PSSR - Written Schemes Of Examination

PSSR

Written schemes of examination

Under the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR 2000), users and owners of pressure systems are required to demonstrate that they know the safe operating limits (principally pressure and temperature) of their systems and that they are safe under those conditions.

Compressed Air Quality Testing

Compressed air quality testing

Finding leaks in your system

ISO 8573-1:2010 specifies purity classes of compressed air with respect to particles, water and oil independent of the location in the compressed air system at which the air is specified or measured.

Air compressor finance

Make more savings

Take advantage of the government’s super deduction capital allowance for your next compressed air, vacuum and downstream equipment.

Air compressors

Correct air compressor purchase

If compressed air is key to your production process, then selecting the right compressor is critical so that you can produce high quality air effectively at the lowest cost. Did you know that energy costs account for around 80% of the total lifecycle cost of your compressor? Therefore, investing in an energy efficient system should be a priority.

Recently had my air compressor serviced by air mech and from start to finish was very happy with the service. Was given a quote promptly, kept up to date with lead times and booked in very quickly by Charlotte. Jim who came out to do the service was great aswell, had an initial telephone conversation to run through some technical queries I had and was very friendly and punctual when carrying out the service. Would highly recommend.

The help you need to succeed

Where are you based and where do you cover?

AirMech Head Office is based in Nuneaton, Warwickshire but we cover the whole of the UK. We are well served by central connections having excellent road links with good access to the A5, M6, M42 and M69 motorways.

Are you experts in the industry?

Managing compressed air is a specialist service, with regulations and accreditations gained through training courses to fully meet manufacturers requirements. All AirMech engineers are manufacturer-trained and we have over 125+ years combined industry experience.

Do you have appropriate insurances in place?

Like most well regarded companies AirMech have Employers, Public, Professional and Professional Indemnity insurance in place.

Do you provide flexible payment options?

When making a big purchase, we like to give you options to assist with payment. AirMech partners with a well-known finance broker and we are happy to discuss varying payment terms on new equipment if required.

Do you provide warranty?

Compressor manufacturers support distributors with warranties from 2-10 years on main components provided they are serviced by AirMech as per the manufacturer's recommended schedule.

Do you carry out maintenance/servicing?

AirMech offers a full range of air compressor and air treatment servicing/repair options to meet your needs. We cover:


Compressors
Dryers
Filters
Condensate Systems

 

What is a Written Scheme of Examination (WSE)?

Under the Pressure System Safety Regulations (PSSR) 2000, the owner of a pressure system should have a Written Scheme of Examination (WSE). AirMech can assist with the creation of a WSE, which lists all of the critical components of the pressure system which require examination by a competent person.


What is the difference between a screw, vane and piston compressor?


Reciprocating compressors use pistons to compress air within cylinders, which is then sent to the pressurised receiving tank for use. Rotary compressors, on the other hand, use rotors, and rotary vane compressors use a single rotor with longitudinal slots and vanes, which slide in and out of the rotor to form compression pockets. AirMech is fully conversant with all types of compressor and can help you to select the best type for your application.

What is condensate and how do I legally dispose of it?

Condensate is a chemically aggressive fluid which consists of mostly water but also some oil and dirt. It is an unavoidable by-product of air compression, and legislation regarding disposal needs observing carefully to avoid the substantial fines associated with non-compliance.


The Water Resources Act (1991) states that it is an offence to knowingly pollute controlled waters by the disposal of poisonous, noxious or polluting matter. Compressor condensate comes under this description and can result in the polluter being liable for fines of up to £20,000 or in some cases imprisonment. This legislation is levelled towards the responsible person, and sanctions are taken against the individual, not the Company.
There is other relevant legislation covering the correct disposal of condensate to include ‘The Environmental Protection Regulations 1991’ and ‘The Water Industry Act 1991’. Additionally, the H&S Commission Statutory Instrument 1989, No 2169 covering Pressure Systems and Transportable Gas Containers, makes it clear that from 1994 all new installations should have condensate drainage points feeding into an oil-water separator prior to final discharge. Furthermore, the British Compressed Air Society states categorically that ‘Under no circumstances should it be permitted to discharge untreated compressed air condensate to public surface water, sewers, or to ground’ (CAC 9407).


As highlighted, the importance of implementing a proper procedure for the removal of compressor condensate is imperative if you want to avoid punishment.


AirMech suggests the following pro-active measures to ensure compliance:


• Install a timed/zero-loss drain on your air receiver – this allows condensate to be automatically drained from your air receiver. Zero-loss drains ensure that no compressed air is lost in the process, saving energy by not having to re-compress air lost when manually draining condensate.

• Install an oil-water separator – with low maintenance costs, this will ensure that condensate is treated correctly. Following treatment, the condensate is 99% water of which you can dispose of legally down the foul sewer drain.


Proper disposal of waste oil – following above treatment of condensate, this will ensure that any waste oil is disposed of correctly with an authorised waste disposal company who is registered as a ‘hazardous waste producer’ or ‘licensed waste carrier’.
If the above measures are implemented, then any visits from the Health and Safety Executive should run smoothly.
