Find out about your compliance duties as an espresso machine operator.

See how Espress Test can help you with compliance as well as preventative & reactive maintenance.

Espresso Machines & Boiler inspections

Your espresso machine contains a pressurised vessel that is subject to the Pressure System Safety Regulations 2000. Espress Test and our team of licensed inspecting engineers provide cost-effective Pressure Vessel Inspections to meet your obligation to comply with this legal requirement.

You can find out more from the HSE website at https://www.hse.gov.uk/pressure-systems/user.htm or https://www.hse.gov.uk/pressure-systems/about.htm

The Regulations

The PSSR regulations are in place to reduce the risk of catastrophic failure of a pressure system. Even a small espresso machine has the potential to cause property damage injury or death from catastrophic failure. The duty holder is responsible for ensuring compliance and will be personally liable for damage or litigation claims.

What we can provide

Although Pressure Vessel Inspections (PVIs) are separate from your routine annual servicing and reactive breakdowns all of our licensed representatives are time served engineers so it’s likely they will be able to complete general servicing as well as attend to breakdowns of your espresso machine. Most offer discounts when servicing is carried out at the same time as the PVI, often saving you downtime and money.

Find an Engineer

Although our offices and training facilities are based in Cornwall, Espress Test’s reach is far and wide: National service companies, coffee distributors, machine suppliers and independent engineers from all over the UK work to our methods. Because we only accept ‘time served’ engineers on our course you can be sure that your equipment will be inspected by an engineer with the right experience to offer an informed evaluation.
