Commissioning and Testing of the Lab and Industrial Gas Infrastructure

Multigas commission and test all installations to industry accepted methodology

Commissioning of laboratory and industrial gas systems is a crucial process that ensures the safe, efficient, and reliable operation of these systems. Whether it’s in a research laboratory, manufacturing facility, or any other industrial setting, commissioning involves a series of steps to verify that the gas systems are designed, installed, and functioning correctly.

Generally Multigas commission installations in accordance with BCGA CP4 guidance.  Other guidance is followed when appropriate.

Here are the general steps involved in commissioning laboratory and industrial gas systems:

Component Inspection

Inspect all components of the gas system, including cylinders, pressure regulators, piping, valves, filters, and any specialized equipment. Check for proper installation, labelling, and compliance with safety standards.

Pressure Testing

Perform pressure testing to verify that the system can handle the required pressure without leaks. This involves pressurizing the system and monitoring for pressure drops over a specified period.

Calibration and Adjustment

Calibrate all measurement and control devices, such as flow meters and pressure gauges, to ensure accurate readings. Adjust system settings as necessary to meet desired operating parameters.

Operational Testing

Test the system under normal operating conditions to ensure proper functioning. This includes validating the delivery of gases at the specified flow rates and pressures.

Emergency Shutdown

Test emergency shutdown procedures and safety interlocks to ensure the system can be quickly and safely shut down in case of any unexpected issues.


Maintain comprehensive documentation throughout the commissioning process. This includes safety assessments, test results and calibration records.


Provide training to personnel who will be operating and maintaining the gas system. Ensure they are familiar with safety protocols, emergency procedures, and routine maintenance tasks.
