If your business uses an Air Receiver to store compressed air, then you have a legal responsibility to ensure that Receiver complies with the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR). Receivers with capacities as low as 50 litres are covered by PSSR, due to the pressure at which the air is stored. This means that they are subject to compulsory, regular air receiver inspections.
Why PSSR is important
When stored in a tank, compressed air is kept at a high pressure and so any faults with that tank pose a significant safety risk to the end users of the air system, as well as to others working near the compressor. These risks can be mitigated by having the Air Receiver inspected and certified by a Competent Examiner.
Trust the experts in compressed air
Precision Pneumatics has a team of PSSR Competent Examiners who have been trained by the British Compressed Air Society to inspect and certify compressed air systems. This can be carried out at the same time as preventative maintenance on other equipment, such as compressors, or scheduled as a standalone visit.
