Presscision Incorporated, a manufacturer of innovative test equipment for the plumbing industry, is pleased to announce that its Presscision PPT Pressure Test Instrument has been accepted for use by the New York City Department of Buildings for fuel gas testing.
The city of New York implemented new fuel gas inspection regulations on January 1, 2019. The law, Local Law 2016/152, requires periodic inspection (5-year frequency) of all gas service lines using portable combustible gas detectors and visual inspection. It is anticipated that the new law will significantly increase the demand for accurate pressure testing of fuel gas lines. Therefore, this acceptance is instrumental for plumbers conducting fuel gas testing throughout the city.
The Presscision PPT Instrument is a rugged, portable instrument providing automated pressure and temperature testing for commercial and residential plumbing installations. It is used to conduct regulatory testing of natural gas installations, water supply lines, drain waste vent (DWV) lines, fire suppression systems, and med gas distribution systems.
“New York City has strict test requirements, so we are honored to have the instrument accepted for gas testing, a true testament to the quality, reliability and accuracy of our instrument,” said Edwin Slate, president and founder of Presscision Incorporated. “A plumber can expect unquestionable accuracy, foolproof test automation, and permanent record keeping when using the Presscision PPT instrument.”
