High Temperature Safety Surveys for Overheat Protection

Reducing the risk of scalding from overheated hot water

Valveforce undertake a full survey of the existing high limit protection devices that are installed within your plant rooms.

Using the very latest test equipment we are able to independently test all of the leading manufacture’s high limit protection valves and thermostats and prove they are tripping at the critical temperature set point.

Valveforce would recommend an annual survey to be carried out by our skilled specialist team. This will ensure all equipment is working and proven to the recommended set point preventing the potential for dangerous situations occurring.

Introducing our safety survey into your planned maintenance programme gives you the peace of mind that you are protecting employees and visitors to the hospital against the potential hazards of scalding, whilst working towards your obligations as set out in HSE information sheet No 6.

Our High Temperature Safety Survey is part of a full range of products and services put together specifically to support the Hospitals and the NHS.

Implementing our safety survey into your planned maintenance programme gives you the peace of mind that you are protecting employees and visitors to the hospital against the potential hazards of scalding.
