PSSR Inspections for Commercial Coffee Machines

If you have a commercial coffee machine that uses pressurised steam then it’s essential that you have a PSSR (Pressured Steam Safety Regulations) check carried out regularly. The PSSR inspection includes a thorough safety inspection of the pressurised vessel and valves to ensure your commercial coffee machine’s in tip top condition and is safe to use.

Liquidline’s experienced, fully-trained Engineers can carry out a PSSR inspection on a Liquidline supplied machine, as well as those provided by other suppliers, completing a fully comprehensive service and providing you with a IOSH certificate.

Why do I need a PSSR check?

A PSSR Inspection ensures that you are meeting your legal obligation to comply with the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (2000) and also protects your visitors and team from accidents that can occur when machines are left unmaintained. Failure to have your machine PSSR checked regularly may also invalidate your liability insurance.

About PSSR Inspections

What does a PSSR check include?

One of our IOSH certified Engineers will visit your premises where they will carry out a fully functional pressure test of the steam boiler safety valve, as well as an internal and external check of the steam boiler vessel. 

The Engineer will first strip the machine down, before draining the boiler and removing the heating element. They will then inspect the boiler and valve thoroughly inside and out, before reassembling the coffee machine. The machine will then be tested again at full pressure to complete the inspection.

The boiler examination specifically checks for any corrosion and points of weakness. Once your check is complete and we are satisfied with the condition of your machine, we will provide you with an IOSH certificate. Should it be required, we can also provide internal images of the steam boiler for further clarity.

How often is a PSSR check required?

Under the terms of the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (2000) you have a statutory duty to have your commercial coffee machine inspected once it is over 14 months old. After this, we advise having your machine checked every 12-months or so, though this does vary depending on the type of machine and frequency of use.

Do all commercial coffee machines need to be inspected?

Not all commercial coffee machines require a PSSR check, only machines that use a pressurised vessel, such as Bean to Cup and Traditional Espresso Machines, require regular PSSR testing. Most filter coffee machines for example do not require a PSSR inspection, though we still recommend regular maintenance to prolong the life of the machine and ensure it’s safe for your team to use.
