Our engineers can test gas appliance components in isolation, or as part of the appliance - pipes & fittings, valves, burners, manifolds, fans, flue terminals and switches.
Where no standard exists, we can carry out a risk assessment or create a meaningful performance assessment method for your gas appliance.
We are also able to help you with approvals for North America. However, we always stress that this can be a complicated and costly set of approvals.
Gas appliances are designed to operate with gas of a specific composition. The composition varies between countries. This 'Wobbe card' shows the composition range for European countries. And here is our popular Gas Comparison card which contains useful information about hydrogen, methane, town gas and LPG.
As well as gas appliance testing, we provide audit and product surveillance services, including assistance with establishing quality management procedures. Kiwa Gastec also operates in the fields of Hydrogen, Biomass and other energy technologies.
