new gas pipework installation the test is to verify that pipework is gas tight.
On existing gas pipework installations, the test is to confirm that the pipework is gas tight.
A smell of gas or presence of gas detected would fail the test and would be required to be traced and repaired which ABC can also attend to.
We recommend that all gas pipework be tested on an annual basis. This can be carried out at the same time as the annual gas appliance service visit.
