PREVENT[m]s – methane gas safety system

General Details


Certified quality– the detector holds a Kitemark Certificate issued by British Standards Institution according to the BS EN 50194-1:2009 standard

Simple design– friendly shape, easy to integrate in any home design

Dedicated– the device is designed to detect accidental methane gas leaks at a level much lower than the Lower Explosion Limit

Double alarm– provides both a visual alarm (red light) and an audible alarm (buzzer)

Configurable– designed to be installed as either a single detector with one solenoid valve or multiple detectors for the same valve

Auto-diagnostic– contains an auto-diagnostic system for checking the sensor’s good condition. The yellow light turned on, together with the sound alarm, indicates a possible malfunction of the detector

Test/Reset– the detector features a double-purpose button: in normal working conditions it allows the user to periodically test the detector, and while the alarm is triggered, the button can be pressed to stop it.

Solenoid Valve

Normally open/closed safety solenoid valves with manual reset. The closing/opening function is
electrically activated.
This type of device connected to one or more methane gas detectors and/or carbon monoxide
detectors, is suitable for performing locking operations on the gas line.

An incorporated  finene mesh filter protects the valve seat and disc as well as downstream components
and prevents dirty contamination (except brass models). All components are designed to withstand
any mechanical, chemical and thermal condition occuring during typical service. Efective
impregnation and surface treatments have been used to improve mechanical sturdiness, sealing and
resistance to corrosion of the components.
Valves are 100% tested by computerized testing machineries and are fully warranted.
