Commercial Gas Tightness Testing
Purge and De-Commission
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.
A smell of gas or presence of gas detected would fail the test and would be required to be traced and repaired which G-Tap can also attend to.
We recommend that all gas pipework be tested on an annual basis. This can be carried out at all the same time as the annual gas appliance service visit.
