British Standards and Gas Booster Compliance

Maintenance to British Standards BS8487:2007

Protect your investment. Secomak Gas Boosters are tough and dependable. Maintaining it regularly will ensure that your booster remains reliable for years.

Safety is a critical concern when working with gas, so British Standard 8487:2007 suggests which components must be replaced at regular intervals.   
 


Once a Year

Replace Drive Belts annually with our approved flat belt. This flat design allows the belt to slip off harmlessly should there be any rotation issues.


Replace Every Five Years

Replace Gas Bearing Assemblies with the approved yellow design every five years. Secomak Bearing Assemblies are sealed for life cartridges complete with Impellor, designed to minimise dust and dirt ingress, minimising heat and friction and simplifying bearing assembly installation.  

Replace Flexible Connectors every five years irrespective of how they appear to be, ensuring a tight seal, whilst minimising vibration and metal fatigue.
 

Am I complying with British Standards? 

To find out if your Gas Booster is compliant with British Standards, call us with your Secomak Gas Booster serial number. We'll access our manufacturing records and advise you the year of manufacture and the last time the bearing assembly was changed. We keep a wide variety of spare parts in stock to minimise downtime and keep our Gas Boosters running.
