Pressure Vessel and Pressure System Inspections

Welcome to the SSD Air section of the SSD group.

What is Pressure Vessel Testing?

The Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR) require pressure systems to be inspected in accordance with a Written Scheme of Examination.

These regulations apply to all owners and users of pressure systems containing a relevant fluid, which typically include steam, gases under pressure and any fluid kept artificially under pressure and which becomes a gas when released to the atmosphere.

There is a legal requirement for a complete examination of pressure vessels and receivers that contain steam, compressed air and refrigerants. Any system containing compressed gas over 250 bar/litres capacity requires a PSSR inspection.

How do I know if I need a Pressure Vessel Inspection?

To work out whether an inspection is need, multiply the vessel operating pressure (in bar units) by the vessel capacity.  If the total bar/litres capacity is above the 250 bar/litre threshold you will need to have a Pressure Vessel Inspection with a written scheme of examination.

If you are an owner of refrigeration plant containing pressure vessels with a compressor power of over 25 kilowatts, you will also require a written scheme of examination and inspection.

SSD Air (part of the SSD Group) can provide full compliance, complete a full thorough examination along with a written scheme of examination.
