LPG Gas Specifications Mobile Catering Van

by craggy
(stoke)

Hi I am trying to find gas specifications guidance for catering trailer/vans. I have to gas up a griddle, Baine Marie and water boiler.

I am going to install the pipework but not connect us as the quotes i was getting were way over the odds. I just need to know if its 15mm main gas pipe to a regulator and if the bends need to be the bolt on type connectors or solder type bend joints,. Once i get this in i will use a gas engineer to connect to appliances and do the gas cert ticket.

Has anyone got a spec sheet or can jut give me these details Cheers

gas engineers can be so very expensive.

Hi, It can be hard work. I found a very good qualified gas engineer who is not too expensive- after calling around 60 numbers from the gas register website!!!!!. I can pass on his details. Where are you?

SAFETY TICKET
by: Anonymous

To be able to issue a ticket any engineer has to do a course for a week and cost of £800, so pay the money, or kill yourself, as an engineer I would not connect your appliances to your pipework !

Hi Im going to track down some trailer builders and get quotes thanks, it may actually be a better idea than the gassafe website as they will already know or indeed do the work.

Stay Safe
by: David

Hello There,

Do try and get some quotes for the work as this can vary greatly. I understand that cost will also be a big factor, but you don't want to get to a point where those cost will increase if other work is needed at a later date.

Here are some LPG engineers that you may want to contact to get a quote.

Lpg Engineer Stroud Gloucestershire


LPG Engineer Wales

LPG Engineer Norfolk Area

Also try searching the Gas Safe Register

Be safe and the best of luck,

David

Many thanks, it is my preferred method however locally they dont seem to want the work as only 4 things to gas up and 2 sections of 15mm, one quy quoted 2k for this?? and £80 for the ticket. is crazy as he said would take him 4 hrs to do the work, i will try and find others through the routes you suggest as its setting me back now over 3 weeks trying to find someone. Many Thanks

LPG Gas Specifications
by: Brain

Hi There,

You need to be a qualified gas fitter with the lp1cmc qualification, not only to fit and connect an appliance but the gas pipework as well. This is a requirement under the gas safety installation and use regulations; this qualification includes the ability to correctly size pipework and regulators. There are a whole host of other regulations relating to routing of pipework in relation electrics.

You are unlikely to find a properly qualified gas fitter willing to sign off your work as his own, which may mean extra expense in alterations to pass an LPG test. You will need this test certificate as most even organisers/local council will want this document before you can trade. So please bear this mind before you start work.

DIY work is one of the reasons I tend only to work for manufacturers, based on the number of times I've had to walk away from a customer who, having carried out the work themselves, has not met the regulations and just wants to argue the regulations.

Get some quotes from trailer manufacturers to have the refurbishment work carried out professionally is my advice.

Best,
Brian
