Coffee Machine PSSR Boiler Test

Coffee Machine PSSR Testing

Is Your Coffee Machine Safe?

HTG Service engineers can carry out a full PSSR test on both traditional and bean-to-cup. A lot of other coffee machine service companies are unable to offer this service!

Since early 2000, it has been a legal requirement to have an annual PSSR boiler test carried out on your commercial coffee machine, both traditional and bean-to-cup.

Failure to do so can lead to invalid insurance and warranty.

Pressure Systems Safety Regulations… or PSSR Coffee Machine Test

Traditional Coffee EquipmentIf you own a commercial coffee machine that uses pressurised steam, and is older than 14 months from date of new supply, you have a statutory obligation to meet the stringent legal requirement of the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000.

The Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 require pressure systems to be inspected in accordance with a Written Scheme of Examination. The test is designed to prevent serious injury from the hazard of stored energy. The regulations apply to owners and users of systems containing ‘relevant fluids’, (which include steam, gases under pressure and any fluids kept artificially under pressure and which become gases when released into the atmosphere). The term ‘fluids’ includes gases and liquids which are capable of exerting a vapour pressure. Coffee Machine boiler operates at 100°C and over, it comes under the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations.

Bean-To-Cup Coffee EquipmentIf you continue to use a traditional espresso machine or automatic bean-to-cup machine with a steam boiler without the required testing, you will be in contravention of the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000. As a result, you will invalidate a comprehensive insurance claim made regarding any incident on that machine.

All commercial coffee equipment incorporating a pressure vessel which generates steam come under the PSSR requirement.

  • If the machine passes, the engineer will notify HTG Service who will issue a PSSR Test Certificate for the coffee machine to indicate it has passed.
  • If the machine fails for any reason a service & repair visit by your preferred service company will have to be arranged and your machine cannot be used until it has been passed.
