All high pressure gas cylinders require statutory testing to ensure they are still safe to use and recharge. A variety of European standards decide how and when they should be tested, the common ones being BSEN 1968 (steel), BSEN 1802 (aluminium) or BSEN 11623 (composite).
Airservices(UK) test all types of cylinders as well as servicing the valves (all part of the service).
More importantly we are certified to the higher level being recognised as an appointed Inspection Body by U.K.A.S. (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) to ISO/IEC 17020.
Moreover we offer our testing service in a manner unique in the UK. We can offer either on or off site. Our mobile workshops, vans and truck can test on your premises irrespective of cylinder size. The advantages are obvious. Cylinder turn around time is hours instead of days or even weeks. We will; strip your storage cylinders out, test them, re-fit them, re-charge and leak test. Saving you labour time and carriage costs!
