Air Compressor Testing & Compliance in Chesterfield

Compliance testing of your Chesterfield air compressor system? We answer your questions.

We can guide you through the legislation and help you to be compliant

Q. Does my air compressor system need testing?
Yes. The Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 require the compressed air equipment used by your Chesterfield business to have a written scheme of examination. That scheme should then be used to test your air compressor.


Q. Do we need to employ a third party to comply with legislation?
No. Any “competent person” within your organisation can do it.


Q. So why should we ask Algar Air to test our compressed air system?
Well, firstly because not every company has a suitably “competent person” (eg a chartered engineer) to check their air compressor equipment.


And even if you do, compliance testing of your Chesterfield compressed air equipment is far more comprehensive with Algar Air. We’ll check:

  •  Air Receivers
  •  Air Tanks (not Diving Equipment)
  •  Air Vessels
  •  Safety Valves
  •  Pipework


We’ll also look beyond the remit of the legislation to ensure that your compressed air system actively supports your business by:

  •  Protecting efficiency to minimise energy costs
  •  Identifying and correcting leaks so you maintain correct pressure with less stress on the compressor motor
  •  Reducing system wear that can increase repair costs and downtime


So for air compressor compliance testing in Chesterfield that looks at far more than compliance, talk to Algar Air on 0114 243 2347 or use our contact form below for a quotation.
