Written Schemes

It is a legal requirement for every pressure system to have a written scheme before using for the very first time. The scheme, which we can provide for you, will detail the frequency of examination required. We can inspect all your equipment thoroughly including pressure vessels using a calibrated ultra-sonic thickness meter, and a fiberscope for areas with restricted internal vision. We also use a calibrated pressure tester to check the accuracy of gauges and the lift pressure of safety relief valves.

The results of all these inspections are provided in writing for you, along with the date of our next visit. You can rest assured all the equipment will be thoroughly checked to ensure you comply with PSSR.

Due to our engineers holding the professional status of either I. Eng or C. Eng we are able to draw up written schemes for pressure systems.

Personable, Professional, Efficient & Friendly

I have had the pleasure of working alongside Hutcheon Examination Services for over a year now and I cannot fault their high end quality of work and professional attitude all mixed in with the personal time business approach to customer satisfaction. I have regular dealings with both Suzanne and Claire and my queries are always dealt with swiftly and efficiently. I know that I can rely on the admin team to ensure that the inspections are carried out within a timely manner and that we maintain compliance of our stock. I have also dealt with Peter and Lynne and every time an issue needs resolving, they have not disappointed. The feedback we have received from our residents is that the engineers are both friendly and informative about what they are doing. I would not hesitate in recommending HESL to any organisation. Thanks Team!
