CAPS TEAM IS AVAILABLE TO ASSIST YOU WITH YOUR INQUIRY.GET IN TOUCH
Inspection and maintenance of pressure vessels, specifically air receivers, can be challenging for businesses. This is where CAPS can help manage your inspection routine, giving you piece of mind.
Pressure vessels can fail and explode, potentially causing injury and death. As there are substantial risks associated with failing to work safely with your air receiver, there is a legislative framework in every state of Australia that sets minimum requirements for controlling risk, and for consultation.
In accordance with mine sites across Australia, when checking your pressure vessel, the pressure relief valve has to be overhauled and tested to keep it in a safe condition. CAPS can test any and all pressure relief valves – no matter the size or pressure.
The ultrasonic thickness measurements are compared against that of the MDR (Manufacturer’s Data Report).
Once an inspection is complete, our technician will sign off his report that concludes the receiver is safe to use. This covers you from any liability in the unlikely event something goes wrong.
Following the inspection, you are provided with an in-depth report that details the specifications of your pressure vessel, any components that were replaced, as well as detailed comments confirming its compliance. For extra peace of mind, our team will contact you when your next interval arrives & book a time that suits you.
Not having your receiver tested and inspected within adequate intervals could lead to violations of occupational health and safety regulations, which also means you may not be covered by your insurer should something go wrong.
On install, air receivers must be signed off as safe to use and registered with Work Safe. AS3788 states that inspections must be carried out regularly. Most people choose to carry out their receiver inspections every 2 years (both internal and external) as it’s more cost-effective. Once registered, they do not need to be re-registered unless they are moved.
If moved, your vessel must be registered again to comply with AS3788 standard and State OH&S legislations, which states that the employer has to provide a safe working environment.
CAPS will organise an accredited vessel inspector to perform a complete range of pressure vessel activities on your site to ensure that you comply with the different Australian state’s legislation.
