High-pressure gas cylinders typically degrade from the inside as well as outside. However, cylinders that cannot be removed or easily reached, have historically undergone safety tests far less rigorous than those for transportable tubes.
This has resulted in significant safety, cost & downtime issues for insurers and end-users, because of the susceptibility of these cylinders to damage and erosion.
Now, the British Standards Institution (BSI) - with input from Chesterfield Special Cylinders - has developed BS 8562, the new standard for the inspection and testing of hard to reach/impossible to remove, gas tubes. This forms the core of Chesterfield Special Cylinders’ Integrity Management service.
Chesterfield Special Cylinders is the only company capable of delivering this strict new testing regime worldwide, with bespoke facilities and equipment, operating globally.
