North Texas Plumbing Is The Premier Medical Gas Plumber In Dallas Fort Worth

North Texas Plumbing is offering medical gas piping installation, maintenance, and repair services in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex area.

Installing medical gas pipe systems requires specific certifications from the State of Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners. A standard Master Plumber, Journeyman Plumber, or Plumbing Inspector License can be supplemented using a Medical Gas Piping Installation Endorsement. Once one of the three aforementioned standard licenses is approved, a technician is required to have completed a 24-hour training course approved by the TSBPE. A Journeyman Plumber or Master Plumber who holds a Medical Gas Piping Installation Endorsement may install piping used solely to transport gases for medical purposes under the supervision of a Responsible Master Plumber who also holds the endorsement. A Plumbing Inspector who holds a Medical Gas Piping Installation Endorsement may inspect installations of medical gas vacuum piping.

Medical gas systems require specialty-grade copper. They use two types of copper piping: Type K (thicker and heavier) and Type L (thinner copper wall), which both meet NFPA 99 standards for positive pressure medical gas installations. Copper piping is always used to deliver medical-grade gases from a utility room where they are stored in tanks to rooms where they are needed within a medical facility, veterinarian office, hospital, or surgical center.

Medical gas supply systems in hospitals and other healthcare facilities are utilized to supply specialized gases and gas mixtures to various parts of the facility. Products handled by such systems typically include oxygen, medical air, nitrous oxide, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, medical vacuum, waste anesthetic gas disposal (US), or anesthetic gas scavenging system (ISO). Source equipment systems are generally required to be monitored by alarm systems at the point of supply for abnormal (high or low) gas pressure in areas such as the general ward, operating theatres, intensive care units, recovery rooms, or major treatment rooms. Equipment is connected to the medical gas pipeline system via station outlets (US) or terminal units (ISO).

A spokesperson for North Texas Plumbing talks about its staff meeting the aforementioned government-regulated requirements for medical gas plumbing by saying, “North Texas Plumbing is only staffed with certified plumbers who hold the Medical Gas Piping Installation Endorsement.
