Calorifier Inspections

A calorifier is a type of water heater that uses a heat exchanger to transfer heat from a hot water source, such as a boiler, to the water being heated. The internal inspection of calorifiers is an important step in ensuring the safe and efficient operation of these systems.

Regular internal inspections of calorifiers are important for a variety of reasons, including:

1. Identifying and addressing potential problems early on: Internal inspections can help to identify issues such as corrosion, scaling, and leaks, which can be addressed before they become serious problems.

2. Ensuring compliance with legal regulations: Many countries, including the UK, have laws and regulations in place that require regular internal inspections of calorifiers to ensure compliance with safety standards.

3. Maintaining the efficiency of the system: Regular internal inspections can help to ensure that the calorifier is operating at peak efficiency, which can save energy and reduce operating costs.

Relevant British Standards: BS EN 12897:2000 Specification for calorifiers BS 853-2:1989 Specification for copper and copper alloy tubes for water, gas, and sanitation
