DVK Gas Monitors for Boats
DVK Monitors have been protecting boats from the dangers of explosive gas for many, many years.
The DVK GA286 and GA286SV are GAS/FUME alarms capable of detecting the presence of inflammable gases or vapours in concentrations below the explosive limits.
The T.G.S 813/C sensor used responds to the presence of LPG (Propane/Butane), Natural gas (Methane) and Town gas including petrol fumes with calibration range of 1% to 25% LEL Propane at 20ºC.
Our DVK Monitors WA GA286SV units come with a 12 Volt solenoid and a 4m sensor lead.
They conform to the standard AS/NZS 2013 5601-2 Gas installations for LP gas installations in boats.
These units are not only a requirement but an essential safety requirement, with LPG dropping to the lowest point in unventilated parts of vessels.
Appendix E: COMBUSTIBLE GAS DETECTION SYSTEMS FOR BOATS
E2 GAS DETECTION SYSTEM
Have at least two outlets for connection of external equipment (e.g., gas solenoid valve, audible alarm, bilge blower etc.
Activate the alarm function and cause a solenoid valve to close off the gas supply whenever the concentration of LP Gas in air exceeds 25% of the lower explosive limit.
Have a latching system that continues to indicate an alarm condition until cancelled
Be self-checking and indicate both normal and fault condition
E3 INSTALLATION OF THE SYSTEM
A minimum of two sensors shall be fitted. One sensor shall be fitted in the bilge or at the lowest level where gas would be likely to accumulate and one in the vicinity of the
Operation of the system when gas is detected
When gas is detected at or above the minimum set level, all the following shall occur:
- The gas supply shall be automatically shut off by the solenoid valve and shall not be re-opened until the alarm has been manually cancelled and the system reset.
- The audible alarm shall sound.
- The visual alarm shall be activated.
