• Annual maintenance of tube heaters

The annual maintenance of tube heaters

The Gas Safety Industry and Use Regulations (GSIUR) emphasises the need for businesses to ensure the safety of systems on their premises. It states that: "It shall be the duty of every employer or self-employed person to ensure that any gas appliance, installation pipework or flue installed at any place of work under his control is maintained in a safe condition so as to prevent risk of injury to any person."

Tube heaters can be configured into decentralised infrared heating systems, with combustion of the gas-air mixture taking place within a long steel tube. This tube heats up to approximately 580 °C and subsequently emits the infrared radiation.

Gas Safe accreditation

These are highly sophisticated gas heating appliances for industrial and commercial premises. This means that they must only be serviced and maintained by highly qualified Gas Safe Registered engineers, such as those directly employed by Schwank. Our company never uses third party contractors to carry out servicing and maintenance assignments.

The annual maintenance of tube heaters and other HVAC appliances is not only important for safety reasons. It will also ensure that the system provides optimum performance and energy efficiency. This has benefits for both cutting the operating costs of a building and reducing its carbon footprint.
