From steam boilers and steam systems through compressed air systems to pressurised heating systems and other pressurised systems.
The Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR) call for a Written Scheme of Examination to be drawn up for the majority of pressure systems (some exemptions apply), including compressed air and steam systems, and for thorough examinations to be carried out accordingly. Our engineers will draw up the written schemes for you (schemes for simple systems are provided free of charge) and examine the plant accordingly. To minimise disruption, we aim to fit in with maintenance/shut down periods keeping downtime to a minimum while ensuring you comply with all current legislation.
Furthermore, the Thurra team will advise on exactly what needs to be inspected and when and will keep track of everything to ensure you are reminded when inspections are due.
The Thurra team is a good source of reference and guidance on these requirements; more detailed information is available in the HSE guide to the safe operation and maintenance of pressure systems: www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg261.pdf
Pressure systems that normally need to be inspected include:
- Compressed air systems (fixed and portable)
- Steam boilers and steam heating systems
- Steam autoclaves, vessels, retorts, drying cylinders etc.
- Heat exchangers and refrigeration plant
