Understanding Gas Booster Regulations

Understanding Gas Booster Regulations

Gas boosters play a critical role in various industrial and commercial settings, ensuring the efficient delivery of gas to meet demand.

However, understanding and ensuring compliance with regulations is essential to maintain safety and performance standards. In this blog post, we'll delve into the gas booster regulations outlined in British standard BS8487:2007 and explore how Hoval Aftersales can help ensure stress-free compliance.

The essential gas booster regulations you need to know:

  • Drive Belt Replacement: According to BS8487:2007, drive belts in gas boosters must be replaced annually to ensure optimal performance and prevent potential breakdowns.
  • Flexible Connector Replacement: Flexible connectors must be replaced every 5 years to mitigate the risk of leaks and ensure the integrity of the gas delivery system.
  • Bearing Assembly Replacement: Bearing assemblies must be replaced every 5 years, regardless of their perceived condition, to maintain reliability and prevent failures.
  • Maintenance of Belts and Pulleys: Belts and pulleys should be kept free from grease and dirt to prevent slippage and ensure smooth operation.

Replacement belts can be obtained by quoting the reference number affixed to the belt guard of every booster, and the motor mounting arrangement in all booster models ensures correct belt tension and requires no maintenance.
