Gas Purging

F.N. Rice (Pirbright) Ltd have extensive experience in the commissioning and decommissioning of commercial gas pipework and the associated pipework purging services required. We have an enviable record of completed commercial gas projects large and small, and we can carry out comprehensive gas testing and purging of commercial gas pipework throughout the London and the south East. We have Gas Engineers trained to deal with all aspects of commercial gas pipework purging whether on new build, refurbishment or decommissioning.

In IGE/UP/1 and IGE/UP/1A (Strength Testing, Tightness Testing and Direct Purging of Industrial and Commercial Gas Installations), The Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM) has laid out clear principles which must be observed whenever a gas supply is to be commissioned or decommissioned, whether a new or an existing installation is involved.  The person making the supply available must ensure that all air and gas, other than the gas to be supplied, is purged from the installation.

We are able to bring to bear various techniques for purging commercial gas pipework to suit the circumstances of each project, including:

  • Compressed air purge (where appropriate)
  • Low pressure air fan purge units
  • Nitrogen pulse purging
  • Nitrogen slug purging

For all projects, a full assessment of the risks involved will be conducted, showing clearly the safety considerations to be taken into account during the process.  A comprehensive operating procedure will be documented, requisite liaison with external bodies and local emergency services will be carried out, and on handover, certification will be provided following completion detailing the test and purge results.
