Gas Detection Calibration, Service and Maintenance by IGD
Gas detection systems need to be serviced, calibrated and maintain, in a similar manner to your fire systems. The calibration and maintenance period will be a dependant on the environment, in which the detector is required to operate. Typically the maintenance/calibration period is 6-12 month, your IGD engineer will advise any required changes to the calibration period, to ensure compliance. Furthermore there is legislation behind getting your gas detection systems calibrated to manufacturer recommendations, and by competently trained engineers. The legislation can be found below:
- BS EN 60079-29-2:2015
- Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER)
- BS EN 60079-17-2014
IGD can help with service and maintenance of our advanced intelligent systems. We provide traceable calibration, with full system calibration data and service reports. These detail exactly what happened during your service visit and also the reports come straight from our gas detection control panels, detailing alarm levels and which traceable calibration gas was used. We can also service many other gas detection systems and portables, as we have third party trained engineers.
Types of IGD Gas Detection Training:
We do offer an Engineers Training Scheme. You can apply to become an IGD trained engineer, by completing the 3 Continuous Professional Development (CPD) approved courses online and a days practical training here at IGD. Due to our Training Scheme, we do have 3rd party engineers who have been trained to install and service our systems. Engineers must be able to demonstrate competency, as these are key HSE and ISO requirements. An approved, trained IGD engineer will be able to demonstrate certification, obtained from our Online CPD Training Academy, and also ask IGD to verify that the engineer is certified to service IGD equipment. This is to comply with the PUWER Act.
End User Training – Owner Operator Training
We also provide training for end users. This helps end user understand the systems they have, understand gas detection and legislation. We also help to develop our clients Safe Operating Procedures in case of alarms, and understand what a gas detection alarm will be like.
