Medical gases delivery system for Imperial West
Imperial West is Imperial College London’s major new campus located in White City, Hammersmith. The development will comprise of nine new buildings, which will provide multi-disciplinary research space for Imperial scientists and engineers.
The building modules are being manufactured offsite to reduce costs and minimise disruption to the busy surrounding area. Medical Gases pipework will be installed inside the relevant modules at the manufacturing facility.
Medical Gases is designing, supplying delivering, installing, testing and commissioning the nitrogen, compressed air, and laboratory gas systems at Imperial West, Build C. The special gases consist of 350 individual gas manifolds to feed over 3200 outlet points.

Quench pipe ensures safety at Papworth Hospital
Papworth Hospital is the UK’s largest specialist cardiothoracic hospital. Papworth Hospital’s radiology service has a key role in the diagnosis of all cardiothoracic conditions. The service uses state-of-the-art imaging technology and facilities include a CT and MRI scanner. The Radiology Department images over 50,000 patients each year.
The magnet in the MRI scanner at Papworth is cooled with liquid helium. As helium turns to gas and expands rapidly at temperatures above -260° C the system requires a safety valve and quench pipe to ensure that in the unlikely event of the helium turning to gas it will be safely dispersed outside the building.
Medical Gases engineered and installed a quench pipe, designed to withstand extreme cold, to provide this safety measure.
