The Pressure Systems Safety Regulation 2000 legislation requires all pressurised vessels to be regularly inspected and tested. You can read the details here.
Your traditional espresso machine has a hot water boiler pressurised by steam. This boiler therefore has to be inspected and pressure tested annually by an independent competent engineer.
Think of it as the MOT for your machine. Espressotechno carries out boiler pressure testing and certification.
Some commercial insurance companies insist that their own insurance inspectors attend this event to carry out the Scheme of Examination and issue the Certificate. However, the inspector will not undertake any physical work (mechanical or electrical) necessary to access various parts of your machine. We are therefore happy to attend and “hold the inspector's hand”. Contact us for a chat about this process and prices, etc.
These are the important elements to remember about our boiler pressure testing and certification service:
