Pressure vessel testing is required to minimise the risks when working with systems or equipment which contain a liquid or gas under pressure. If pressure equipment fails in use, it can seriously injure or kill people nearby and cause serious damage to property.
All new and existing compressed air installations must conform to both the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Regulations and Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR 2000).
All pressure systems larger than 250 bar/litres must have a “written scheme of examination” and a statutory inspection in accordance with the written scheme.
A “Written Scheme of Examination” is a list that details the inspection periods, safety devices and components associated with the system’s pressure vessels.
Employers have a further duty to consult any safety or employee representatives on health and safety matters. Where none are appointed, employers should consult the workforce direct.
We can carryout Air Receiver Tests and Written Schemes on all compressors.
