The safety inspection consists of: - Leak test under pressure. - Flow accuracy check. - Operating pressure check. - Affixing of a new test sticker.
A general overhaul must be carried out after no more than six years after the last safety inspection or twelve years after the product has been brought into circulation, and consists of: - Leak test under pressure. - Flow accuracy check. - Operating pressure check. - Replacement of diaphragm valve/piston. - Safety valve pressure test. - Affixing of a new test sticker.
