Our in-house technician Michael Turner has attended the A.S.S.E.T cylinder testing technicians course. Changes in UK and European legislation together with the requirement for ‘competent and approved’ persons to carry out cylinder testing has created the need for a higher standard of training and certification of those who carry out this work.

The A.S.S.E.T. approved 4 day cylinder testing technicians course is a comprehensive training course covering the theory and practice of cylinder testing which guarantees that your cylinders are only given the best treatment.

When is your cylinder due for test?

Diving cylinders require testing every 2.5 years (visual every 2.5 years and a hydrostatic every 5 years)

A cylinder not used for diving only requires a hydrostatic test every 5 years

Cylinders that require O2 cleaning have to be re-cleaned every 15 months.
