Piped Gas & AGSS Systems

We have been a major supplier to the veterinary profession since 1981, for over 30 years we have installed piped medical gas systems, tailored specifically to the unique requirements of veterinary practices, which are distinctly different to those of human medical installations. Because we know how practices operate, we know what works and what doesn’t, saving you from finding out the hard way.
Medically de-greased copper pipe is used for all medical gases from the cylinder store to every outlet in your practice. The size of the pipe will ensure that any pressure loss, due to the length of the run and high flow rate is minimal. We supply and fit all necessary elbows, tees and securing fixtures.
Piped gas not only offers a much-needed solution to traditional cylinders but it can also offer substantial savings too.

Medical-Grade Copper Piping

Fitted with medical-grade copper piping: setting the gold standard in veterinary piped gas systems.

Safety Features

Advanced safety measures ensuring optimal staff protection.

Bespoke Designs

Designed & fitted to your practice’s unique requirements.

Comprehensive Service

Comprehensive Design, Installation, and Fitting all by Burtons.

Dramatically reduce your gas bill, how?

The gas is supplied in larger cylinders which are more cost effective. You will also be renting far fewer cylinders and will, therefore, be saving on delivery charges. Gas is supplied in larger cylinders at a lower cost.

Health, Safety & Hygiene

Our system includes all of the key safety features of any standard piped gas installation, including: cylinders located outside of the building, in a central store accessible by your gas delivery driver meaning your staff will not have to manhandle heavy cylinders throughout the building and reduced fire risk as large volumes of gas are not kept in different locations, but Burtons piped gas systems go a step further, fully fitted with medical copper piping using strict medical standards as guidance, plus additional safety features included with each system, for optimal staff safety.

Active Gas Scavenging Systems

Active gas scavenging provides the most reliable method of waste gas extraction from your practice. Our AGSS design is the same standard as found in human hospitals, assuring your safety. We will design, build, install and maintain an active gas scavenging system that is tailored to your unique needs and working environment. Whether you are upgrading an existing practice or planning a new veterinary centre, we are here to help you to comply with practice standards and health and safety legislation

Cylinder Store

We can install an external galvenised cylinder store if your practice does not already have an external storage room.

Gas Controls

Regulators are included with the system to reduce cylinder content pressure to the appropriate working pressure. 


We offer a choice of surface-mounted wall outlets or flexible ceiling pendants. Surfacemounted outlets consist of a smooth white ABS casing similar in appearance to a household electrical fitting.

Anaesthetic Machines

Your anaesthesia apparatus may require modification or replacement for use with piped gases. We can carry out modifications during the main installation.

Air Breaks

Each anaesthetic machine will additionally require an air break for use with the AGSS. The air break eliminates any induced flow from the patient circuit.

Low-pressure warning device

This is fixed in line with the oxygen pipeline and will emit an audible warning if the line pressure falls below 30psi.  Removes the need to leave the building to isolate the gas supply when it is not in use.
