Flammable and combustible fluids equipment services overview
We use the term gas and oil equipment to encompass more than 150 types of products intended for the handling and storage of flammable and combustible fluids. Having such a variety of possible product families can make it complicated to determine which specific requirements apply to your product, how to interpret them, and where your product can be marketed.
Fortunately, we have the knowledge and expertise to evaluate, test and certify your gas and oil equipment in accordance with hundreds of U.S., Canadian, European and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards under the North American, IECEE (CB Scheme) and IECEx conformity assessment systems.
