Cleartech’s Approach

Our full scope of works included cleaning and chlorination of new installation hot and cold water services to BS8558 Specification at the Forfar Community Campus. Multiple potable water samples were taken and tested at a UKAS accredited laboratory and results were issued to our client. We also carried out a full pre-commission chemical clean, static flushing, biocide wash, dynamic flushing and dosing of corrosion inhibitor fully in accordance with BSRIA BG 29/2012 Pre-commission Cleaning of Pipework Systems. The estimated water content of the LTHW heating installation at the community campus was 38,200 litres and treatment chemicals used included biocide, polymer and corrosion inhibitor.

Our HVAC commissioning works included carrying out water and ventilation balancing of systems as dictated by the project specification. All works were carried out as per C.I.B.S.E code ‘A’ and ‘W’, complete with final report. The systems comprised of pumps, commissioning sets, AHU’s, Ex fans, S fans, T Ex fans, S grilles, Ex grilles, Ex Canopys and T Ex grilles. Cleartech invest considerable time, effort and resources in developing the expertise of our engineers and ensuring that all work is completed fully within regulation guidelines so if you have a project that requires our services then contact us today.
