Gas Safe

Gas interlock systems, what are they?

Gas safety interlock systems are required in all commercial kitchens. Gas Safe regulations and BS6173 both require a gas interlock system to be fitted. This ensures that the commercial kitchen ventilation system is working before the gas is turned on. This prevents a build up of potentially poisonous gas combustion fumes in the kitchen which would be harmful to the health of kitchen staff and others within the premises.
If any gas appliances do not have Flame Failure Devices (FFD's) fitted, then a gas proving system MUST also be fitted to comply with regulations. If you need advice or assistance please contact our sales department on 01702 382307.

 

Gas interlock system

Ventam 75 is a gas interlock system that cuts off the supply of gas should the kitchen mechanical ventilation system fail or if the ventilation system is turned down below a pre-set safe level. We can also supply solenoid valves, pressure switches and fan current monitoring devices.

Gas proving system

Ventam 85 is a gas interlock AND gas proving system. This is required if ANY gas appliance does not have flame supervision fitted. The Ventam 85 is supplied with the gas proving valve to the size you require and also with either an extract fan pressure switch kit or a fan motor current monitor.

Automatic Gas Interlock Systems

Ventam 76 This is a demand-based ventilation control and interlock system. This provides automatic regulation of the extract and supply air system in proportion to actual real-time gas and electricity consumption. It will also cut off the supply of gas should the mechanical ventilation system fail. This is an energy efficient system that reduces electricity consumption and CO2 emissions by varying ventilation flow rates to suit the varying demand.

Laboratories, boiler rooms, design and technology rooms, workshops etc

Ventam 80 Gas Proving System. This system proves by pressure testing that all gas taps and appliances are isolated before the main gas valve will open. This is often linked to gas leak detectors. The system is a one key operation to gas prove the system. If the system does not gas prove within the adjustable time delay period, the gas proving fails.

This system is suitable for laboratories, boiler rooms, design and technology rooms, workshops etc.


MHE Interlock system

Ventam 65 is a Mechanical Handling Equipment (MHE) Charging Interlock system. This system will interlock the extraction fan in a battery charging room to the electrical supply to the battery charger circuits. Applications include Fork lift trucks, battery room etc.
