Gas Detection in Commercial Kitchens

Requirements for commercial kitchen gas supplies are very important. These standards and guidance notes are very prescriptive defining the use of gas safety proving systems, gas detection and ventilation interlocks.

PGF-30 Gas Interlock and Gas Detection panel, is a modular solution for kitchen gas safety, utilising RFID technology. The controller and its supplied pressure transmitter is used to control the gas supply to the kitchen via a gas solenoid valve. The controller ‘proves’ the integrity of the downstream kitchen gas supply by introducing a small amount of gas and then monitoring the pressure to ‘prove’ the system is leak tight. When the controller determines all is well the main supply is switched on. Should the pressure fall then the system will alert to check for leaks (open gas taps etc). PGF-30 uses a pressure transducer to directly measure the kitchen gas pressure and does not use more common pressure switches.
