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. Furthermore, 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.
