Our Installation Process
- Beginning with blueprints and system specs, our installers will review all documentation for code compliance, efficiency, and patient life safety concerns. If you do not have plans, we can engineer plans for you.
- Once the engineering and take-off process is completed we begin sourcing your equipment, working with 12 different manufacturers to bring you the best wholesale pricing and lead times available.
- Once the pricing and delivery of equipment has been established and approved, our superintendent will develop a site plan that lays out timelines and benchmarks for completion. Using this site plan we can work with you on scheduling details, such as start dates, completion dates, and shut downs.
Note: All medical gas installations will need to be verified by a third party medical gas verifier. In some cases we can arrange for this, but it will ultimately be the responsibility of the facility director to arrange the verification.
Note: Facility directors will be responsible for arranging the delivery of NF Nitrogen. Without this NF Nitrous Installers cannot properly install medical gas piping.
Medical Gas Installers
A Medical Gas Installer is an industry professional who has been trained and certified in installing medical gas piping systems. All Medical Gas Installers are required to carry a valid ASSE 6010 certification, or a license from a state licensing board the certifies installers for medical gas. Installers should spend several years working with experienced teams and supervisors before working medical gas systems alone. Every installer should be up to date on the latest NFPA 99 medical gas installation standards. If you’re looking to hire an installer for a project, make sure they carry valid credentials and have sufficient experience. If the installer you hired does not carry the proper credentials for medical gas, your new system could fail inspection and require a complete tear down.
Medical Gas Plumbing
Medical Gas Plumbing refers to a specialty grade copper used to ‘plumb’ a medical gas system. Medical gas plumbers and installers are the same thing and carry an ASSE 6010 certification. Plumbing medical gas systems is similar to other types of plumbing and requires running pipe through walls, ceilings, and floors from a source point to a utility.
Medical Gas Piping
Medical Gas Piping is a special type of copper piping used to deliver medical grade gases from a utility room to a patient room in a medical facility. The two approved types of medical grade piping are Type K and Type L copper pipe.
Type K copper has a thicker/heavier wall than Type L, but both meet NFPA 99 standards for positive pressure medical gas installations. Medical gas piping should come cleaned and capped from the manufacturer and be kept off of the floor and in a clean environment until it is ready to be installed.

NFPA 99 Medical Gas Installation
NFPA 99 Medical gas installations refer to the installation of piped medical gases (oxygen, medical air, N2O, etc.) using medical grade copper piping and medical equipment such as oil-less air compressors, medical alarm panels, and medical gas outlets. All of these types of equipment and piping make up the Medical Gas Pipeline System (MGPS).
How to Install Med Gas Systems
Medical gas pipeline systems cannot be installed by just anyone, the industry is highly regulated and systems should only be installed by licensed ASSE 6010 Medical Gas Installers. Due to the critical life-safety nature of these systems, safety should always be your first and foremost priority, and it begins with hiring the right medical gas installation company to perform the installation
