Socket & See TB118 ESSENTIAL KIT

The Socket & See TB118 ESSENTIAL KIT equips gas engineers with all the necessary tools to ensure the safe electrical isolation of gas appliances, adhering strictly to Technical Bulletin 118. Each kit includes the Socket & See VVD PRO, a non-contact voltage indicator designed to detect hazardous voltages on appliances, pipework, and exposed metal work in compliance with TB118, BS 6891, and BS 6400. This device alerts users visually and physically to any dangerous voltage present, enhancing safety during checks.

Enhanced Functionality and Safety Measures

To prevent accidental energisation when appliances are connected to the mains, the kit includes various lock-off devices suitable for 13 Amp plugs, MCB/RCD, and fused spurs, complete with prohibition tags to support a full lockout-tagout procedure. Additionally, the inclusion of a two-pole voltage indicator and proving unit allows for the thorough execution of safe isolation procedures. The VIP200, a highlight of the kit, offers a continuity test function, a flashlight, and single pole indication, making it incredibly versatile and practical for tight spaces and intricate work.

Reliable and Practical for Everyday Use

Engineered for ease of use and lasting reliability, the TB118 ESSENTIAL KIT is tailored to meet the rigorous demands of daily operations in various environments. The robust construction of each tool ensures longevity and resistance to wear, providing consistent performance under the most challenging conditions. With tools specifically designed to simplify complex procedures, gas engineers can focus more on their work and less on equipment concerns.

The SP200 proving unit in the kit ensures that the voltage indicators are accurately verified both before and after use, as mandated by stages 2 and 4 of the TB118 safe isolation procedure. Moreover, the kit facilitates the essential earth loop impedance test for class 1 (earthed enclosure) gas appliances, which can be performed using the PDL234 without risking the tripping of the installation’s RCD.
