INTEGRITY TESTING

As per SANS 14520 it is a requirement to test all gas protected areas to ensure the gas flooding concentration is achieved and maintained. The test is carried out using the door fan test method, where the room is pressurized and the leakage of air calculated to determine the holding time. The concentration of gas has to be maintained for a minimum of 10 minutes to the height of the risk to ensure sufficient extinguishing. We are able to provide this service using our own equipment and advise on hole sealing where necessary using Micon intumescent fire retardant coatings.
