About Anaesthetic Gas Scavenger Systems (AGSS)

Anaesthetic gas scavenger systems (AGSS) are used to remove waste gases from rooms in hospitals and veterinary surgeries to protect people and animals from harmful gases. These waste fumes can be hazardous even at low concentrations.

The systems are efficient, ensuring all operating theatres and other rooms comply with UK regulations. This includes keeping gas limits below 100 ppm for nitrous oxide, 10 ppm for halogenated volatile anaesthetic agents and 10 ppm for halothane.

Additionally, these systems can come with features such as remote alarm reporting and control panels. Consult a specialist to learn more about these features.

What Does Servicing Involve?

Regular servicing is essential to keep the system and its components in good condition. Professional servicing often includes:

  • Cleaning Components
  • Adjusting & Calibrating Settings
  • Diagnosing & Fixing Issues
  • Testing Equipment

Through these inspections, experts will ensure your equipment is working efficiently. They can diagnose and resolve a range of issues quickly, getting your system running again as soon as possible.


The Importance Of Preventative Maintenance

To avoid expensive and time-consuming repairs or even replacements, investing in preventive maintenance is crucial. This can ensure that the scavenging gas systems are running efficiently and prevents any faults or damaged components from getting worse.

Annual routine servicing is the most effective way to keep your equipment in the best condition. Additional, organising regular inspections and servicing will ensure you have evidence of equipment maintenance for RCVS Accreditation.
