All new and existing compressed air installations must conform to both the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Regulations and Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR 2000). All pressure systems larger than 250 bar litres, must have a "written scheme of examination" and a statutory inspection in accordance with the written scheme.
A "Written Scheme of Examination" is a list that details the inspection periods, safety devices and components associated with the system's pressure vessels. The inspections are normally carried out by the site's insurer. In some cases a schematic drawing of the whole air network is required, from generation to end-users with all components detailed. Although this is not a statutory requirements, it is good practice to have a drawing of the whole system.
Maziak are qualified to provide all the services required by the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations:
Part of a site's 'duty of care' is to have the pressure system maintained by a competent body, such as Maziak, and to keep records of this activity for inspection if required. This mostly means the air compressor plant itself, but in some cases the distribution system and components too. Responsibility lies with the owner/user not with the installer/supplier.
