Drawings representing medical gas pipeline systems are the primary tool of the Authorised Person - Medical Gas Pipeline System in the management of the system. The drawings and associated detail must be able to be relied upon as lives could be put at risk if errors are left undetected.
Accuracy, therefore, is a prerequisite of any such undertaking and validation of the drawings should be carried out to prove the drawings are a true representation of the installed systems. BOC Healthcare thus produces As-Fitted Drawings rather than the less comprehensive Schematic Drawings.
The As-Fitted Drawings we provide include:
Main distribution pipe-work with branches to, and internally within, wards and departments
Direction of flow and pipe work sizing together with locations where pipe-work changes size.
Controls and warning equipment – valves, pressure reducing sets and alarm systems (excludes wiring runs)
Terminal unit details (number and gas type)
Valve chart detailing: valve number, key number and area served where identified. Also details the date of verification of the valve in question and provides sufficient information to enable valve and Area Valve Service Unit (AVSU) labels to be manufactured.
Current ward and department names and functions
The drawings are created in the latest AutoCAD software, usually to 1:100 scale. Each gas is separately layered accurately enough to show the general location of equipment and run of pipe-work.
