Gas leak testing
Our commercial leak detections specialists utilise innovative sensory equipment to test for the possibility and presence of a gas leak. As part of the Gas Safe regulations, gas meters, pipework (with or without connected appliances), and whether there is a smell of gas all have different yet regulated and specific requirements. Our certified and competent engineers are able to identify and commission the remedial works required for any commercial system as per the Gas Safe regulations.
Pressure testing in commercial systems is a vital requirement prior to the live introduction of gas and or water to a system.
In a wet heating system, a gas appliance is generally used to heat water, which in turn supplies radiant heat to a building. The most commonly used pipework for a wet heating system is plastic or copper. Our engineers are experienced in pressure testing the pipework of a system to ensure the heating system pipework is leak-free, this saves time and business disruption as well as the potential for future costs such leaks be present. The strength test also verifies that the size and material of pipework used is sufficient and durable to withstand the varying pressures of a wet heating system.
For commercial gas pipework, there are specific regulations in place, which stipulate the material, internal diameter size and total length of pipework and fittings to accommodate for the required gas demand. Gas pipework needs to be rigid and therefore the most common material for gas piping in a commercial environment tends to be steel. In some instances, copper piping is also used. Our engineers are competent to recognise the piping requirements of a heating/catering system to ensure that the finished product adheres to the strict guidelines laid out by Gas Safe Register and Appliance Manufacturers. Failure to adhere to these regulations is against the Gas Safe rulings and can be highly dangerous and even fatal.
