Medical gas verification is an important part to finalizing your medical gas installation and ensuring patient life safety. This process helps determine if the medical gas system has been installed to NFPA 99 code standards and whether or not it is safe to use. Without a system verification on file, the med gas system cannot be used.
Medical Gas System Verification
As per the NFPA 99 requirements, verifications must be done by a company or individual other than the contractor hired to do the installation. Additionally, a verification will also need to be done whenever there is a repair and/or cut-in to the downstream pipeline to ensure the system is safe and ready for patient use.
Below are some of the various tests that will be conducted by the medical gas verifier:
- Standing Pressure Test
- Cross-Connection Test
- Alarms Test
- Piping Purge Test
- Piping Particulates Test
