COURSES Scuba Diving Cylinder O2 Cleaning, Hydrostatic Testing Wiltshire
Cylinder Testing and Servicing Swindon

Servicing - Cylinder Testing

Every cylinder that is used for diving (or compressed gases) should be tested and inspected by law.  A hydrostatic test needs to be taken every 5 years or if visual inspection is out of date by 30 days.  A visual test needs to be undertaken every 2½ years.

 

If the cylinder is to be used for nitrogen/enriched air, the cylinder should be O2 cleaned, which needs to be undertaken every 15 months.  Note IDEST T014 January 2020.

Please note:

For cylinder testing a non-refundable £25.00 deposit is required. If a cylinder fails the test it will be destroyed for safety reasons.

 

Cylinders used for surface use ie Airguns and Paintball Cylinders need to be tested every 5 years (dependant on valve).

 

Our policy is that a cylinder with a diving valve in must be tested as a diving cylinder as it could always be used in seawater for the purpose of SCUBA, unless fitted with a surface use valve.

 

Cylinder inspection and testing is carried out in accordance with:

EN1968 or EN5430 Part 2, as applicable and ASSET CP11 (steel cylinders)

BS EN 1802 (aluminium cylinders)

and BS EN ISO 11623 (composite cylinders)

 

We will happily look to price match any like for like written quote on all of our servicing.
