Overall strength analyses and reading 


To discard and remove potentially combustible gases inside commercial pipe works, it is necessary that purging is carried out. This ensures that the pipe works will not be responsible for any system failures or gas outburst and explosion. 
Thorough calculation and evaluation for the purging test will be done by our gas safe engineers. 
Procedures for testing, however, may differ depending on pipe type, usage, and/or composition. For more detailed methodologies and procedures, get in touch with Ian Redfern Gas Services today.
