Everything you Need:

Medical gas installation is the process of designing, installing, and testing a medical gas system in a healthcare facility. Medical gases, such as oxygen, nitrous oxide, and medical air, are critical to patient care and are used in a variety of medical procedures.

The installation process typically begins with a site survey to determine the requirements of the medical gas system, including the types and quantities of gases needed, the location of gas outlets, and the necessary pipeline and distribution systems. The design of the system should be done by a professional engineer or a certified medical gas installer.

The installation process may involve the following steps:

  1. Preparing the site for installation, which may include removing old gas lines, repairing walls or floors, and installing support structures.
  2. Installing the gas source equipment, including cylinders, bulk storage tanks, or medical air compressors.
  3. Installing the pipeline and distribution system, including pipes, valves, regulators, and manifolds.
  4. Installing medical gas outlets, including flowmeters, humidifiers, and suction regulators.
  5. Testing the system for leaks and proper function.
  6. Conducting a final inspection to ensure that the system meets all applicable codes and regulations.
  7. Training healthcare facility staff on the proper use and maintenance of the medical gas system.
  8. Developing a maintenance and testing schedule to ensure the ongoing safety and effectiveness of the medical gas system.

It is important to ensure that the installation of medical gas systems is done by qualified personnel who are trained in the proper installation procedures and who adhere to all applicable codes and regulations. A properly installed and maintained medical gas system is critical to patient care and safety.

Medical Testing Solutions works with facility directors to provide streamlined medical gas installations. Our services include drafting blueprints, supervising our ASSE certified medical gas technicians, shopping for and ordering the equipment you need at wholesale rates, and certifying the completed installation per NFPA guidelines.

The Correct Personnel:

Per NFPA guidelines, medical gas installations must be performed by ASSE 6010 Medical Gas Installers and ASME IX Brazer’s. Our medical gas installation team can handle everything from plumbing entire hospital wings, to installing new alarm panels in smaller surgery centers and dental offices. Upon completion of your new medical gas installation, MTS will provide you with a Medical Gas Verification. These verifications are required per NFPA guidelines and must be conducted on all new downstream pipelines and equipment within the gas delivery system.

Ordering the Equipment:

We provide wholesale distribution through every major medical gas manufacturer spec’d for your project, so all installations contracted through MTS come with discounted prices on equipment. During the planning and blueprinting phase we’ll be able to tell you everything you need, how long it takes to be delivered, what the cost will be, and what it costs to install and verify the project.

You Should Know These Important NFPA Guidelines on Medical Gas Installations:

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has established guidelines for the installation of medical gas systems in healthcare facilities. These guidelines, known as NFPA 99, provide standards for the design, installation, and testing of medical gas systems to ensure the safety of patients and healthcare personnel.

Here are some of the key NFPA guidelines for medical gas installations:

  1. Medical gas systems must be designed and installed by qualified personnel who are familiar with the applicable codes and regulations.
  2. Medical gas systems must be designed to meet the specific needs of the healthcare facility, including the types and quantities of gases needed, the location of gas outlets, and the necessary pipeline and distribution systems.
  3. Medical gas systems must be properly labeled and identified, including gas identification labels on all outlets and pipelines.
  4. Medical gas systems must be properly tested and inspected for leaks, corrosion, and other damage.
  5. Medical gas systems must be equipped with appropriate safety features, such as alarm systems, shut-off valves, and pressure relief valves.
  6. Medical gas systems must be installed in a manner that minimizes the risk of fire and explosion.
  7. Medical gas systems must be properly maintained and serviced, including regular testing and inspection.
  8. Healthcare facility staff must be trained on the proper use and maintenance of the medical gas system.

Adhering to these guidelines helps ensure that medical gas installations are safe, effective, and compliant with applicable codes and regulations. Healthcare facilities should work closely with qualified professionals to design, install, and maintain their medical gas systems in accordance with NFPA guidelines.
